sounds to me like the system has been damaged due to over heating. What happens is the Graphics and Central processing unit get extremely hot causing the motherboard to warp breaking the connection on the lead free solder. But here are a few thing you can try, Make sure Power supply is getting good air flow and vents are clear of dust, Make sure the Console is also getting good air flow and not sitting on carpet or in closed in area may want to blow system/power supply out with a can of air, make sure the fans are working properly. easiest way to fix this problem is to send it in to microsoft and get it repaired.

My xbox turns on an as soon as the xbox 360 logo goes on screen it freezes its berly a 2 month old xbox

Are you getting the 'red ring of death' (the red ring that lights up around the power button)?
This could be either a problem with your television set, or more than likely an issue with the Xbox's harddrive.

I just purchased COD4-2 and while playing the game on my xbox elite, it freezes. I thought that it might be the game, but tried another one and the same thing happened. How do I fix this problem. there is...

Sounds like your console is over heating. Take an air pressure can that you can purchase at a local store (RadioShack, Home Depot, Office Max/Depot) Spray the vents to clear out the dust. Do this outside.

Make sure to clean it as best you can with the air pressure can, you need to get all of the dust out of there.

This can also be a warning sign that your console might soon red ring so be careful. Also make sure you got some free hard drive space?

My elite has works but the video doesnt, even with light on cable

turns out after a bit of fiddling around that there is a switch on the 360 elite's VGA cable that you can switch on and off, i never knew they had these switches because it is my first tme with an elite, machine works fine though so far no freezes or glitches and im playing fallout 3. anyway for allthose that cant get video because of the cord or something make sure you check your VGA TV/HDTV switch, as i missed it too.

Xbox freezes at sign in every time /no ring of death

well you can try downloading all of the info from your xbox to a couple of the microsoft flash drives. but you said that the autosign in was seeming to make it freeze. if you have the chance, make it so the xbox DOESNT auto sign in. ive heard of a thing that you can get done to your harddrive that transfers ALL of the data from one drive to the next. call microsoft customer service and ask about it. if they arent aware of it, you can try deleting some things off the hard drive because it might be full.

Freezing up

Try removing your harddrive to see it that's what is causing the problems. Games should play fine without harddrive, but no save, of course. It it works without HD you may need to replace yours.
