This tutorial is written for those of you out there who are diehard Xbox 360 fans, but cannot play all of the games you love because your parents or your older brother has put a “Parental Control” code on your console. Very inconvenient right? Wrong. Read below to find out how you can reset this password in just seconds, using nothing but your Xbox 360 controller.

The first thing you must do is go to the “Settings” page on your Xbox 360 console.

 

Once you have opened the Xbox 360 console’s “Settings” menu, you must select the “Parental Controls” option. Once you have selected the “Parental Controls” option, you must then access the “Pass code Screen”.

 

Now that you are at the “Pass code Screen” you must press (relatively hard) for a brief period of time (~500ms) and then promptly release the buttons on the Xbox 360 controller, just as you would enter a cheat code into a game such as; “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas,” in the combination shown below:

X + Y + L + X

 

There is a certain trick to entering this code time perfectly, but once you get it the Xbox 360 console will reset the “Parental Controls” pass code back to the default code (the code that was originally on your console at the time you bought it).

 

Note: Like every console trick, it is not guaranteed to work on your specific console, due to model variations. Also, this is just one of the combinations that supposedly works. Although, if it does not work for you then stay on the same screen and enter as many random combinations of buttons on the controller as you possibly can, you are bound to break it eventually. Good luck.

 

Now, assuming that the above method has worked for you and your console, enjoy your hard earned playtime on all your favourite games.

It’s done, all you have left to do now is enjoy your games. Enjoy your newfound Xbox 360 password resetting knowledge.

This tutorial is aimed at all Xbox 360 users who would like to choose a unique name for their Xbox 360 console to show off to their friends. Read below to find out how you can use an Easter Egg to allow you one opportunity to permanently change the name of your Xbox 360 console.

This tutorial requires that you can get your hands on a copy of the Xbox 360 game “Dead Or Alive 3” for long enough to complete a task.

 

In case you do not understand what I mean exactly, by the term “How to change the name of your Xbox 360 console”, I will explain it to you. The term refers to the name of your Xbox 360 console shown online (not your Live ID but your name). This “name” will appear as your console name in games such as Halo. By changing this from the default serial-like name, you will stand out from the crowd and have a great bragging right over your buddies!

 

Now, I will continue my tutorial assuming you have acquired a copy of the game “Dead Or Alive 3”. The first thing you must do is power on your console and insert the “Dead Or Alive 3” game disc into the console.

 

Once you have inserted the disc, boot up the game. If you are new to this game, then it is recommended that you read a separate walkthrough, off a game site for instance. Once you have booted up the game, you must play “challenge mode” until you have completed the entire “challenge mode”.

 

When you complete “challenge” mode, you will be prompted to enter a name. Once you enter the desired name, the name of your Xbox 360 console will now be named according to what you entered in the “Record” box.

 

So, once you have entered the desired name into the box you are prompted with at the end of “challenge” mode and hit accept, your Xbox 360 console will now bee seen in games like Halo as the new name you have given your console.

 

If you would like to view your console’s new name then load up Halo and enter the “Multiplayer” mode. Once you have entered the “Multiplayer” mode, you must select “Split Screen” and then the appropriate “Profile” and “Location” settings. After you have selected the appropriate options, you will be presented with a screen saying “Waiting for more players”, just as you usually would. Now you will notice that there is a picture of your Xbox 360 console above your profile name, above the picture of your console will be a word. This word will be used from now on, every time your Xbox 360 console goes online.

 

Note: This may not always work, it depends entirely on the model of your console as well as many other factors. So if it does not work for you don’t worry, you are just unlucky. Good Luck.

That’s it! You now have something to brad to your buddies about and to show off the next time you play online with certain games Enjoy your newfound Xbox modification knowledge.

This tutorial will explain to any Xbox 360 user how they can play not only CD-R audio CDs but also CD-RW audio CDs on their console. Read below to find out how you can allow your stock standard Xbox 360 console to play virtually any type of audio CD.

This is a very easy way to save on buying a CD that you already own but are unable to play on your Xbox 360, due to it being damaged, etc. In this simple process you will be able to backup your original CD to any type of CD and play it back in the media player on your Xbox 360 console.

Once you have dragged all of your favourite songs into the right pane be sure to check that it will all fit on one CD (maximum of 80 minutes of songs).

 

Once you are sure that all of your music in the right pane adds up to less than 80 minutes, you must click the “Start Burn” at the bottom of the right pane. This will begin the disc burning process.

 

Note: If you are prompted at any point to choose either a “Live” or a “Mastered” CD type, be sure to select “Mastered” as it will enable you to play it on your Xbox 360 console.

 

Once the burning process has completed your disc will eject. Take your disc from the drive and insert it into your Xbox 360 console. If necessary, restart the Xbox 360 console.

– A computer running Windows XP or above

– A Nintendo Wi-Fi USB adapter for PC (With the installation CD)

Once you have installed the drivers for the Nintendo Wi-Fi adapter on your PC you must restart your computer. While the computer is restarting, you can power on your Wii console and boot it to the “Main Menu”.

 

Now that your computer has restarted and your Wii is at the “Main Menu”, you can click the “Wii” button at the bottom left of the screen (a little white button with blue text saying “Wii”). Once you have clicked the button you must enter the “System Settings” button and then scroll left or right, until you find the “Internet” box. Click the “Internet” box and then select “Connection Settings”. After you have clicked the “Connection Settings” button you can select “Connection 1”, “Connection 2” or “Connection 3” and then find your Nintendo Wi-Fi USB and select the Wi-Fi USB and then enter your connection settings.

This guide is written to explain how to use the Nintendo LAN USB to share an internet connection between the Wii console and a LAN network with an active internet connection.

The first thing you are going to need to do is make sure that you have the items in the list below:

– A Nintendo LAN USB adapter

– An Ethernet cable

 

The first thing you will need to do to create a successful internet connection on your Nintendo Wii console by using the Nintendo LAN USB adapter is insert the LAN USB adapter into one of the USB ports on the back of the Wii console.

 

Now that you have inserted the LAN USB into one of the USB ports on your Wii console you can then attach one end of your Ethernet cable to the adapter and attach the other end to your modem or router you must power on your Wii console and then, 15 seconds later turn on your modem/router.

Clicking ok will start the “Connection Test”, which will test your connection and then automatically connect you to the network permanently, unless you delete the network connection.

This guide is written keeping in mind the underestimation of the wireless network connectivity options provided by the Nintendo Wii, which are commonly being left unnoticed by many users of the console. Read below to find out how you can use the brilliant machine for your web activity just as you would with any computer as well as online gaming, assuming you are playing a Nintendo Wi-Fi compatible game.

The method I am about to explain to you will show you how to configure your Nintendo Wii gaming console to connect to and use a wireless access point in your house. The wireless access point, in case you are new to the concept of online gaming or wireless networking, is the point of which your gaming console connects to the internet.

 

The first thing you are going to have to do is power on your Wii console and allow it to boot up to the main menu. To allow the system to boot you can power it on and wait approximately one minute for the “Warning” screen to automatically disappear and bring the main menu to your screen, or you can just press the “A” button at the top of your Wiimote/Wii controller.

 

Once the main menu is visible on your screen you must move the pointer (which is a hand on your screen that moves when you point your Wii remote around the screen) to the small “Wii” button at the bottom left of your screen, which should be white with blue text saying “Wii”.

 

Once you have moved your pointer over the button you can then press the “A” button on your Wii controller to enter the “Wii Menu”.

 

Now that you are in the “Wii Menu” you can begin to set up your wireless network connection. To enter the configuration for the wireless settings you must move your pointer over the “Wii Settings” box on the right side of the screen and then press the “A” button on your Wii remote.

 

You will now notice that your screen contains various options for you to tweak, the option you need to find is the “Internet” options. Use the left and right arrows to navigate throughout the options.

 

Once you have entered the “Internet” options you must select the “Connection Settings” tab.

 

Now that you have brought up the “Connection Settings” tab you can begin to enter your new connection. To enter your new connection you must move your pointer onto “Connection 1”, “Connection 2” or “Connection 3” and then press the “A” button on your Wii remote.

 

Now, the final step. You must now enter the Settings for your access point by choosing the appropriate access point (this will be the name of your home router or your home network name) and then entering the password and security type of your Wireless network.

This guide is for an Xbox 360 player who is a common traveler and enjoys bringing his console with him and connecting it to different types of displays.

This process takes less than 20 seconds and will indefinitely save you hours of frustration. Read below to find out how easy it is to reset your Xbox 360’s video settings.

Once you have powered off your Xbox 360 console and have acquired a suitable controller, it is time to reset those pesky settings. To reset your settings you need to follow the steps below in the order below:

 

1) Boot the Xbox 360 with your Xbox 360 controller

3) As soon as you begin holding down the “Y” button, hold down the “Right-Trigger”
