    Console powers, attempts to cycle, shuts down


    On Wednesday I got error msgs when attempting to open several games. I retried & they played okay. On Thursday my console began refusing to boot. The power button lights, the console powers, Hard drive spins (clicks 4 times over a 40-45 second period),
    then console shuts off. Same routine every time. Anyone got this?

    :)

    Console powers, attempts to cycle, shuts down

    One other thing to consider is shutting down (quitting) previous opened (started) games before starting another.

    You can quit a game, and go back to the guide, but until you press, the three line right side small button on the controller, to quit a game or app, it is still ready to resume where it left off.

    Quitting a game or app releases the memory resources reserved, allowing those resources for the next application for trouble free use.

    Other than that, a restart of the console, from a Full Shutdown, should achieve clearing the virtual memory cache used by the console.

    Hello,

    I've had this issue numerous times for whatever reason. I simply just hard reset the Xbox. Unplug the power cable from the console for 45 seconds and the system will boot up from the original screen. It's not a factory reset and will not remove any of your

    We tried that. Same results. We're thinking the HDD too. I appreciate the response.
