Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

Xbox 360 is frequently freezing during game play.

While the console itself is working fine with the whole "new xbox experience" and the netflix application there are problems when playing games.  When there is a game in the system it is spinning, but the box is super noisey and it will usually lock up and need to be restarted about every 20-30 minutes of game play.  I cannot restart the system using the controller, I have to manually turn it off and reboot.  
Suggestions?  Thank you in advance.

    Games are Elder Scrolls IV and Tiger Woods 09 - I log onto xbox live everytime I turn it on and down load any updates...assuming the patches automatically prompt to be downloaded...right?  I thought overheating may be an issue so I've cleared the area around the unit from any obstructions but the symptoms have not changed.  I've also done my best to blow any dust buildup from the vent openings although there didn't seem to be much buildup present.  Thanks for your input - any other ideas?

    It's unpredictable for me. Sometimes it's when I start a disc game. Sometimes it's when I stream something from Netflix. Sometimes it's in an arcade game--and sometimes I can go hours without it happening.



    Unfortunately, it's happening frequently enough now to make the consolue so unreliable that I really don't want to use it.

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.

Well your disc is officially garbage because it's scratched beyond repair. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.
