This is a common fault with the 360, it sounds as if your 360 has overheated at some point and caused some damage to the solder pads. what happens is when the console overheats the mainboard warps and breaks the solder joint causing such problems as this.
and with it freezing its more than likely a memory issue. if you are ok with doing the fix yourself i would strip the console down and get a heatgun and put it onto setting no2. then go over the memory chips in a circular motion for about 10 minutes, all the time keeping the heatgun 2-3 inches away to stop it from damaging the board. this should fix this problem. if you still need help we can be contacted at www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

This is a problem with the gpu (graphics chip) the console will need stripping down and new thermal paste applied or the motherboard needs re-balling. sorry but there is no real quick fix for this.
Hope this helps.

Xbox will freeze at the dashboard


Most likely a hardware problem. If that's the case then you're probably going to need to get it repaired.
