Multiplayer Privileges blocked

About a week ago I bought a second hand xbox 360 slim 4gb console along with the games Fable II & Fable III.

Anyway today I bought a 1 month xbox live gold code and activated it on my xbox live account to access the online multiplayer features of Fable III, yet.. when i tried it kept saying: "To access this option, you need to be signed in to Xbox LIVE with an Xbox LIVE Gold Membership. You will not have access if your multiplayer privileges are blocked.".

So i restarted the console to see if that would help.. it didn't.


I logged into my xbox live account at live.xbox.com and i noticed a yellow box with a warning saying something like "Membership expired" from when I used my profile when I had a 360 last year so I paid for yet another months membership to make it go away. So I've bought TWO 1 month xbox live gold memberships and I'm still getting that "multiplayer privileges are blocked" bullcrap.


Any suggestions?

also the parental control settings are turned off.

Did you accidently use the code on the account you're posting with now? As it's showing up as a Gold subscription.
