Can I get professional help with setting Xbox up?


I am thinking of getting a Xbox 360, but I dont want to set it up myself because im scared it wont work like what happened with my computer. Can i get professional help to set it up? Is it free or would it cost much? I live in Europe.

  1. Just Follow these instructions:

    Unbox and position the console

    Step 1: Unbox the console

    An Xbox 360 game system typically includes:


    A/V cable (varies by console package)

    Power supply

    Power cord

    Wireless controller

    2 AA batteries

    User manual

    Wired headset (varies by console package)

    Step 2: Remove the protective tape

    Good placement Poor placement

    Step 3: Position the console

    Make sure that the location for your console is as follows:


    Well-ventilated, relatively cool, and away from direct heat sources.

    Uncluttered. Do not put other objects on, under, or right next to the console.

    You can position the console vertically or horizontally.

    Plug in the power supply

    Connect the power supply to the console first.

    Plug the power cord into the power supply.

    Then plug the power cord into an electrical outlet.

    Connect the console to your TV

    Most new console systems include a Composite Audio/Video cable. You can use this cable to connect the console to a standard television or monitor. This cable does not support high-definition display.

    If you have a HDTV, see Connect your console to a TV.

    Composite AV Cable connection with a standard-definition TV or monitor:

    Connect the A/V connector to the A/V port on the console.

    Locate the A/V ports on your TV or monitor. Connect the color-coded connectors on the composite A/V cable to the corresponding ports on the TV as follows:

    Yellow = composite video

    Red = right-channel analog audio

    White = left-channel analog audio

    Note Monaural (mono) TVs have only one audio jack. Connect either the red or white connector to the TV.

    Turn on the TV and console.

    When you turn on the console and TV, you should see the Xbox Dashboard on your display.

    If you do not see the Xbox Dashboard, you might need to change the video input setting. To change the video input setting, refer to your TV or Entertainment Center manual for instructions.

    To improve the video display, you can change the default settings.

    Connect a controller

    If you have a wired controller, see Connect a game controller.

    Connect a wireless controller

    Turn on the console.

    Insert the AA batteries into the controller.

    Turn on your controller by pressing and holding the center Xbox Guide button, until the controller turns on. If the controller does not turn on, check the batteries. If you’re using a rechargeable controller, make sure that it is charged.

    Press and release the connect button on the console.

    Within 20 seconds, press and release the connect button on the controller.


    When the lights surrounding the power button on the console stop flashing, the controller is connected.

    You can connect up to four controllers to a console.

    Each connected controller is assigned to one of four positions. Each position corresponds to a lighted section around the console’s power button and the controller’s Xbox Guide button.

    Set your console settings

    The first time that you start your console, you’re prompted to:

    Select your language.

    Create a profile.

    Set up a network connection (optional). For information about how to connect to Xbox LIVE, see Wired connection or Wireless connection.

    Follow the on-screen instructions to complete these steps.

    Now, insert a game disc and you’re ready to start playing!

  2. Europe is a big place, and that is not helpful.

    Also, you won’t need professional help. The Xbox is absolutely simple to set up. Just connect it to the TV, make sure it’s plugged in, and it’ll guide you through things.
