    Game plays fine for a couple of minutes and then freezes. After that, the 3 flashing red lights come on the front of the console.

Why does my xbox 360 kepps freezing when i play games?


360's tend to lock up before the "red rings of death". You get this when the system overheats and has problems with the solder coming loose. Mine took a little over a weak before it got the red rings after it kept freezing after a few min.'s of playing.

It could be overheating because the fan is not getting enough air out. try cleaning the console itself outside and using can of compressed air to get any buildup in the vent holes and fan cleared. There are a few FAQS on this site to learn about a few tricks.

feel free to comment if you have any questions. Hope this helped and remember you have a three year waranty on your xbox for the red ring and E74 error!

I have 3 flashing red lights and when i play anything the xbox freezes up in 20 or so mins of play


Send it back to Microsoft for repair. There is a free extended 3 year warranty to cover the so called 'Red Ring Of Death' and more recent the 'E74 Error''

Go to www.xbox.com/support and choose the first option '3 red lights...' for details on how to return. It won't cost if it's covered under the extended guarantee, you can type in your serial numbe to find out.

Game freezes and dots appear on screen


I hate to break it to you, but you may have gotten the Red Ring Of Death. It happens when playing a game and it is transmitted through online play through Xbox Live. 3 red lights will appear around the power button when your console has become infected. The Red Ring of Death may have infected your console causing it to shut down. Most Xbox 360 consoles won't turn back on but some do turn back on but they just won't play games, they will freeze up and have the dotted lines and make the buzzing noise. I'm sorry, but I think you may need a new console. You're in luck if it's still under warranty. Hope this helps!!!!

Game freezes after 5-10 mins play time


if when it freezes it has a kind of checkerboard pattern, then it is what happens before the three red lights of death, try the eraser trick posted by Carl26
