Xbox360 during game play screen gets trippy green dots

While i was playing cod 4 and cod waw after playing for a while the screen will get a bunch of vertical black dots. You ca still see the game barely if i backout of the game to the lobby the picture is fine. When I go the xbox marketplace the background is fine but the windows have vertical lines on and are unable to be read I was told the graphics chip but I dont know PLEASE HELP I had the same thing on cod:waw on xbox live. like a grid of black lines that stayed with my movement. then today i get the one rrod on the 4th player slot. f*ck, so i think it could be a bad a/v cable. but then i try that risky 3x towel trick. it puts my box into 3 rrod mode. just gets better. i try that method three times and no luck. then i stand the machine vertical, tap on the left side a few times, and after a few desperate on/offs... im on. but the vertical lines are still there. im going to pick up a new a/v cable in the am and see if that works. yaaa i have a similar problem but i have trippy green dots in game play and can barely see anything.and i have a red right in the player 4 spot .i have no clue wat to do, fix it please

It is possible that its a bad av cable, however if you are getting rrod, there is an internal hardware problem. If you are still in warranty, call microsoft and get it sent in asap, if you are out of warranty then go pick up a new system. If you have a pro or elite system, you can just reuse your hard drive. So you can buy an arcade version(which will likely have newest mother board JASPER) and just put your hard drive assembly on it. There should be instructions on how to remove the side panel/hard drive on microsofts xbox support page.

I just got cod waw game but computer doesnt support vertex data am i wasting my time. I have acer L3600


Hello there,
COD WAW has a minimum system requirements of the following:
CPU: AMD 64 3200+/Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz
RAM: 512MB (XP) / 1GB (VISTA)
HDD: 8 Gigabyte
GPU: 256MB Nvidia 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT
One main reason why you cannot play the game, is that Intel GMA 3100 is not capable of rendering the vertex shaders that has to do with lighting.
  • In order to play the game, you need to buy at least greater than the PCIE video card mentioned. It's that simple.
  • For example buy an ATI HD 4670 512MB or Nvidia 9500GT 512MB consider the memory.
  • Click the link for PCIE Video card installation procedure. Installation

The game wont play graphics just sound


the x300 se is not a gaming card! Especially for new games such as cod waw. Get a Nvidia 9600gt to play that game reasonably!

Black lines 1/8 of an inch apart going down my screen when playin


I had this happen a few times, then after a while it stoped working all together. In the end I was getting the E74 message code appear when I turned on my xbox 360.

You'll probley get this happen with yours soon, the E74 code means theres a problem with your visual display.

Sometimes it can be as simple as changing your HD Lead or scart lead, whatever your using. If you know someone else with a xbox try theirs.

If this doesn't work you'll have to send it off to mircosoft, it will be free if your still under warrenty, if not I think it's about £100+

Or you could go on www.cd24-7.co.uk and buy one of their DIY kits.

Hope this helps.
