    just recently (over the last 3-4 days) I've been having problems with my xbox and I'm not sure if it's a problem with the actual console, game or controller.

    The problem is that when I'm in a screen with a menu it starts scrolling by itself....and while I'm playing Madden and I'm on the line of scrimmage my guy will start moving sideways (always to the right), in Top Spin tennis my guy is always moving forward and sometimes won't move backwards.

    Oh and sometimes it won't let me use the "A" button in madden when I'm selecting a play (only happened in Madden though).

    At first I thought for sure it was the controller because one of the two I have I bought used but I tried switching controllers to the one that came with the xbox and the same shit happens. Anyone else have this problem and know how I can fix it?

    Thanks.

    have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back up. on the playstation 2 sometimes the analog sticks lock up and you have to unplug the controller and don't touch the analogs at all and then plug it back in. i'm not sure though that's what is sounds like atleast to me.

    Yeah I've tried unplugging and switching the controllers around but it still has the same problem. Maybe I'll buy another controller and see if it changes anything.

    I bought a new controller and for awhile the problem seemed to go away but now it's back again.

    I'll try your idea Graphx, thanks.
