how to fix a xbox 360

RRoD is like a BSoD on Windows. It's a fatal error and a primary code. It doesn't tell you anything at this stage and the code is so generic, if can be anything from the PSU being faulty/not being connected to a specific component fault. You therefore need the Secondary Error Code (google it). If you get anything like 0102, 0020, 0110 then it's extremely possible the problem is with the GPU. Ignore any videos regarding heatguns, towel tricks or clamping / bolting. you'll just make it worse. The solder balls which attach the GPU to the main board need replacing. This is done by special equipment and is a proper fix, unlike the methods mentioned above. In extreme cases, the actual GPU needs to be replaced.

My xbox has 3 flashing red lights on front. What does this mean

It means your system has the dreaded RROD Or Red Ring Of Death,

If you turn the system on and hold the sync button and then hit the eject button, You can find its code you will have to do it 4 times, 1 light means 1 2 lights means 2 3 Means 3 and 4 lights means 0.

You can usually get a code like 0020 0102 and so on, below is a link that will tell you what each error code means,

also look at the back of your system locate the manufacture date, If it's within 3 years of that date don't open the system call microsoft and have them fix it for free.

i did the x clamp fix on my 360 now i have error code 0020

error code 0020 is currently unkown, however it is possibly overheating. and 0021 is caused by a timeout on the dvd drive or a GPU error, try re-heating the chips using a blow dryer on low heat for 10-15mins.
