This means you're soon to get the 3 REd Rings. Call Microsoft at 1-800-4-MYXBOX and see if the 3 year warranty is still available for you console. If it is then keep playing it till you get it and send it in to Microsoft for free repair.

If you're out of warranty either pay the $100-$130 bucks to get it fixed.


(you'll get the RROD soon)

And if you do try these solutions.

Call Microsoft at 1-800-4-MYXBOX to see if the 3 year warranty is still available for you console (it's 3 years + 90 days of RROD and E74 Error Warranty).

If you;'re out of luck and your warranty is void, you can open up the console and under the cpu and the graphics card put this thermal solution (this is thermal solution and it keeps the cpu and gpu (graphics processing unit) cool

Watch this video on how to apply the thermal paste and how to open up the console.

Or if you need a temporary fix (works temporarily...) you can do the towel trick.

I haven't used my xbox 360 in about 2 years. It has very low play time on it. Now when I try to play a game it freezes up. No red light of death...just screen freezing.

when I see this problem 90% of the time it's the G.P.U. desoldering
itself from the main board . The G.P.U. will need to be resolders (reflowed ) cost will very 60.00-80.00 so shop around for someone

Freezing no matter what

It's very possible that your xbox is overheating or on the verge of a "red ring" problem. Try testing another game to see if the game freezes. If it does and you end up getting the 3 red rings, you will need to take measures through xbox support to get it repaired (for free if within 3 years of purchase)

Freezes and stops

If the 360 was ON when it fell or recently turned off then there might be a chance that the GPU connections were softened from the heat of being used. If this is the case set the 360 on its side, as in horizontally and turn it on for around 30 minutes and then turn it off and let it cool down for 30 minutes. This should warm up the GPU connections and then cool them down in the proper positions.

It's best if you leave the 360 on it's side then vertically.
