If you're still under warranty (and the 360 has not been opened) I say send it in for repairs. If it has been opened than it sounds like a heating issue so make sure you put it back together properly and ventilation is moving through the console the way it should. Also make sure the heat sinks are in the correct spots. If you have no clue what I'm saying just google 360 repair guide and check the ventilation in them for reference.

this usually happens when u have the red ring of death, to make sure of that check your xbox when ur game freezes, if red rings come up u have the red ring of death. u can contact microsoft and they will wither fix ur console or send u a new one
If it freezes and then the next time you turn it on has red lights on the console display check out the corresponding Microsoft articles for the number of red rings on the display. They appear in quadrants on it. 1 red ring 2 red rings 3 red rings 4 red rings
If you do not have any rings, your console may just be overheating. Give it a while to cool down and if that doesn't work, give Microsoft a call: 1-800-4MYXBOX. Good Luck!
Games freeze for two reasons. Overheating and the hard drive locking up. If you have your games installed, you most likely eliminated the overheating problem.
Since you are not getting Red Ring, it probably isn't overheating. That leaves the hard drive. Turn of the console and unplug it. Remove the hard drive. Now is a good time to clean any dust from the connectors or vents. Reattach and play. Some games like Fable 2, Fallout 3, and others are more prone to freezing when accessing the hard drive that others. If it is freezing more times than not, you have an issue with the hard drive.
You have what Microsoft calls the "red ring of death"
Call microsoft and they will send u a paid postage box. You send ur Xbox back to them and they fix it and send it back to you... for free!!!! if u live in the US/Europe or some other first world country where the warrenty is supported.
this has happened to me... i was first getting red ring of death then i fixed it and never got RROD again but it started freezing during gameplay, then at dashboard and then at the beginning until it couldnt start at all... this can be cause by overheating GPU and CPU causing them to bend and lose connection...just like RROD, or it can possibly be that component that reads and plays games, is screwed up...
frist r there any marks on the disc try this put some washing up clener on the disc lighty rubin it in the wash it off with luck warm water dry with a cloth then play the game let me know how u get on thanks david
microsoft have extended theyre warrenty on xbox 360consoles to 3 years with the ring of death problem... so microsoft shuld fix it free of charge just bring it to wherever you bought it and they should take care of it.
