This is likely due to Hardware Failure. Your GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) has likely overheated to the extent of artifacting which is when the device begins to have trouble rendering objects and images and crashes constantly. The only viable solution is to send it in if you still have warranty, Otherwise, you'll have to either buy a new Xbox 360 or send it in for repairs from microsoft.

Hope this helps.

Whenever I turn it on, white dots start flying across the screen on my Xbox 360


Hi,
It sounds like the the processor is over heating and its causing the system to shut down before it burned up the board. Basically your thermal paste between your processor and the heatsink is not doing its job. There could be a crack on it might have just degraded over time.
This can cause the system to freeze or see white dots on the screen. It needs to be repaired before more issues happen. Dont turn it on you might cause more damage
Thank you

you could x clamp mod it that will
get it running for a little while but
it will void the waranty . Add two
month to the mfg date and it might
fall in to the 3 year warranty .
the problem is
the G.P.U. has a 5-10 contacts that
have come unsolder from the main board
the FIX is to have the chip re-flowed
cost 80.00 .if its under warranty its free
