Xbox 360 Slim freezes up when I sign into Xbox Live?


I’ve had my Xbox for a little over a year now no problems up till now, I turned it on and it would say “one friend online” as it was loading then it would freeze before it got to the dashboard. A friend said to take out the hard drive and put it back in, I did and it started up and when to the Dashboard, but I noticed I wasn’t signed in to Xbox Live, to I hit inside and it’s the same thing as before, “one friend online” then it freezes before it gets to the dashboard. Any Idea what’s wrong?

  1. I’m having a similar issue, so it’s not you. I’ve found a workaround, but it makes it so you aren’t signed in to your profile (or xbox live if you want to do the ‘easier’ workaround that I can’t actually do).

    If you’re quick enough, you can sign in with a different profile on your xbox which will cancel that sign-in, and then you can just press the ‘b’ button to cancel the second sign-in, leaving you without a profile but still able to play your xbox.

    The other workaround is to disconnect your xbox from any active internet source and then sign in (As i’ve said, I cannot do this one, and that’s because my connection is wireless, and if I disable that then I would also be disabling the cable and internet for both me and the people living in my downstairs apartment).

  2.

  3. I have 2 xboxes both doing the same thing today. I think there must be a problem with Xbox live
