Begin by powering down your Xbox Series X or S console. To do so, press and hold the Xbox button on the front of the console for at least 10 seconds until the power light stops flashing.
Once your console has been powered down, disconnect all cables from the back of the console. This includes power, HDMI, and any other cables that are connected to the console.
Now, press and hold the Xbox button and the Bind button for 8 seconds until the Xbox logo on the front of the console starts to flash.
Connect a controller to your console using a USB cable. This will allow you to navigate the setup menus.
On the controller, press the Xbox button to turn it on.
When the controller is turned on, select the “Settings” option.
From the Settings menu, select “System”.
In the System tab, select “Console Info & Updates”.
Select “Reset Console”.
Select “Reset and Remove Everything”.
Confirm the reset by selecting “Yes”.
The console will now start to reset. This process may take up to an hour depending on the amount of data that needs to be erased.
When the reset is complete, the console will restart and you will be prompted to go through the setup process.
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup process.
Once the setup is complete, your Xbox Series X or S console will be in its factory state and ready to be used. You will notice improved performance, as the reset has removed any unnecessary data that could be affecting the console’s performance.
