Xbox 360 keeps freezing on all the games

We just purchased the 360 but it keeps freezing only after 5 minutes of play so we know it is not hot we also have a fan on it but still it does not work properly. I have tried unplugging everything and waiting but still having problems even with the demo games. Can you help?

    Merry Christmas! Just out of the box this morning. I've tried 4 different games and ALL have frozen within 15 minutes. No red lights and no warning msgs. Three froze and one (NCAA Football 07) filled screen with orange and black stripes.

    I am also having problems with my 1 day old Chritmas present. Mine makes a wierd clicking noise, by the hard drive, when it is trying to "think" (this is with no game disc in it yet). It freezes up when I try to access XBOX live and takes a long time to process any of the requests I make. I removed the hard drive and tried to play games without it. I can play GOW2 for a little while and then the disc unreadable error pops up. I'm pretty sure my problems are related to the hard drive, but any information people have would be appreciated. Thank you!

Madden 09 keeps freezing on my new xbox 360


I have the same problem with most of the EA sports games, and here's the solution. Stop buying these $60 drink coasters that EA has the balls to keep dishing out to us, and they'll either go under, or spend some time on their turds for a change. Some of the things that happen in their sports titles make me wonder if the French-Canadian A-holes have ever even seen a game or a race, for that matter. Anyway, the only way to stop the freezing is to do what I do.....throw them in the trash where they belong, and stop purchasing them.

My 360 keeps freezing


No red lights? Do you have your system properly vented? If you own an older system you may want to consider purchasing a cooling fan. Also some games are known to have a freezing glitch "Ex: Rainbow 6 vegas 1" If the games are freezing all the time after just 10 minutes that sounds like something you may want to contact Microsoft about repairing

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.
