Re: the xbox restarts itself repetadly when it starts
This could be do to a bad ROL (ring of lights board) easy to replace and cheap. about 6 bucks on ebay. they even have one's with blue or red lights to give you a cool look to your system. if not this may have to be done....
is what you need to do is open your'e console, their
are help video's on U tube for this. Once your is console open and you
have the mother board taken out you need to remove the heat sinks which
are on top of the chips. just un-snap the x clamps (on the bottom of
and take off the heat sinks. unscrew the tabs on the bottom of the
heats sinks and take them out. now take one of the heat sinks to a
hardware store and find 8 screws about an inch long that screw into the
heat sinks, also buy 16 plastic washers and 8 metal washers that fit
onto the screws.also trey to find a BUTANE Torch this will save you
from the expensive heat guns and work just as good. the last thing you
need is Arctic Silver 5 which can be found for 5 bucks on eBay. now once
you have this you need to lay your motherboard on a flat inflammable
area. light the torch and make sure it is on the LOWEST setting and
that the flame is about 3/4 inch long and make a sort on hissing sound.
make shure the top of the chips are cleaned with a paper towel of the
paste. start with the torch about 3 inches over a chip and keep it
moving with a sweeping motion after about 30 seconds start to get close
but not to close about an inch an a half away and keep making sweeping
and circular movements for about 2 min. do not get to close. now move
to the next chip and do the same thing. now after ur done with the
chips move the torch away about 3inches and keep heat on both chips for
another minute and let them cool for a total of 10 to 15 minutes. once
they are cool to the touch clean off the metal parts of the chips with
alcohol (I preffer acitone too) make shure they have a mirror like
finish and put a very little glob of the artic silver on the metal
chips and evenly flaten it out till it covers them evenly, make shure
to apply enough! ( i used the side of a allen wrench, its less messy).
now on the bottom of both heat sinks, clean them off with acitone or
alcohol and scrub them very firmly to get off the grime from the paste.
now put one plastic washer on each screw and insert them through the
bottom of the holes surrounding the chips flip the mother board over
and put the other 8 plastic washers on the screws and on top of these
put on the 8 metal washers. then put the heat sinks on and tighten them
down. once you put the mother board in the metal casing, plug it
in(dont fully essmble it yet) now test out your xbox
by pressing the little button on the ring of lights board and let it
boot up a usual. If it works then ur done, but if 3 red lights start
blinking or two red light start blinking you need to adjust the 8
screws. through the 8 holes in the bottom of the metal casing stick a
small screwdriver in there and make shure they are all snug but not to
tight and then loosin each one about an 1/8 of a turn till there just a
little loose. keep testing and adjusting the screws till it boots up
with the green lights.
THIS WILL REPAIR 3RED LIGHTS,FREEZING,NO VIDEO, 2 red LIGHTS. in most cases 1 RED LIGHT will be fixed
GO TO A HAREWARE STORE FIND THE FOLLOWING THINGS IF YOU DONT HAVE THEM
16 platic washers
8 metal washers(make shure all the washers fit snuggly around the screws and are very thin)
8 screws about an inch long that fit heat sinks
Butane blow torch, just a small one will do
small torx wrench kit. big and small flat and phillips head screwdrivers

Your resolution settings on the xbox are too high for your currently used cables or tv. To reset your console's resolution follow these steps:
To reset Xbox 360 console display settings
If there is a disc in the console, remove it.
Turn off the console.
Turn on the console by using your controller (its best to have the controller plugged into the console rather than just using the wireless). To do this, press and hold the controller's Xbox Guide button until your console turns on.
While the console is starting, press and hold the Y button and pull the right trigger at the same time. Continue holding the buttons when you see the Xbox 360 logo.
The console will restart and you will see the Xbox 360 logo again. The console's display settings are now reset to the defaults.
for PS3, hold the power button for at least 5 seconds or until you hear a second beep.
for Xbox 360, Turn the console on. Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn the console on by using the Xbox Guide button on the controller. Note Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller is the controller where the upper-left quadrant light is on. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time. This causes the Xbox Dashboard to reset the display settings to the default settings and then automatically restarts the console. So it's OK when the Xbox 360 console restarts.
