Why is my 360 freezing

When i turn on the console, it freezes before it even loads up the game(s) or dashboard. there are times when it runs through and lets me play a game but in the middle of the game the sound cuts out and at the end of the game it freezes. i have already tried changes the t.v. settings and the sound settings but i still get the same effect. please someone help fast, i just got a new game and i really want to play it.

The consoles warranty period was raised to 3 years after purchase so, you will not need to pay Microsoft to fix your console (you only pay shipping and handling).

Re: why is my 360 freezing

This is a defective 360, very common, not an issue with the tv, microsoft would advise calling them and most likely paying them to fix the console, you may be better off buying an elite, they have fewer problems, there really isnt anyway to fix this, unless you happen to have the hardware and software to do so, not to mention knowing how to take it apart repair or replace whatever is causing the problem and then put it back together, the reason i will never own a standard 360 is just this, they break for no reason and quite often, my freinds have them and so do some of my coworkers, out of around 20 people i know that own them only one has an original that has not broken, its also played maybe once a month and even then its only on for maybe 2 hours, I recommend either replacing it with an elite, a ps3, or a wii, youll have far less problems, and just so you know if you dont already microsoft sucks for customer service, they expect you to pay for just about everything and usualy full retail prices, in the end i would be cheaper/easier to just buy another 360

Xbox freeze mid game

If this happens online and only on a particular disc Ibelieve that this is not a problem with your Xbox 360 console, it might be the game server for COD MW2 or due to your internet connection which might be having some unstable connection to MW2 server. If Gears is working smoothly you should not be bothered having your console getting RROD.

Make sure the disk is clean & free of scratches and make sure your memory card has room for the game.

Xbox 360 Freezing Problems

Shutting off the Xbox corrupted the Hard Drive... Have you ever got a Live System Update? You can also reset your Xbox without shutting it off using the controller. You probably have the Three Red Rings of Death... Go to this...

Games Are Freezing

this has happened to me...
i was first getting red ring of death
then i fixed it and never got RROD again
but it started freezing during gameplay, then at dashboard and then at the beginning until it couldnt start at all...
this can be cause by overheating GPU and CPU causing them to bend and lose connection...just like RROD, or it can possibly be that component that reads and plays games, is screwed up...
