Xbox360 freezes up in the same spot every time on a certian game
Well, I was gonna get on Fable 2, I chose continue story, and it brought up the loading screen. While loading it froze up, and my xbox360 went un-responsive, I couldn't bring up my dash board, if I took out the disk it still wouldn't bring up the dash board, even if I put another game in, I couldn't even turn off my xbox 360 with my controller, so I turned it off and back on, and it froze and did the exact same thing, I repeated turning it off and on (and it kept freezing in that spot) and finally I put in Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare, and got on Multiplayer Xbox Live, and it worked fine. So I'm not sure what the problem is, so if someone could please inform me of a solution, or atleast whats wrong and if it can be fixed, I would greatly appreciate it, thanks for reading!

well your dvd rom is going bad i own 7 of them and 5 of them are broke you can buy new dvd roms for them but you have to either flash them or just change the boards in the dvd roms because yours is married to your 360
If you're still under warranty (and the 360 has not been opened) I say send it in for repairs. If it has been opened than it sounds like a heating issue so make sure you put it back together properly and ventilation is moving through the console the way it should. Also make sure the heat sinks are in the correct spots. If you have no clue what I'm saying just google 360 repair guide and check the ventilation in them for reference.
Games freeze for two reasons. Overheating and the hard drive locking up. If you have your games installed, you most likely eliminated the overheating problem.
Since you are not getting Red Ring, it probably isn't overheating. That leaves the hard drive. Turn of the console and unplug it. Remove the hard drive. Now is a good time to clean any dust from the connectors or vents. Reattach and play. Some games like Fable 2, Fallout 3, and others are more prone to freezing when accessing the hard drive that others. If it is freezing more times than not, you have an issue with the hard drive.
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
fable too wont work for me and i dont know why about that . try taking your xbox apart by looking it up at www.youtube.com it will bring you through the steps and it should be working. if not buy a new xbox wo hard drive.
I got this for my son for christmas along with a xbox 360 60gig. Before he could play the game, it said that the system needed to be updated in order to play fable II. Have you tried updating the system?
