Ok. Wtf is going on.
First of all, I only have a silver account. I only want to get on to get system updates. When I try to log on to xbox live with my account I get a message that says "your parent's windows live ID isn't valid"
Let me say at this point that I am 21 years old, and my gamertag/windows live account has my correct birthdate. And that this is the only account which has ever been on xbox live so I really don't know how it could have a "parent's" account associated with it...
So I go along with this thing and enter my window's live account email and password and give it a different email to change it to. Then I give it a new password. Everything works fine and I come to a verify information page. The only thing left to do is click "continue".
Already celebrating my mental victory over this demon box, I eagerly press the A button with all my strength. Nothing happens. The button reacts and makes a nice little "hey you pressed it" noise. But the screen does nothing. I am stuck.
Does anyone else have this problem? Am I going insane?
I have since gone online and changed all my passwords. Messed with all my settings on the xbox site and the windows live ID site. Nowhere on either does it say I have a parent's account.
