Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
If you have the 3 red lights it is becuase of the Xbox 360 overheating and the GPU and the CPU take most of the heat.
You need to stop the motherboard flexing to correct this problem, to do this you need to send it back to Microsoft or fix it yourself from home.

First of all check to see if it is still under warranty. 3 years of warranty from MS on this problem. If out of warranty you can try resetting it by causing it to overheat. Put some Q-tips with the cotton removed on the back to stop the fans from spinning and wait for two lights to flash. Once they start flashing, turn off the xbox and wait a couple of minutes for it to cool. Put it in a well ventilated area, so it will not overheat again and turn it back on. It should stop the problem for now, but if it happens again I suggest you do the screws and arctic silver modifiation to stop it from happenning again. Worked for me.
