If your system is under warranty, I would try and get it RMA'd. If not there are plenty of services out there that offer xbox 360 repair for 50-70 dollars. I have used this one before when my system got the red ring of death.

Fast turn around and my xbox360 has been working like a champ for over a year now.

Screen freezing - Not loading


HI, this will occur when there is a serious hard disk error. you can confirm by unplugging the unit for 5 minutes. this will reset the error reporting. once the five minutes are up, simply plug the unit back up and power the unit. you should get an error code or explanation.

Contact Sony for this repair.

Won't work


That's a fairly good sign of a system over heating. Will the system sit in dashboard for a long time but go out during a game? If so you should see about setting up a cooling system(but avoid the intercoolers at all cost, they break more systems than they help.) Or if you are still under warranty, send it in to Microsoft(1-800-4MY-XBOX) because it will not take long for it to red ring on you.
