xbox 360 / Re: red ring of death
« on: January 05, 2009, 06:05:05 PM »
I found out today, after waiting 4 days for my box to come in the mail so I can get my Xbox replaced or repaired, that if you register the repair on their website, that your only shipping option is to print out the shipping label and box it up yourself. This option is fine if you have faith that ups wont smash your gear while it is in the mail. I however work with ups often in my I.t. business and I have had issue with ups in the past destroying a $1200.00 ups (uninterruptible power supply) for a server.
So the option I want is to have Microsoft ship me a box with their own idea of secure packaging that way if ups smashes it, I don’t have to prove that I shipped it in appropriate packing martial. For his option you must call Xbox on the phone and set up the repair...

7 months after I got my Xbox 360 for my birthday, I got the red ring of death....
Thank god MS is going to fix or replace it (hopefully the latter).
I like the games and all the extras you get with Xbox, but as a long term investment I’m not sure... perhaps I should have got a ps3

works every time..

If you need to set your computer up to have a disclaimer at start up. here is how.

 start / run/ type gpedit.msc press enter

in computer configuration>Windows settings> security settings> Local Policies> security options.

Locate the policies that say

How OE stores files on your hard disk
All of your OE mail folders and messages, local IMAP and Hotmail folders and messages, and all of your subscribed newsgroups and messages are stored in one folder called the store root, or store root folder, or store folder, and in at least one place in OE, the Store root directory. It's default location is

C:\Windows\Application Data\Outlook Express\{GUID}
C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{GUID}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

where {GUID} is the Global Unique IDentifier (technical jargon for a unique long number) used to specify an Identity. Depending on your operating system and upgrade history, your store folder might be located elsewhere. To determine the location of your store, click Tools| Options| Maintenance| Store folder.
