Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a hot gaming session on your Xbox One suddenly your game slows down, or things freeze up when there were no problems before? Some people have also reported problems loading the game where you keep seeing the loading screen of the game but it doesn’t actually load.
The problem may be with the cache on your console, so before you try to reinstall the game or send your console in for repair, try clearing the cache. If your game is slowdown, freezing, or unable to load, it’s a simple how-to to save you some trouble. Unlike the Xbox 360, the Xbox One doesn’t have a menu option to clear the cache on your console. However, clearing the cache is really simple and you just need to follow a few steps.
You can try and follow two methods. The first step is a single step, and it may be the fastest way to solve your problem. The first method is to just hold down the power button for 10 seconds, which will reset the console. If that doesn’t work, you can try the slightly longer method.
- Firstly, press and hold the Power button on the console until it turns off completely.
- Unplug the power cable from the back of the console.
- Now you have to make sure that the Xbox One battery has exhausted any remaining power, so wait two minutes and then press the power button four times.
- Plug the power cable back into the console.
- Wait for the light on the power brick to change from white to orange.
- Turn on the console by using the Power button.
This does a cold restart of the console, clearing the cache. This should solve most of the issues related to game performance.
