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!

    xbox freezes when playing games and sometimes when the xbox logo is appearing while the xbox boots up. it never freezes when i first start playing a game. I beat ninja gaiden 2 4times, too human got 20 hours of game play (with breaks inbetween of course), fallout 3 beat the whole game, each game had no problems, til after the games were already played vigously, now each of these games (these are just a few examples) freeze after about a single hour of gameplay, sometimes not even lasting 10 mins

Xbox Freezing On all games


I dont know why it is happening, but the same happened to me. This kept happening until i got the red ring of death. No matter what, the red ring is covered by warranty as long as it isnt opened up.

Xbox 360 freezing during game play


Oh Wow, I am sorry to hear That dude. That has happened to me twice and i have heard to send it in to Cheap - O - Soft(Microsoft) to have it Fixed. What has happened to your Xbox is that it has Overheated, and now the CPU's ( Central processing units) Have broken off their sockets. What happens with the 360 is that when it gets so hot, the motherboard begins flexing against the CPU's, and their restraints called the X- clamps( The things that lock the CPU) and then the CPU breaks off. So your xbox keeps freezing Beacuse of that.
One thing you can do is to send it in to microsoft to have it repaired. just call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and then follow the instructions. But this only works if your xbox is under warranty.
If you are someone that is technically capable, you can open up your Xbox and fix it using this giude. It seems to have worked for many people and they have been glitch free for months. Here is the Link http://www.instructables.com/id/Fix-the-Red-Ring-of-Deathwithout-towels/ . Just follow this and repair your Xbox once and for all. However, that is only if you know and are sure that you are capable of working with delicate electronics. And i heavily reccomend that if your Xbox is still under warranty, that you send it in to them and have it reapaired. Takes about two weeks and is free. Ok then notify me if that works

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.

Check back of game for any scratches check center ring and make sure it looks like your other xbox 360 games and if everything seems ok you have 2 options

1. Take it back for a different copy the one you have may be current.
2. Download to hard drive it reduces load timesand freezings

Libary> Click on NFS with game in cd tray > choose download to hard drive..

It takes only 10 mins.

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

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.
