    Xbox One S crashes when opening games & boots up 50% of the time


    Xbox One S boots to the green Xbox screen and crashes, leaving a frozen pixelated screen. After a few hard resets, it boots up normally. When opening any game (tried Fortnite, Ark, Sims, etc.), the game crashes after a few seconds and returns to the xbox
    home screen.

    THINGS I HAVE TRIED:

    -Force closing apps and re-launching

    -Restarting console

    -Hard reset console

    -Unplugging everything and restarting

    -Tried wired, wireless, and no network connections

    -Signing into different accounts

    -Signing into no account

    -Clearing game caches

    -Uninstalling and reinstalling games

    ... and lastly, factory resetting xbox and reinstalling games. The problem persists.

    I'm worried the hard drive is corrupted. The warranty expired 2 months ago and best buy wont touch it. Any thoughts/suggestions?

    :)

    Hi there,

    if there was an issue with the drive I would have expected issues when installing the games too.

    But to rule that out, you can try and connect an external storage device and install/move a game onto that one and try and start the game to see what happens.

    If you already have a external storage device connected, then be sure to try and see what happens when that drive isn't connected.

    If the issue remains and happens again for both scenarios then it's highly likely the console is in need of a repair, see this link for the steps:

    Random Freezing After Aerial Recapture Patch

    KI crashes all the time now. I played four matches tonight and EVERY one of them crashed. KI keeps freezing up and sometimes it doesn't even load when I relaunch it. I hard booted by Xbox One and it worked for all of five minutes and then crashed again.
    Thank goodness Destiny beta is coming soon. This is the pits.
