Re: Red Ring Of Death
When someone say that his/her Xbox is having red ring of death
problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than
it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before
acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will
have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's
warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to
wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your
Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge. .
It could be the cables or it could be that your 360 has an error and their may be a chance that it may have to do inside you 360 with the processor or the mother board it self also check if it is hot in the back it could be overheating (not rrod) if so leave it off between 2-4 hours.

This is known as the 'red ring of death' It is likely that you will need to send in your Xbox to Microsoft for repair. It is possible that you are still covered under warranty. Does the E74 error message appear? See here http://bit.ly/56NTkB
Alternatively Microsoft recommends trying a different set of Audio Video cables.Source http://bit.ly/6eWcLD
you have the "Red Ring of Death" this is a problem the 360 have encoutered over the years, Mainly with the first 500,000 that were sold. To solve the (RRD) "Red Ring of Death" you can do what they call, "The towel trick" where you take a couple towels and wrap the 360 in it while it is on, After you do so with 4-5 towels you allow the 360 to over heat causing it to shut off. After you let it cool-down. You can turn it on and will fix the ring temporarlly! You can send the 360 in to microsoft for free if you are having this problem, It was included in the warrnety.. So if you do mail it to microsoft then you will be without gaming for 4-6 weeks. But will have returned a full functioning non-ring of death. :o) hope this helped!
sorry bud thats the red ring of death better go buy a new one or if the warranty is good send it in -- if it was 3 red ring of death and its a newer 360 then your pretty much good they fixed the newer ones of the 3 problem but 4 god damn good luck with that
That has absolutely nothing to do with the Hard drive. The red ring of death is a standard misfunction with the Xbox 360. You will have to contact your local game stores to see if they do Red ring of death fixes, send it in to microsoft, or attempt to red ring fix it yourself.
