Well thats bad news. This is the beginning of the dreded Red Rings of Death. Thats Microsoft for ya. The only thing I suggest is don't play your console for more than 3 hours.

When i play a game on my xbox 360 the screen will freeze at a random time, sometimes half way through the game, sometimes when i turn the xbox on, sometimes when the game is loading. it makes a strange...


This is a problem with the gpu (graphics chip) the console will need stripping down and new thermal paste applied or the motherboard needs re-balling. sorry but there is no real quick fix for this.
Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 Freezing during netflix and dvd playback


If you are using a HDMI connection, often the connection will be lost between your xbox and your tv. In my case I simply change to another channel or the other HDMI channel and then back and the secure HDMI connection will be restored.

A few unreadable disc errors, some freezing, then no picture.


Rats. Sorry to hear that. If your Xbox360 is still under warranty then you can call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and arrange to have it fixed.

This is a common problem and some people even choose to replace the DVD drive to reduce the noise while the console is operating.

Here's a link to help identify what drive you have in your console now: http://llamma.com/xbox360/Xbox_360_DVD_Drive_Comparison.htm

360 Freezes during gameplay


try to keep the box in a spot where it and the power brick can stay cool.... same thing happened to my first box eventually it got the rings of death like so many other xboxs out there... so if keeping it well aired dont work you need to ring micro soft and have it sent off for repairs before it suffers a system failure
