Why is my Xbox 360 lagging strangely?
Hi. I can deal with regular lag spikes and such(I have a terrible internet connection), but this is something else. It might not even be lag.
Anyway so I wanted to play Cod4 because it wasn't working because my disc drive's laser eye was old and dusty. I opened up my Xbox and cleaned off the dust and cleaned the laser eye with a Q-tip dipped lightly in rubbing alcohol. When I put it back together, it was working fine(at my Dad's house). Then, I took it back to my Mom's where it usually is, and started playing Cod4 and MW2, but I noticed every 5-10 seconds I had a brief lag(for between 100 and 600 milliseconds the screen freezes). The weird part is that, unlike most lag, it happens every. Single. Game. The entire game, every 5 seconds, it lags.
But that's not it. I'm usually a very good player,(1st or 2nd in most games) but ever since I put my Xbox back together, it seems like I'm ALWAYS aiming too much or too little. Literally overnight my very, very good and quick aim was destroyed?? It's beyond frustrating! I use a wireless adapter or whatever for my internet on the xbox. Any suggestions on what I should do? If you need more information just ask.
