Hey,
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.

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.

Computer Freezes unless pressure applied


With the laptop turned off, take out the hard drive completely from the laptop and then reseat it back into its slot and make sure its nice and snug.

Then go ahead and turn it on and see it will run without freezing on you and having to apply pressure on the keyboard.

If that doesn't work then disconnect the keyboard and see if it will run smoothly without the keyboard. If it does then you might have a stuck key on the keyboard that is making the unit freeze so you might have to replace the keyboard.

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.

Silver classic ipod 80gb


Turn it of by holding the up and center buttons for about 5 secs. Your ipod keeps freezing probably because heat has warped the harddrive. Open it up and get something like a business card that is thicker than normal paper, fold it in half and place it in between the foam and the harddrive. The added pressure should straigten out your harddrive, making it play normally.
