If this is permanent ie doesnt go away when you leave the xbox to cool down and restart it then:

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but that is likely to be a failure in the graphics chip, and its usually terminal.
What will happen next is the red ring of doom.

If your xbox is <2yrs old then micro$oft will repair it free of charge (presumably on proof of purchase?) otherwise...

There is a fix for the red ring of doom but what can I say, it's not easy! I have performed this successfully but it took about 4 hours and a lot of hair lost! I have heard that the xbox is never broken from red ring, and I'm inclined to believe that, trying as the fix may be...

My Xbox 360 is fuzzy and has green dots all over the screen


I doubt it's the 360 since everything else is working just fine. The menu works fine, the game works fine. However if you downloaded one of these maps from the marketplace it may be corrupt, and you will have to delete and re-download the map pack.

The picture on my t.v when i turn on my ps3 goes black and white with a section of it at the top gone a fuzzy green colour. how do i get rid of this and put colour back on the screen


First of all hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds. YOu should hear a couple of beeps. That is resetting the video to the ps3. Power it back up. If you have it hooked up through hdmi try the other av cordes it came with. ALso try unpluging and plugging back in the av cords. If that does not work then I dont know.

Black screen white dots


This is likely due to Hardware Failure. Your GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) has likely overheated to the extent of artifacting which is when the device begins to have trouble rendering objects and images and crashes constantly. The only viable solution is to send it in if you still have warranty, Otherwise, you'll have to either buy a new Xbox 360 or send it in for repairs from microsoft.

Hope this helps.
