Re: My xbox keeps on freezing
I agree with Dozer; compressed air can do wonders for the Xbox. Currently, Microsoft is being sued for the number of Xbox 360 consoles experiencing the "Red Rings of Death." Microsoft is making amends by fixing the Xbox 360 at no charge. You can take it apart yourself and clean it but it'll void your warranty; choice is yours.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

This could be a case of the system over heating in which case you should have items removed from near your console.
You could also try removing the hard drive (make sure your Xbox is turned off before you remove it) and using your xbox without it, if that stops the freezing error then the problem lies in your hard drive.

I have the exact same problem when I play Lego Batman on my Wii. Unfortunately, since the Wii version is the same as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, it has lots of data that the Wii console can't handle sometimes, thus making that loud noise and freezing up. You can't fix it, but the best solution would be to:
1) Unplug the Wii, then plug it back in.
2) Start up the game and try that same part again. It should work. If it doesn't, just keep trying.
*Note: When you plug it back in and start the game again, don't do any other levels before the level that keeps freezing up and making that loud noise. I hope this helps.
it is definately a possibility that where you keep your Xbox is the problem. ive actually gone through 3 so far (thank god for the xbox return service) on the latest one i moved it to on top of a speaker away from anything that gives off heat when in use (like your dvd player) and its outlived the other 2. good luck!
No red lights? Do you have your system properly vented? If you own an older system you may want to consider purchasing a cooling fan. Also some games are known to have a freezing glitch "Ex: Rainbow 6 vegas 1" If the games are freezing all the time after just 10 minutes that sounds like something you may want to contact Microsoft about repairing
