Have you ever wished that you could make minor improvements for your beloved XBOX 360 and have it perform optimally? Here are some XBOX walkthroughs on how you can make your favorite gaming console work the way you wanted it to be – Do It Yourself style!
First, did you know that you can save money by opting NOT to purchase the official XBOX 360 premium HDMI cable? If you have not bought the XBOX 360 Elite due to cash constraint, you can save $49.99 and STILL enjoy HDMI and Digital Optical features. You might have discovered that the HDMI and component AV slots are in extremely close proximity, and noticed that the component AV is encased in a thick casing. For these reasons, there is no way you can plug them both into your XBOX 360 at the same time. To counter this, you need a basic HDMI cable. Remove the plastic casing from your AV cable by carefully slitting the sides with a pen knife, and voila – $49.99 saved from the clutches of Microsoft!
If you noticed that your XBOX 360 has been frequently acting up and freezes during game play, you can get a cleaning duster and blow out all the air holes in your console and the opened up DVD drive. Alternatively you can lift your power supply and suspend it in mid air using a sturdy rope. Never place your console on a dirty carpet lest harmful participles are sucked up.
Lastly, a slightly pricier way to curb XBOX 360 freezing is to invest in a good notebook cooler and have your XBOX 360 stay cool on top of the surface!
