you ring microsoft, say you have 3 red lights (which you obviously dont have) and they take some details and you send it off and they send you a new one. Same thing happened to me, and thats what i'm doing.

Unfortunately the "Black Screen, White Dots" Error is caused by a hardware failure (Some say the "towel trick" works, others have used an x-clamp fix, regardless the box is about to die if you dont do something..). If your like me, and you dont want to completely dismantle your xbox, but also dont want to spend $140 for a "fix" from microsoft, you'll need to bite the bullet and replace the unit.
When I contacted Microsoft about my error because it was out of warranty they asked for $140 to repair the unit for this *specific* error (meaning if another error presents itself it will be an additional $140).
The Xbox 360 "Arcade" Version is down to roughly $200. Instead of shipping my unit to India to have it repaired and shipped back now with the possibility of other errors popping up (sand in the disk tray?), I opted to go buy the Arcade version as Microsoft has extended its factory warranty to 3 years from purchase date.
Considering it is 2009 and the next generation of gaming units are coming on the market somewhere between 2011 and 2012, the new warranty will cover you from any other issues and you wont have to worry about shelling out tons of cash to keep repairing a rushed out of production unit (it seems anyone with a build date prior to 2006 have a slew of issues).
For what its worth, I purchased the Arcade version this month which also comes with 5 free games, an additional controller, on board memory, new cables, a quieter power "brick" (which visually seems to have more cooling ducts, as well as it being lighter), and quieter fans for the box itself. The production date was roughly 2 months ago so the warranty coverage cant be disputed.

to clear the xbox 360's memory cache,
1. go to the system blade on your menu(should be the very last one)
2. go down to were it says memory, click on it. this should bring up your hard drive or other storage devices, press a on the one you want to empty
3. once youve gotten to the screen were it shows rename or format your storage device, input Y,X,X,LB,RB,X,X and a prompt will come up asking you if you want to empty your systems cache.
