Hmmmm, how do I hard reset? I haven't done it before
Its pretty much just another way of saying powercycling, cold reboot etc. Hold the power button in for a good 10 seconds or so until it turns off. Turn it back on and you should get the green loading screen and not the one that you see when it comes back from a regular shutdown or hibernation.
That or I think you can go to settings --> system --> restart. This seems to be fixing the issues that people are having regarding connecting to XBL.
*EDIT* Looks like you are all set. Nice!
XBL- cheezedadada PSN- cheezedadadada PC, Xbox One, PS4 and handhelds. Yay for options.
