I've had my 360 since Christmas and I have never had any problems. I've read alot about the 3 red light problem, and it sounds like the problem I have, except there are no red lights.
I start to play a game, and can play fine for 15 to 20 minutes, then it freezes up and I have to reset the 360. Then this will happen again. I get no red lights flashing on the front of the console, which is why this seems strange.
This only happens if I play a game, if I am on the 360 dashboard, I can leave it all day and the screen wont freeze. I've tried multiple games and different TV's, (including a brand new one that definetly supports PAL60) and I still get this problem. Has anyone heard of this before? and are there ways to fix it?
Any help is much appreciated.

This is the begining of the 3 red rings of death. If it's under warranty with microsoft send it in for repair, if not, you can attempt the xclamp replacement mod or go on ebay and look for someone with a reflow station to reflow your GPU on your xbox motherboard.
Red ring is not the only problem with Microsoft Xbox 360. This amazing
device also has some more common problems like Audio , video/Picture
problem, disc read error etc. Microsoft is providing extended warranty
only for red ring problem. Means you will have to spend some money to
get this problem repaired also if you plan to send your xbox to
Microsoft, you will have to wait for 3-4 weeks to get back your
favourite Xbox. There is one more option in the form of DIY guide, this guide explains solving No Video problem with step by step instruction, so any novice can fix this problem.
if its 3 red rings then you need to cal customer support at 1-800-4myxbox to see if your still under warrenty and if you are you get a new xbox. if you arent under warrenty you can open your xbox which will void your warrenty if you have one. and you can repair it yourself which is risky if you do not know alot about system parts
