However, you may address firmware glitches and OS corruption scenarios. Here is a brief list of solutions that appear to be working for the 0x90010108 error, so don’t postpone applying them.

We have worked for the past 6 months on building a new review system on how we produce content. Using it, we have subsequently redone most of our articles to provide actual hands-on expertise on the guides we made.

For more details you can read how we test, review, and rate at WindowsReport.

Press and hold the Power button on your console for about 8-10 seconds while the system is on. Do so until the console shuts off. Then, you may hit the same button again and it will start and display the green start-up screen.

This process never erases any of your games or data, so there’s nothing to worry about. If the manual button reboot doesn’t work for any reason, then you may also power cycle it the old-fashioned way.

Quickly power down the console, unplug it, wait for at least 10 seconds, plug everything back in and power it back on. Just cross your fingers and hope the error code 0x90010108 goes away!

2. Hard reset your console
