Does using a hard drive with your xbox live account on it with multiple machines

Hello there, recently I bought a Xbox 360 on ebay; it worked perfectly until I tried to go on Xbox Live with it. It came up with a message saying 'This console is banned' or whatever.

Now the person who sold the console claimed that the company test everything about the Xbox before it is shipped.

So at first I thought it may be modified but then I started to wonder: as I've used that hard drive with the same XBL account on three different machines did Microsoft think I was doing some kind of fraud and ban the console?

I can't find information for this anywhere else. Any advice would be great.

Thanks.

If the message says the console is banned then it means the previous owner did something to get it banned, now you could call up microsoft and maybe they will have a solution to your problem. And be wary of buying things off of ebay.

Microsoft won't unban a console. Beware of ebay, sellers can easily claim they test the functionality of the consoles, but rarely test xbox live.
