When ever I try to play a video either on the web or in world during second life, all it will do is just keep loading if once in awhile it does start then it will just keep playing the first part of the video over and over again but most of the time it never loads

It sounds like you are having an issue with Flash Player which is the default player in SL..
Try uninstalling Flashplayer and then re-installing from scratch. Also, make sure you have updated Flashplayer and that you are also using the up to date version of whichever viewer you are using.
If you are using viewer 2, there is an update available which you can get from or by logging in and clicking on the update window which appears as part of the login screen.
If you are using a third party viewer or a third party browser, make sure it is fully updated and supported by Flashplayer.
Lastly, if the video seems to play the first ten seconds or so of the video, you mayhave your player set to review mode. Check in the help files of your viewer or browser to reset this option back to full play.
If you are still having issues, try installing a different SL viewer like Snowglobe or Phoenix etc as you may be suffering from a conflict with the flashplayer software and your video hardware.
Some web cams can also cause a conflict so make sure your webcam (if connected) is disconnected..

I have linksys 54g v8 and i am haviing a issue connecting to second life

That may be a game issue. It's a on-line game, right? Does the computer lose a signal? Once the connection is out in the cyber world, anything could disconnect you. Have you tried the games support? I don't think it's your equipment. If your devices stay connected to internet, in general, then it would be second life.

When i am playing the game "PURE". during the middle of playing the world tour option it loads for half a second and just quit loading (it will show the atv but wont go on to the race)

check if your computer has met the minimum requirements of the game. if so, try updating your operating system, the game, and your video card.

My XBox 360 freezes

Well if these spot are consistent on certain disks time after time it is most likely a scratch, smudge or defect on the disk. check them all for scratches and if they are dirty try to clean them very gently with a soft cloth. This would only really concern your actual console if it occurs during heavy game loading or at the same spot during a load. Try cleaning all your disks and get back to me. GL
