Thanks #3 my xbox was standing vertically on a rug, and it would get to the spinning x and freeze. Well I decided to take a shot and see if it got more air by horizontally putting the xbox and it worked! within 5 seconds it turned right on and worked perfectly!!!!!

Hi Jambenzman. 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. The only options that you have to get it working again, is to return it to the store, or to microsoft if the warranty is still valid. Either ways, you might wanna call Microsoft to check if they will replace it. They've done favors to many out there, even with out of warranty systems, offering a refurbished console as a replacement. Hell, they even provide the packing box for shipping to you. Hope that helps, cheebster.

Hey this happened to me, but what you can do is stick the power source (the black rectangle thing) on to an open box or something so the entire thing gets air. If its on a rug or something, it will overheat and cause the thig to freeze
