My Xbox 360 Slim is VERY Slow

And i mean slow.

It takes a long time for it to start up on the dahsboard, and load the content.

When i want to watch my achievements, it takes forever to load it, and when i start stuff up, like i want to go to the games tab, it loads for minutes.

And now it freezes completely and takes several minutes to start Kinect Fun Lab.

My brother got a Slim Xbox, and it runs smoothly.

What can i do, and what might be wrong with my Slim?

EDIT: Now it froze accessing Kinect Fun Lab.

EDIT 2: Ok, so i read that the Kinect Fun Lab thing is broken, so that has nothing to do with my Xbox, or maybe i am just unlucky. My brothers Kinect Fun Lab works though.

The obvious answer would be to return it, if it's still in warranty

Indeed, but i was hoping that someone had a magical solution or a logic explanation. don't feel like returning it, and stuff if there is a good reason behind it. Can't see how a Xbox can be slow compared to other consoles.

It can be slow because it's broken. Send it back, get it repaired. Simple.

i have an xbox 360 slim as well and i have seen it struggle with processing the gameplay of smackdown vs. raw 2011 because there has been so much going on at one time.

We were having the same problems.

My husband and I were having the same problem. It was a very simple fix for us. We unpluged everything, and opened up the bottom of the xbox and pulled the hard drive out. Then we put it back in and everything seems to be going much faster now! Not sure what was up with that but it worked for us.

I don't know about you, but I save all of my games to my Xbox. Atleast the ones I'm working on playing right now. Just makes me feel safer about it because I know the Xbox s sketchy sometimes.

Our 360's not going that slow, but it's kind of noticable when playing games like Halo. But, we have a lot of stuff on it. We transferred data from our old 360 when we got it, plus we have a lot of people come over and play, plus my dad gets Gamefly so we try new games out on it often.

Could any of it be the amount of memory is on the 360, and if so, would deleting a few things, or maybe clearing the cache help it run any faster?

I don't know if that could be even part of the problem for the OP since his is running even slower, but I was searching for help, and this came up, so if an answer would help us both, it'd be good.

You have a year warranty under M$ + any warranty purchased from the retailer (Gamestop has various optional warrantys). If you think it should be working faster/better, let em know.
