Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
About a week ago my system just decided to stop playing games. I have tried to play diffrent games to make sure its not just one game. The games freeze about 3 min into the game if not sooner and occasionaly it will freeze at the very beggining when the xbox 360 logo appears. plz help im goin insane
You might check out the Informative article at Ezinearticles.com to fix
the freezing problem as the article gives the information about a DIY
guide, (though i don't remember the name of the site) but you can check

Hi m8, this is caused by either the laser being faulty and needing cleaning or adjusting OR the machine is overheating and the mainboard is warping which breaks the solder joints.
1: laser: if its the laser you may be able to fix this problem by stripping down the xbox 360 and cleaning the laser with a cotton earbud and a bit of spit (spit on the cotton bud not the laser lol). if this does not help then try adjusting the pots on the laser to around 2.82 there are guides on the net showing you how to do this. i can upload one if you need help.
2: overheating/baod failure: this is more than likely whats happening. you will need to strip down the console and take the mainboard out. take the x-clamps off (both of them) and go over the whole board (paying more attention to the memory and cpu,gpu etc) in a circular motion around 2-3 inches away from the board. let the mainbaoard cool down and then put it all back together. then try again. i guarantee this will probably fix your problem. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk
