Screen freezes and turns pink sometimes during game play

This is a precursor to a bigger problem. If this just started and you have an older Xbox, you should start to expect game crashing and potentially the Red Rings of Death. Try to clear your system cashe and play a different game. Otherwise, expect more problems.

My xbox 360 keeps on freezing up on me when i am playing my games, it has been doing it for a few weeks now, what can i do about it.

Well, most people said after about a month of it freezing they got the rrod, red ring of death. You could try clearing your system cache or if you still have your warranty send it in. Try this site for more help

When i put in a game it plays for 4-5 minutes Then freeze's

If you're still under warranty (and the 360 has not been opened) I say send it in for repairs. If it has been opened than it sounds like a heating issue so make sure you put it back together properly and ventilation is moving through the console the way it should. Also make sure the heat sinks are in the correct spots. If you have no clue what I'm saying just google 360 repair guide and check the ventilation in them for reference.

Cant play games on Xbox 360 live

imma suspect its overheating. beings the fact youve experienced the red ring of death in the past. its either overheating or the hard disk is going bad. unless your using a memory unit. then id point the finger at overheating. the x360 is basically a computer. and when the cpu and gpu overheat or experience harsh temperatures they tend to run sluggish and their performance goes down the **** till they cool down or overheat to the point that the system locks up and crashes/hangs. if you can post more info as much detailed as you can i may be able to more help ya!

Xbox 360 freezing

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.
