I have an 250gb xbox slim that I purchased 2 years ago. I have noticed some weird occurances before such as, when playing l4d2 online with a friend there were certain houses and trees that had a multicolored checkerboard pattern instead of their normal coloring. I have also noticed that it has taken slightly longer to start up my system and get to the dashboard then it previously did. Nothing to major. Maybe 30 sec to bring it up when it use to take 20sec. Also I have been hearing what sounds like a clicking sound through my tv speakers but I think that is un related as it is coming from the tv speakers when I am at the xbox dashboard and not the xbox itslef.
All that I have basically casr off as random events that mean nothing, but now I am wondering. With my purchase of gta 5 and after installing the install disk to my hdd I have realized some major problems that others seem not to have. When evr I am driving at a high rate of speed I get a lot of pop ins and have even had cars pop in directly in front of me. Last night I had an event which finaaly made me start my journey for a solution. I was getting chased by cops and driving very fast. I came to a bridge that became untextered and then my car sank into the bridge up to the doors. I have also noticed a lot of bodies just dissapearing when ever I turn my back on them.
I am thinking it might be hdd related but I really have no idea. I put in a 8 gb flash drive and removed the hdd from the slim and it started up quicker than it ever had but (with my limited computer knowledge) I am guessing that is because I went from having about 100gb of information on there to having 0. I was unable to dl the install disk of gta and test it out because my 8gb flash drive actually has only 7.56gb.....
What does this sound like? What should I do? Sorry for just throwing symptoms out but I really have no idea about tthis.
Thank you in advance
