Re: halo3 freezing before i even start playing

Sorry to say but you need join the que of people frustrated by the problems that Halo 3 suffers on the XBox 360.

Simply search the internet and you will find a plethora of people having the exact same issues.

Some have found that running the Halo 3 update helps, some find it makes things worse. This is a know issue that Microsoft are once again denying and there appears to be a few law suits being attempted.

My suggestion? Return the game tot he store as faulty and buy it for your PC instead. Sorry this is probably not what you want to hear.

My xbox keeps freezing 20 minutes into a game of Halo Wars

Most likely your GPU has a broken solder point on the mother board.

EA Sports Games and the 360

Well it can that the GPU is overheating, that happens very often and I will tell why. Microsoft is so cheap that sometimes they forget to put the thermal compound on the heatsink that covers the GPU, so the poor GPU is force to the max and overheats easily after long periods of gaming. Thats why it freezes on the middle of the game. That was very common on xbox machines made before the launch of HALO 3, the new models do come with the compound but just a little bit of it, what a I do is that a use thermal compound like artic or other brand a put a even amount on the heatsink so it covers the entire GPU, then overheatings problems disappears. Hope it helps

Xbox360 - Call of Duty 4 campaign & Halo 3 wont load!! Please Help!

Definitely, try exchanging the hard drive, as it could be that it is corrupt, also try clearing the cache on the drive by following the directions on Microsoft's website, under the solutions for the system freeze ups. If this does not fix the problem, then you definitely want to get a refund for the console.

Have you checked you haven't been putting the bonus disk in? The disk you want is labeled 'GAME DISK'

Xbox 360 and halo 3

Is the disc warm? Let it cool off or maybe its because the disc is scratched which means you need to fix it.

XBox 360 freezing- Not what you think

Your system is headed for the dreaded red ring w/ three red rings. My system started doing the same thing just before this happend. If you have a service plan with it i would suggest returning it and getting a new one.

I tried all the there little tricks as well deleted everything off my harddrive all that good stuff i think it made mine worse. Cuz after all that i turned it back on and bam three red lights and no picture or sound.

Xbox 360 Freeze!!

It's a common fault with X boxes, the red lights indicate overheating, so make sure it is well ventillated and if neccasary you can purchase an add on cooler for the system.
