    Had my 360 a while its the one with the hard-drive.

    When i heard the new GTA was coming out i set to work to get it set-up to play online.

    Plugged the phone line in the back and it says it needed an update so clicked yes and it restarted. It then froze and i rest it and its just got a flashing red light round the power button??

    Is it knackered now? And is there anything i can do or do i have to buy another one?

    Help ASAP would be great as i was going to try and get GTA tomorrow!

    Look on ebay and there is guides to help you fix it. you may have to pull it apart to do it though, so if you dont fancy that get a new one.

    Bit of an update:

    I managed to get it working, no red light or anything now. I signed in to XBOX live. Im guessing now all i have to do is buy the XBOX live membership from game?

    you normally get all the red lights when a cable is loose like the video cable. If its 3 red lights its going back to microsoft, if its 2 game set match!

    You had the 'ring of fire' lucky man as Jonesy said thats a dead Xbox, send me home to Gates! I think its a massive hardware failure, but in your case maybe not! I believe if you do suffer the 'ring of fire' you can call it in and Gates will, collect, repair, re-deliever and give you a 3year warranty! Service or what! :)

    Call the service centre number in your instruction manual, they will register the console for you if you haven't already. Then they will arrange for the xbox to by collected!

    That simple!!

    Good luck
