    the game freezes up constantly although it seems to be in action sequences and sometimes the game lags beforehand. Anyway, now the whole system is dead.

The freezing means that a system error is eminent. You can rectify and probably fix your consoles by doing an X-Clamp replacement fix, or if you are still in warranty you can send it back to Microsoft for repair or replacement. have a lot of tutorials on X-Clamp fixes or you can use my 'pressure' method by reading here http:/

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!

This occurs during your second Dark Prince transformation (this is in the large courtyard right before the first chariot sequence). In the corner of the courtyard, there will be a hole in the ceiling that respawns enemies until you leave the area. Near that is a panel you need to stab and hang from to open the exit. Climb the closest pole to the hole in the ceiling and a female voice will start announcing sound credits for the game.

Why when i play mw2 i get black lines everywhere

Okay well would you be able to try someone elses game? or even try a dvd? Your Xbox may be overheating and an internal part may be dying. It could be an easy fix, unfortunately I don't have enough information to give you an accurate description. If you still have a warranty you should just call Microsoft.

Every time I play any of my games. somewhere along the line during gameplay... it stops and will say open tray. I close the tray it starts back up fine and then after a while it will do the same thing...

The open tray error indicates that you need your DVD drive replaced. If you are under your 1 year warranty go to and fill out a repair request there. If you are out of warranty then I suggest getting the replacement done by a knowledgeable professional. If you are uncertain as to what you are doing it's very likely that even with a "Successful" repair your 360 will never play games again. I do repairs like this by mail, you can contact me at [email protected] for more info if you'd like.

360 Freezes during gameplay

try to keep the box in a spot where it and the power brick can stay cool.... same thing happened to my first box eventually it got the rings of death like so many other xboxs out there... so if keeping it well aired dont work you need to ring micro soft and have it sent off for repairs before it suffers a system failure
