I have been playing star ocean the last hope and now my xbox 360 freezes constantly. Help! I deleted and reloaded the game and it still freezes. I thought it was the game but now Oblivion is freezing too.

The reason why your Xbox 360 keeps on freezing is because you will soon encounter the red ring of death or the E74 error. to simply solve this error check out this vid

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!

Freezes on game, remove game, frozen picture stays, 3 red blinking light on console, get nothing but that when I turn it back on -xbox 360

If the lights are red, then you got the RROD (RED RING OF DEATH) call ing 1-800-4MY-XBOX to send your console in and get it repaired. Or do the Towel Trick to fix it yourself.

Xbox 360 problem with scratching disks

If your xbox is making that ring around your disc chances are you are playing your xbox standing up, if you lay the xbox down on its side this may fix the problem atleast it did for me. And as for the the midnight club freezing all the time it is still doing this on my xbox, copy the game to hard drive, and it should deffinitly limit the game from freezing, it worked for me.

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!!!!
