My xbox keeps freezing 20 minutes into a game of Halo Wars
When I got the demo for Halo Wars it worked great! Then it started freezing 20 minutes into a game of skirmish. I ignored it because it was the demo, but then when I got the real game it kept happening. My xbox 360 will either freeze completely or it will the screen will freeze but I can still talk to my friends.

The Xbox 360 is backwards compatible with certain games that were released for the original Xbox. Currently there are more than 200 BC titles with more being added all the time. Big name titles such as Halo, Halo 2, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Ninja Gaiden Black are just some of the Xbox games you can play on Xbox 360
There is a requirement for backwards compatibility and that is you have to have a hard drive for your Xbox 360. If you bought a Core system you can't play original Xbox games on your system until you buy a hard drive
The problem is not with halo; your xbox GPU is losing the connection with the mainboard. This is a common problem, and microsoft faced a class-action lawsuit because of it. Call microsoft tech support; if you're lucky, they'll send you a new console.
Try turning the xbox on and off. Try removing the power from the xbox and plugging it back in. Try other discs and see if it works. Try doing updates on your xbox360 and see if that fixes the problem. That fixed mine with Halo.
It sounds like you have DVD drive issues. You did not say how old your machine was, or how long it's been since you bought it. Microsoft is being nice these days and will fix it for free if it's not old. So the best thing to do before you do anything is give thenm a call 1 800 4-MY- XBOX and see if they can help you. If not, then I can tell you that repairing this system is not easy and I definitely would not recommend you open it and try to fix it yourself. I'll be more than happy to fix it for you, but I don't know where you are. Good luck.
There are two possible solutions to this issue. One the data that you downloaded either got corrupted during transfer somehow or during a resent save. You should delete all the iformation off your hard drive and start fresh. If this doesnt work try takeing off your hard drive and playing a game if it deosnt freeze you will need to either try the delete method or get a new HD.
If this doesnt solve your issue then it is very possible that your system is headed for the red rings of death. My system was fried after i had played assasins creed. It would freeze up and create this checker pattern on my back ground my system shortly after went red ring.
Your system is headed for the dreaded red ring w/ three red rings. My system started doing the same thing just before this happend. If you have a service plan with it i would suggest returning it and getting a new one.
I tried all the there little tricks as well deleted everything off my harddrive all that good stuff i think it made mine worse. Cuz after all that i turned it back on and bam three red lights and no picture or sound.
