Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
It's if the screen is getting pixelated (little black dots, sometimes white dots. You can still see the game, original gameplay still goes, but with all of my games it has this glitch. It happens mostly with gameplay, NOT loading screens, etc.. On Assasins Creed it only does it in the sky, Fable 2, half the screen does it (there's actually a red burst as well), Grand Theft Auto 4 and Dead Space has it on whole screen, character and all. The only other place you can see it is when you first start up the Xbox and the very first Xbox logo appears before the dashboard pops up. Dashboard is perfectly fine, movies still play with no problem. I always play on a standard tv with the composite AV cable that came with it. I tried my Xbox on another tv that is HD with the cable for that tv (completely different tv and cable), still has problem.
This can mean that the artifacts are problems with the lead free solder and in my experience it will get
worse, its usually on games that require heavy graphics then its definately the lead free solder problem and
will lead to either 3rrod, e73 or e74 etc etc.
my advice is dont play it to death, keep it cool and if you want it to be ok i would do the x-clamp
replacement and possibly re-solder the whole board. this is done by the use of an IR oven similar to what we
use, OR you can use a normal heatgun but i dont recommend it because it can cause damage and knock fuses off
the mainboard if not used properly.
in the meantime id play it for an hour a time and make sure its not in any cupboard or anything. getting
something like an intercooler can help. We use something called SystemX which cures this type of problem.
See how you go.

The reason that this happens is because the GPU is overheating, you can actually fix it yourself from home and also with household items.
Or you can send it back to Microsoft this is up to you though.
Hope this helps!
