I had trouble with my 360 locking up without red ringing. To solve the problem I purchased an InterCooler to put on the back and it hasn't locked up since. I hope this helps.

My sons xbox 360 has 3 red lights flashing and it keeps crashing?

If you are getting the 3 red lights I will tell you why it happens and how you can fix it.

The 3 red lights happens because the GPU and the CPU overheat and as this happens the soldering snaps off. you may get a few freeze ups when this happens.

Eventually though you get the 3 red lights and you need to find a way to get it fixed.

You can do this by sending it in and they will repair it for you.

This will take about 4 weeks to get it fixed however.

The other way you can fix it is by repairing it yourself and this means that you can get the job done in under an hour.

There is a list of the best Xbox 360 Repair guides HERE.

I hope this helps and if so please rate it so it can help others.
