Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Okay... No refurbished stamp. I asked about it in the few hours I was playing phone tag w/xbox today and they said that there was some hardware changed out d/t overheating. I don't have my old serial, and don't know if it's a new console. Don't believe so. Onlline? I can log in just fine w/ my profile. I have to play a game logged in online if I want to save or load or anything. Works fine if I am. Not at all if I'm not. I bought the Halo 3 edition 360, same hd that came with the console. No mods to the hd or box at all. go to the 360's menu System from the dashboard and "reset system to default", but make sure hd is not installed... Not installed means pop it off the top, right? Anyway, does that info. give you any more ideas? Whether or not it did, do I have the jist of what you wanted me to do here? Any risks involved? Thanks for the help, and the quick reply. Even the folks at xbox fall over themselves and give differrent answers between different folks... wonder what caused this anyway. licensing?

>pop of the HD (yes)
>Risk(some) The only thing you would have to do is "after you reset
your xbox " is download the lateset version of live which if your on-line it is automatic. (if you accept the download)
>Make sure before reset back to default to write down any settings that may make it easier for you to get back on Live
>IP address-DNS- etc.
>Before you go back on-line try to play the game disc to see if you can play
>if not it could be the drive that they installed is bad
> Or the software was encode incorrect...but that is not something that you just download from xbox site. You have to send that in to you guess it or a qualified xbox Repair tech.
> I asked if the xbox you sent in was the same one you received
because in most cases and my own they sent me a replacement.
> This does not really narrow anything down accept for maybe they replace more than just the drive and there was a bad sector or something with the software. I did some research on your problem and I have not had any luck with you issue. I wish I could give you a quick fix but...nothing from MS is easy

Every time i put my brand new (purchased two hours ago) call of duty black ops game, the screen goes to the XBOX 360 screen, and freezes there. the hard drive i have for my console is also brand new, well...

firstly its refurbished so you have to be careful because it may have had problems in the past, it referring to your hard drive by the way. ad secondly maybe its just your black ops disc? try playing black ops on another xbox console and if it freezes than its not your console its just the game =) then get a replacement and dont worry.

personally never buy a refurbished xbox,unless u want to be swaping parts in and out all the time, people dont usually return xboxs, simply becasue of the multimedia se unless it has gone bad, so spend that extra money and you should be set there is the xbox elite, in black and xbox pro in plain white but there is different versions like 60 gb 8 gb or 40 gb harddrives. there is also special edition xboxs but gamestop might not carry them

Xbox freezes constantly

It's definetly a massive multiple hardware failure. I recommend you take it back to the retailer to be replaced. If your warranty is still active, that is. Getting it refurbished again could cause more damage to it, so a replacement really would be the best solution.

Have you got the internet connected to your Xbox 360? If so, i have two relevent answers:

1: Don't press update, i've heard that the update is not a necessity to playing the game.


2: Contact the store that you rented it from or; Contact microsoft and tell them the problem.


If you haven't got the internet connected to your xbox 360 then it WON'T work.
