Hi there. The xbox 360 suffers from overheating, and different symptoms can be seen after the board has 'warped', from overheating. Basically, the video processor chip and/of the video memory chips gets disconnected from the main board from overheating. The behavior of the console can be many things, from the '3 Rings of Death' which consists of the console not even starting up with the 3 front lights flashing, to occasional freezing, lockups, video artifacts and lines. You might notice a difference in the console's behavior depending on the actual temperature of it. If it freezes on each startup, even on a 'cold' boot, the board is probably bad enough now. If you're really out of luck with getting MS to replace it, you might try the 'towel' method. It's still better than using the xbox as a doorstop. I won't be describing this technique here as it's a bit weird, but you can find it on xbox-scene.com forums, searching for 'towel' might get you some tutorial on it. It basically consists of blocking both the air intake and exhaust of the console, which makes the internal temperature so high it actually 'reflows' the connection between the graphics processor and the board. That worked for a few guys it seems, but it's far from a 'by the book' technique, to say the least. :) Hope that helps, cheebster.

How to download music on to it


Hello,

follow the steps below:

  1. Put a CD of your favorite music into your computer, and then open your Zune player. Click on the music that you want to copy.
  2. Click on the "Rip" button, and then save your music with any of the following file extensions: .wma, .wmv, .mp3, .jpg, .mp4, .m4v, .m4a, .m4b or .mov. The ability to play music in all of these formats is one of the features that make Zune such a superior digital player.
  3. Plug your Zune player into your computer using a USB cable, and then the Zune software will automatically import all of your selected music into the player. Set the "Sync" option to "Default" so that all the music in your directory will install in your Zune player whenever you plug it into your computer.
  4. Purchase music online by either buying each song individually (usually for about 99 cents a song) or buying a membership to a website where you get unlimited downloads. You automatically get a membership to Zune Marketplace when you purchase Zune, and you can get unlimited downloads there.
I hope the above steps will help to solve your problem.

Good luck

For the x box 360,after creating football team can not enter code


NBA 2K7 for XBox 360 utilizes the Xbox's multi-analog stick controller, allowing you to use one of the sticks to shoot and dunk. A fancy dunk is a special move. It could be a twirl in the middle of the dunk or some another type of motion; it depends on the player. Players who have the ability to fancy dunk have different types. It's important to note that not all players can fancy dunk---it depends on their dunk rating.

Nba live 09 freezing up


ya i happens to me also..i figured that
It seems like something with EA sports games make them highly vulnerable to freezing. It does that with FIFA, NHL, and Madden as well from what I hear (already froze on me once on FIFA). It could be that these games are too demanding in information processing and too graphic intensive, or whatever, but it's probably not the system. For example, I've played many games for over 40 hours now, sometimes playing hours on at a time, and it hasn't froze or glitched on me even once...

I WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT USING MY MP3


I dont know what kind of mp3 player you have. Mp3 players can be great! you load music on them, and some of the nicer ones even video. The two big types are ipod and Zune you probably have one of the two. If you have a ipod, theirs a lot you can do. you can download a couple simple games, like guess that song, and stuff like that. just do a search for ipod games. you can often inport them to tthe ipod using itunes

if youve got a zune, boy are you in for a ride! the zune is an amaizing mp3 player, it has many features. Besides playing music, videos, and games, the zune lets you wirelessly connect to other zunes in the area and trade music. This music can be kept for 3 days. Now i mentioned games, The games are awesome, Zune users have created all kinds of games and software for the zune, from colored games like racing games RPG games, connect for games, and all the ipod classic type games. its a very powerful mp3 player which looks a little fancier than the ipod, and works just as well.
