Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
It is freezing up on me as the game load I turn it off then on and the red lights show . What can I do ?
2 red lights flashing is'nt too bad of a deal. just reposition your xbox 360 to a place where more airflow can get to it. plus, dont have anything that gives off heat near the xbox 360, thats vary important to give it room for cool air. it worked for me

Unfortunately there is nothing that you can directly do to fix this problem without voiding your warranty,. This means that if you attempt to repair it and fail MS will not fix it for you.. The "Fix" posted by others SOMETIMES works, but NOT ALWAYS.
Pleae be careful with your expesive gear!
You have a hardware failure. Microsoft will repair your unit for you under warranty / recall.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Which lights are red? That is a diagnostic code for the xbox.
'One Red Light
You see the lower-right quadrant of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360 console
This behavior occurs when the Xbox 360 console experiences a hardware failure. - Disconnect all cables, reconnect and try again...if you still have it, disconnect / reconnect your HDD, if it still occurs, keep your HDD disconnected and try again, if it then works, your HDD is fried...
Two Red Lights
The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of the Xbox 360 console
This behavior occurs when the internal temperature of the console exceeds the acceptable limits. You may think of this as too hot, overheating, and so on. Make sure the fans are operating and the system has adequate ventilation.
Three Red Lights (Ring of Death)
The upper-right quadrant light is the only light that does not flash red
This behavior occurs when the Xbox 360 console experiences a hardware failure. Examine the lights on the power supply. When you turn on the console, the power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the Ring of Light flash red. (aka Hope still exists) - If it is red, there is an electrical problem, try a different outlet. If it is orange, it is not connected to the console correctly, disconnect and reconnect.
If the power supply is green, then it is time to call Xbox support.(1-800-4myxbox)'
