Its a failure in the systems hardware. You have to call microsoft tech support and they will send you a box which you put your 360 in and send it to them to fix.

How to Stop the Red Ring of Death on Xbox?


Hi Carolyn,
- notice poor game performance (if your games start taking a long time to load, or they become stutter or crash, it may be indicative of a looming hardware failure)
-notice poor system performance (if your system locks up, even when not playing games, this is a sign of hardware failing).
- understand the different light codes
Green-green lights indicate that console is powered and operating properly
1 red light-Hardware fault. Usually followed by E74 code on TV
2 red lights-overheating error. If the console becomes too hot, the system will shut down and display this light code
3 red lights-general hardware failure also known as the red ring of *****
4 red lights-AV cable isnt currently plugged in

If you do get red ring of *****:
- purchase a fix kit
-have console professionally fixed
-have console sent in to microsoft
-Prevent red ring of *****-understand what causes hardware failure
-keep your system in a well ventilated area
- avoid long gaming sessions
-keep system horizontal
-avoiding stacking items on xbox
-clean gaming area
-dust xbox
