Did you do the towel trick for your RROD? or did you do the erasor fix? because the towel trick wil eventually kill your 360 and if you did the erasor fix or any other Do-it-yourself fix that keeps the gpu from coming loose then what ever is keeping it from becoming loose might be too thick and cause stress on your motherboard which can freeze up the system at any time.

Yikes! red ring is not good, if the whole ring is red you need to check your AV cables, three sections is the Red Ring of Death and you need to send your Xbox in for repairs(http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-360/troubleshoot/flashinglights.aspx). Off the top of my head I can't remember what the two or one red sections mean, I do know their not as serious as the three. my girlfriends freezes from time to time and red rings, but when we restart her system it all goes away (sometimes it still jams at the Xbox load screen)
two work-around methods for those consumers who are experiencing the "freeze" issue:
1) Remove or disable the HDD
2) Load three different Xbox 360 games to the main title screen of
each game then load Major League Baseball 2K6 on Xbox 360. All three
Xbox 360 games must be completely different before loading Major League
It's very possible that your xbox is overheating or on the verge of a "red ring" problem. Try testing another game to see if the game freezes. If it does and you end up getting the 3 red rings, you will need to take measures through xbox support to get it repaired (for free if within 3 years of purchase)
you need to go over the mainboard with a heatgun in a circular motion 2-3 inches away from it. pay attention to around the cpu, gpu and memory chips and you will end up re-seating the solder and should fix this better for you. i dont know what you did to fix it in the first place but i can say that errors like the 3rrod really benefit from taking your time when doing the fix and making sure everything is covered.
Shutting off the Xbox corrupted the Hard Drive... Have you ever got a Live System Update? You can also reset your Xbox without shutting it off using the controller. You probably have the Three Red Rings of Death... Go to this...
There are two possible solutions to this issue. One the data that you downloaded either got corrupted during transfer somehow or during a resent save. You should delete all the iformation off your hard drive and start fresh. If this doesnt work try takeing off your hard drive and playing a game if it deosnt freeze you will need to either try the delete method or get a new HD.
If this doesnt solve your issue then it is very possible that your system is headed for the red rings of death. My system was fried after i had played assasins creed. It would freeze up and create this checker pattern on my back ground my system shortly after went red ring.
Your system is headed for the dreaded red ring w/ three red rings. My system started doing the same thing just before this happend. If you have a service plan with it i would suggest returning it and getting a new one.
I tried all the there little tricks as well deleted everything off my harddrive all that good stuff i think it made mine worse. Cuz after all that i turned it back on and bam three red lights and no picture or sound.
try to keep the box in a spot where it and the power brick can stay cool.... same thing happened to my first box eventually it got the rings of death like so many other xboxs out there... so if keeping it well aired dont work you need to ring micro soft and have it sent off for repairs before it suffers a system failure
