Re: Xbox 360 Freeze!!

It's a common fault with X boxes, the red lights indicate overheating, so make sure it is well ventillated and if neccasary you can purchase an add on cooler for the system.

Fallout 3 xbox 360 freeze

If your playing on a disk clean the disk with clean cotton or a clean cotton clothe and the disk reader with a vacuum with brush head. Installing it on a hard disk would also sometimes prevent the game from frequently freezing. Freezing randomly or at a certain scene is a glitch on the game. Hopefully it will be patched soon.

Xbox will freeze at the dashboard

Most likely a hardware problem. If that's the case then you're probably going to need to get it repaired.

Freezes and stops

If the 360 was ON when it fell or recently turned off then there might be a chance that the GPU connections were softened from the heat of being used. If this is the case set the 360 on its side, as in horizontally and turn it on for around 30 minutes and then turn it off and let it cool down for 30 minutes. This should warm up the GPU connections and then cool them down in the proper positions.

It's best if you leave the 360 on it's side then vertically.

Xbox 360 freezing

There are two possible solutions to this issue. One the data that you downloaded either got corrupted during transfer somehow or during a resent save. You should delete all the iformation off your hard drive and start fresh. If this doesnt work try takeing off your hard drive and playing a game if it deosnt freeze you will need to either try the delete method or get a new HD.

If this doesnt solve your issue then it is very possible that your system is headed for the red rings of death. My system was fried after i had played assasins creed. It would freeze up and create this checker pattern on my back ground my system shortly after went red ring.
