2 nights ago I realized when I loaded up Operation Flashpoint Red River for the first time that no of the achievements showed up under the games list, when I clicked on it it read "Earned acheivements will show up here, play games to earn acheivements" or something like that. I deleted, reloaded, did the update and still no acheivement descriptions would load. I recently found a copy of PGR, same thing, recent play list etc did not show me playing it. I was advised by another source to Recover My Gamer Tag, which I did. After that I couldnt connect to Live so I gave up and called it a night
Tried again this evening, when I login I get the sign in window everything looks normal and it says "signing in" and the little circle is spinning, spinning and spinning for about 10 minutes now. I recovered my gamer tag again but at the end there was a brief message about sign up not being available and I beleived I clicked ok. I also saw some sort of an alert message that popped up but quickly cycled out when my gamer tag popped up (it flashed so quick I couldnt read it but diffently a warning of some sort about a failure etc...).
My connection is solid, when I do a network test it shows connected across the board. I didnt think recovering a gamer tag would jack stuff up, I heard it is a fix sometimes when things get glitchy. Look, I am not tech whiz, I can figure this much out: obviously my account works here to get on to Xbox.com, plus I accessed my gamer tag thru my Windows phone so its not like that part is corrupt. My network/internet is fine or I wouldn,t be posting this. I do have 4 green lights on the front of my consol glowing brightly all the time, this started a while back and I have plugged and replugged etc. I know the RROD, what all 4 green mean and could it relate to why I cant connect to live?
Any help, ideas, suggestions would eb appreciated. If its a technical process to follow I bang thru it, I am a socket and wrench kidn of person, not a computer guy so please approach any steps with that knowledge. This is a great communtiy, I look forward to any assistance I can get. In the morning I am going to unplug and replug everything again, try to sign on and check back here for ideas.
