Re: game freez in the same spot on darkness for xbox 360

If id does it on multiple machines there is a flaw on the disc (fingerprint, scratch, etc..). If not, then it may have been pressed improperly. You could try taking it to the store you bought it from and asking for an exchange. You can't RETURN opened software, but you CAN exchange it.

My xbox gets stuck in the middle of a game

Xbox 360 screen freezes are some of the common and frustrating problems that Xbox owners have had to deal with since the launch of this top notch gaming machine. More often than not, a lot of the searches occur on Google by people looking for a quick solution. But to keep from getting some unrelated information, its a good idea to understand why your Xbox 360 screen freezes in the first place. This will help you to focus your search and also make you able to spot all those tricksters with bogus promises that tend to be unreliable, and possibly hazardous to your Xbox 360 game console.

Gamers have to understand how to repair the screen freezing on their systems before it becomes a much bigger situation. One of the biggest culprits for this problem is heat. Heat build-up can easily ruin any machine with movable parts and the interior of the Xbox 360 is conducive to producing a lot of heat. If you look inside an Xbox 360 you should be able to notice just how crowded it is inside, due to its compact design. Heat producing components are placed side by side, and really just too close to each other. This is what prevents the adequate amount of air circulation causing it to overheat and then the screen freezes. There is not much we can do about how the internal components of the Xbox 360 are aligned, but we can do something to to make it cooler inside.

So Why Does My Xbox 360 Freeze Up?

This is actually a precautionary measure that was built into the Xbox 360 system. You could call it a "fail safe" response. The Xbox 360 is designed to shut down the entire system when the graphics chip gets intensely hot. This is actually a good thing because if the gamer continues to play in that overheated state, it can easily result in frying the entire system, and starting a fire; not to mention a possible injury or burns to the user.

Knowing what causes the Xbox 360 screen freezes is only half the battle. So now that you know what causes it, the next step will be the solution. You simply have to find a way to keep your Xbox 360 running cool at all times, and there are a number of ways to achieve this. You will have to buy an additional cooling unit because the one that comes with the Xbox is almost ineffective.

I am writing this article because I had a similar problem. I looked into ways to fix it myself for cheap and came across 3 of the popular ones. I tested them thoroughly for 3 days and decided that i had to make my results public so that anyone else can learn from my mistakes, and choose the right solution the first time, and not by trial and error.

During my tests I realized that the solution that worked for me was an Xbox fix guide written by Chris Jones and his team of Xbox repair professionals. It was a much cheaper solution which allowed me to fix xbox 360 screen freezes permanently on not just my Xbox but my friends as well.

My XBox 360 freezes

Well if these spot are consistent on certain disks time after time it is most likely a scratch, smudge or defect on the disk. check them all for scratches and if they are dirty try to clean them very gently with a soft cloth. This would only really concern your actual console if it occurs during heavy game loading or at the same spot during a load. Try cleaning all your disks and get back to me. GL

Try playing your game without Xbox live at first. If it doesn't freeze up, then you have an internet connection problem. Try reconnecting wires. If it does freeze up without Xbox live, it may just be the game.

The xbox 360 probably has a vital part that is out of place due to the soldered joints being melted from the heat. Call xbox customer support.

Xbox 360 entire system freeze

Hi Mattrobi8886, It sounds like your console is heading for a 3 red light error, I know from experience that freezing is not good and probably means there is trouble on the way.

Adding extra cooling to the XBOX or doing an X-Clamp replacement fix works in these situations. Getting the console apart is pretty straight forward and is quite easy, I've done it plenty of times, visit the Tutorials sections here for instructions on taking the 360 apart. also have allot of X-Clamp tutorials. I hope this helps in some way, leave me a message on the forum if you need more pointers.

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!
