    I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions to fix my Xbox account as it seems to have stopped giving any achievements. I think this has been going on over a month now, not that I've played it much in that time.

    Microsoft themselves have been pretty ineffective thus far, basically linking me to the same support pages and forum posts.

    I've tried the following so far:

    - Turn it off and on again!
    - Connection is fine.
    - Remove + Re-add profile on Xbox One
    - Reset Xbox One to factory settings (suggested by MS support)
    - Logged back into Xbox 360, then removed and re-add the profile there.
    - Remove + Re-add profile on Xbox One again!
    - Tried a completely new game and got to the point for an achievement.

    The game history does update on xbox.com on the achievements page, so it is updating something.

    So, any ideas?

    Make sure the Notifications Option in the dashboard is turned on! You are earning achievements just not displaying them which is usually when something has become disabled.

    Alas no, I have checked. They aren't working at all.

    I have had a couple of games that I have played through and received nothing whilst playing then a few weeks later if I check again they are all showing.
