Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Started a week ago, would be in the middle of a game and the screen would simply freeze (no errors or red lights). Had the system looked at and nothing was found. Assumed I may have a corrupt file so started new game and saved it to a memory card. This worked for a while but it has returned and freezes everytime I try to load the franchise file (2K Baseball). Seems as though something is corrupting my files. Same thing has happened to another game.
There are really only 2 options when looking at this type of error. It is either:
1. A bad Disk
2. An internal problem with the system
A bad disk (or multiple disks) will occur when they become scratched, dirty, or destroyed. The best option here is to clean the disks with a non-abrasive cleaner and hope that it solves the problem. A good test is to try a brand new disk to see if the problem goes away.
An internal problem is very hard to nail down. Freezing can be caused by a number of factors but it is almost always associated with an overheating situation. It is important to make sure that the XBOX has plenty of room and ventilation around it. In fact, the worst thing that a user can do is to place the console inside an entertainment center nook and close the door. It is recommended that the console sit outside of the entrainment center and away from heat sources. There are a number of add on components that you could buy to increase the airflow into the console as well.
If this is an XBOX 360, also consider that the hard drive may be going bad. The best way to test this is to get your hands on another hard drive that you know works and test it in your console. If the problem resolves then the issue is related to the hard drive.
