If it's still under warranty and not chipped then yes microsoft should replace it. if not you can fix it yourself by buying an x clamp kit, it's quite easy to repair. the best is here http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/XBOX-360-X-Clamp-Fix-Kit-RROD-Xclamp-Repair-HQ-Paste_W0QQitemZ330337699118QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_VideoGames_VideoGameAccessories_VideoGameAccessories_JN?hash=item4ce9a9452e&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=65%3A12|66%3A2|39%3A1|72%3A1687|240%3A1308|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50

Ok, this could be a problem with the hard drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it.

This can also be caused by a Hard Drive Eprom Error also. if this error continues after the hard drive is removed, contact microsoft for a repair ticket. this repair should be free if under warranty.

XBOX 360 makes a buzzing sound over the tv then freezes


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.

2 Red lights

2 red lights is overheating, try giving it a dust out and if this does not work you will need to stop the heat build up inside.

To do this you can send it in or use a good Xbox 360 Repair guide to fix it.

My xbox 360 freezes after being on for a couple of minutes. How do i stop this


If it freezes and then the next time you turn it on has red lights on the console display check out the corresponding Microsoft articles for the number of red rings on the display. They appear in quadrants on it.
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

If you do not have any rings, your console may just be overheating. Give it a while to cool down and if that doesn't work, give Microsoft a call: 1-800-4MYXBOX. Good Luck!

Wen on xbox live the xbox freezes on the screen and console no red lights though


The freezing problems happens before the red lights in most cases it is the soldering coming loose because the motherboard is bending due to heat.

To fix it you need to stop the heat build up and you can do this yourself or send it in and they will fix it for you.
