There could be hardware problems! mine never gave the two lights when it started it but when playing certain games it overheated and thats whats happening.. i got upset and opened mine up[ voids warrenty for three red lights] and added a 3 inch fan with a 12 v converter for its on power. i set it in on the heat sink and the bottom right corner of the xbox..

so i think you should get a powerful 3inch by 3inch fan with its on power supply and set ur xbox so you can point the fan at the bottom of the xbox! this will help! dont open ur xbox just set a powerful fan[ radio shack, walmart, hardware store] and let it cool the bottom of ur xbox!!!!!!!!

Cheapist way

!!items needed!!!

1. 12 v dc brushless fan

1. 12 volt ac power adapter that hooks up to the wall and the fan for a Direct Current!
thats it may cost over 20 and walmart is cheap and a little less quality

but as long as air pushing on the bottom of ur xbox is moving fast[ dont put the fan to close] so heat is transfered ur good

My xbox freezes and flashes red


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.

Stop the heat and you will be fine.

Four flashing red lights, xbox worked fine lastnight


Doesn't really have to do with hdmi. They call it the red ring of death, I've had it happen to me 4 times. It's a problem that happens to almost everyone. Call 1-800-4my-xbox, "I think that's right" and tell them your problem, they fix it for free, and give the address to send your xbox to and send you a new one. Just call and they will go over everything with you.

What is the error code at the bottom of the screen & check for flashing red lights on the power button if 3 illuminate it the infamous RROD(Red Ring of Death-google it) which you will get a free repair for if its the bottom right quadrant flashing red then its most probably E74 or E61. E61 is a hard drive related problem so try playing without it, & E74 is the AV cable snapped inside or the GPU/CPU inside the xbox 360 has weak solders on it, I suggest MS support ASAP.
