Hello.

Your console will likely be suffering from a cold joint under the GPU in the section where the scaling unit is located.
Once the processor gets hot like in the game the cold joint gradually looses contact which leads to artifacts.
The problem is going to become more and more permanent until you get a general hardware error which will be indicated by your console showing one red light and an error message on the screen.

Make sure that your console is getting enough fresh cold air to rule out that it is overheating because in rare cases this can cause artifacts as well.

If your console is covered by the warranty I would suggest waiting for the console to get that error, then you can call Xbox Support and they will fix your console free of charge(if it is covered by the warranty, thats 1 year from the date of purchase).
In case it doesnt show an error yet or your console is older than 1 year they are going to charge you around 120$ for the repair.

If you cant or dont want to wait for it to die completely you could also try to fix it on your own, on our website you can find a detailed step by step tutorial that will lead your through the repair process, here is the link: http://xbox-experts.com/e/tutorial.php?n=hybrid

Zombie mode within call of duty is a game to test how far a player can go with only one chance/live. There is no saving or restarting whatsoever. There is no cheat to go around this. My only suggestion is for him to keep on practicing, and eventually he will continue to reach a higher level. There is also a variety of zombie maps that can be bought.

Complete Insane Easily


When playing Gears of War 2 it is possible for two players to play together in co op. This alone increases your chances of surviving as your friend is better (hopefully) than the computer AI. However it is also possible for you to play on separate difficaulties. Getting your partner to play on casual while you play on insane insures you will have a much easieir time completing the game.

Game not working on x box 360 did work once but now it cannot read the disc, other games work well.the game is "call of duty world at war"


call of duty has a history of being a console killer, if your xbox 360 version is older, your console engine might not be able to keep up with this kind of game, I had an xbox 360 b4 and same thing happened it plays on other games but wont play with call of duty. It also happened to my ps3, what I did was I updated my firmware version for both console. Now both consoles works with call of duty. Give it a try. Thanks
