Hi there. The xbox 360 suffers from overheating, and different symptoms can be seen after the board has 'warped', from overheating. Basically, the video processor chip and/of the video memory chips gets disconnected from the main board from overheating. The behavior of the console can be many things, from the '3 Rings of Death' which consists of the console not even starting up with the 3 front lights flashing, to occasional freezing, lockups, video artifacts and lines. You might notice a difference in the console's behavior depending on the actual temperature of it. If it freezes on each startup, even on a 'cold' boot, the board is probably bad enough now. If you're really out of luck with getting MS to replace it, you might try the 'towel' method. It's still better than using the xbox as a doorstop. I won't be describing this technique here as it's a bit weird, but you can find it on xbox-scene.com forums, searching for 'towel' might get you some tutorial on it. It basically consists of blocking both the air intake and exhaust of the console, which makes the internal temperature so high it actually 'reflows' the connection between the graphics processor and the board. That worked for a few guys it seems, but it's far from a 'by the book' technique, to say the least. :) Hope that helps, cheebster.

For the x box 360,after creating football team can not enter code


NBA 2K7 for XBox 360 utilizes the Xbox's multi-analog stick controller, allowing you to use one of the sticks to shoot and dunk. A fancy dunk is a special move. It could be a twirl in the middle of the dunk or some another type of motion; it depends on the player. Players who have the ability to fancy dunk have different types. It's important to note that not all players can fancy dunk---it depends on their dunk rating.

Nba live 09 freezing up


ya i happens to me also..i figured that
It seems like something with EA sports games make them highly vulnerable to freezing. It does that with FIFA, NHL, and Madden as well from what I hear (already froze on me once on FIFA). It could be that these games are too demanding in information processing and too graphic intensive, or whatever, but it's probably not the system. For example, I've played many games for over 40 hours now, sometimes playing hours on at a time, and it hasn't froze or glitched on me even once...
