it's been suggest my house's grounding might be faulty. Not sure how that can play a factor, necessarily

In short: doubt it. Read on for blathering.

I'd be rather surprised if that was true. You'd be having a lot of other problems -- especially with a PC and any power-sensitive equipment (like a big screen TV, receiver, etc -- not anything with a motor in it though). And if it was really bad then you'd have crap blowing out left and right everytime there was a thunderstorm since the power grid always goes wonky during them.

Oh, and the little electrical tester isn't likely to show you anything unless either the outlet the Xbox360 is plugged into is wired wrong (worth checking) or you have no ground at all on the electrical system (see above; usually caused by the house being grounded to the cold water piping, and then someone did work on the plumbing system and replaced some copper pipe with PVC or CPVC; it's been against code to ground that way for decades though).
