    Ive opened up the xbox after a whole ordeal of sending mine in. I ended up fixing it but then later i found that on start up, the graphics chip (under the intercooler) heats up right when you turn it on. causing the system to say its overheating. still trying to fix this one

    Right as i press the power button it starts t boot normally. Then about 6 seconds into booting up, it's fans start to go faster and faster then I get the red rings. I'm getting them it quadrant 1 and 3. I know that this means overheating. I used a repair kit fromhttp://www.llamma.com/. I have done everything right (I know this because, I have decent skills wit electronics and I'm not dumb). I haven't found an answer this problem yet and need help. Dose anyone know what is wrong?

All of the new games require more work from your graphics card, which without the new heat sync from microsoft, will over heat very quickly. You need to send you xbox to microsoft to have them fix it before you eventually recieve an error code or the 3 red lights or death.

Ok so i have a problem with my xbox 360 slim i recently bought call of duty ghosts and i played it for about a month about two to three hours a night three to five nights a week recently ive tried playing...


Try blasting some compressed air inside near the fan (when the console is off and cool) If not, there is either something lodged pretty good in the fan or the fan is failing. Both would require you or someone to open the 360. Cheap fix though, considering the overheating hasn't taken too much of a toll on the hardware.

Won't read any game discs or dvd's.


First remove your hard drive and try to play a game without it, reattatch your hard drive and see how you get on.
second let your console cool down this happens sometimes when the console overheats.
Third it could be the laser in the dvd drive,if this is the case it will need stripping down and either adjusting or replaceing.
let us know if this solution worked for you.

Xbox 360 halo problems


my halo sometimes does the same thing when i start up the game but pressing a usually gets you through it, but if your xbox 360 overheats within minutes and is an older xbox 360 its usually a burnt out fan or just full of dust, if its old then ur warranty might already be out and if it is just open up the xbox and use an air compressor or anything else to get all the dust out of the xbox. in my case everything was just caked with dust. anyways... good luck

Two overheat rings....but only on Guitar hero world tour.


The system is suffering from overheating which caused the solder under the GPU to loose contact with some of the board. We can fix this for you. We have fixed hundreds with the same problem. We are listed on this site.

Xbox 360


Well thats very hard to do, the problem is that the xbox is overheating, more specific the GPU, thats why it freezes. The easy way would be to open your xbox an leave it that way, I have a xbox that works just when is all open with the parts expose. Very strange but it works. Also put some new thermal compound on your GPU and heatsink.
You could make the room where you play very cold so the xbox will not overheat or put some big fans near the xbox hoping they cool it down. Or stop playing like 15 minutes every 2 hours so it cools.
