Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

3 RED LIGHTS ON LED

He my XBOX is freezing during game play. Most recently (today) i tried to turn it on and the 3 RED LIGHTS ON LED around the ON/OFF button have come on and for some reason the XBOX does not complete the turning on process.
So at the moment my XBOX 360 is useless.
I have done a bit of research on google which states that a lot of XBOX 360s have had a problem whereby the motherboard over heats and bends or something like that which causes this problem, however i dont know why it would be overheating as i dont use it much.
Please help
Many thanks
Dave

My xbox keeps freezing while playing


If your Xbox keeps on freezing up during games then this is normally the start of the red lights, it happens when the GPU and the CPU lose connection, to fix it you need to send it in or you can use a recomended Xbox 360 Repair guide to fix it.

Game freezes and dots appear on screen


I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!

Game freezes during game play


Your Xbox is probably overheating, it just may not overheat to the point where it red rings. I would suggest red ring fixing it, and post results if you try it.

XBox 360 freezing- Not what you think


Your system is headed for the dreaded red ring w/ three red rings. My system started doing the same thing just before this happend. If you have a service plan with it i would suggest returning it and getting a new one.

I tried all the there little tricks as well deleted everything off my harddrive all that good stuff i think it made mine worse. Cuz after all that i turned it back on and bam three red lights and no picture or sound.
