The graphics processor, and second graphics chip both require a reflow. A special BGA reflow 'heat' machine is required.

    A bga reflow machine is basically a stattion where you place the motherboard under the heat nozzle, set the temperature you wish the heat to be, set a timer and it will apply heat of say 350 degrees to the chip for 2 minutes. This should be efficient for the solder to melt, and reset.

What your having is an problen with your Grpahic Card, VERY common with the xbox 360. currently there is no easy fix as the card is built in. you will need to find a local repair shop or send it to xbox.com for repair

Xbox 360 loading fault with dotted screen, checkered. freezes on loading screen even. sometimes it can appear there are several lines down the screen aswell so it may be 2 faults.


The freeze ups normally happen before the red lights of doom and they are caused by the GPU and the CPU getting too hot and the soldering snaps off so they lose connection.

If you stop the heat build up you will be fine.

You can do this yourself using a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

What arethe black dots appear when playing a xbox game


These "black dots" you talk abotu could be a variety of things and since you haven't given much detail it's hard for me to say.

Just double check it's not your TV or cables or any nearby electrical products causing interferance so you're certain the problem originates from your Xbox 360.

Hopefully, it's just a problem with your cable, maybe it's not plugged in right or maybe a replacement will fix it.

When I say hopefully, I mean, hopefully it's a cable fault as opposed to an Xbox 360 hardware fault. Variations of black lines or dots, or just general artifacts on screen while using your 360 usually happens prior to a hardware fault usualy concerning the GPU.

I guess it's just a waiting game for you now mate.

Just check it's not your TV or cables or any nearby electrical products causing interferance.

My xbox just freezes after a couple of mins and lines or block apear on the screen (not the whole screen) u cant do anything after that but turn it off (u have press button)


Your graphics card is bad on the motherboard. If it's still under warranty, send it back to microsoft. They extended the warranty on all the older units for 3 years.

Game freezes and dots appear on screen


I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!

check your game for deep scratches on the cd if there is none, then your best bet is shipping it back to microsoft or there is actually a company that fixes your 360 for a cheaper price. just google xbox 360 recall and if you look through the pages of signatures you will find an advertisement for 360 recalls go to that and call the #, i hope it works out for ya.

Vertical dotted line


ok either the tv is screwed and has a line of bad pixels, or there is something wrong with your xbox graphics adapter on the motherboard. Try buying a new xbox video out cable. if that doesnt work, get it serviced
