Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
This has happened with two games now. It happened with "The Darkness" and "NHL 2K8". After playing both games, the games freeze. I dont play the two games straight on for long periods of time but for like an hour a day. In both circumstances the games always freeze in almost the same exact spot. In "The Darkness" it freezes during a cut scene and in "2K8" it freezes right after introductions but right before the puck is dropped. I also cant bring up the dashboard or do anything. The lights stay green and the xbox 360 does not shut off, it just freezes. I have to get up and manually shut it off and reboot it in order to do anything. I am assuming something is wrong with some of the hardware in the xbox but im nervous to take it apart. However, i am pretty good with technical stuff and if given decent directions i can fix most things. Please give me some suggestions.

Hi Mattrobi8886, It sounds like your console is heading for a 3 red light error, I know from experience that freezing is not good and probably means there is trouble on the way.
Adding extra cooling to the XBOX or doing an X-Clamp replacement fix works in these situations. Getting the console apart is pretty straight forward and is quite easy, I've done it plenty of times, visit the Tutorials sections here http://360solutions.eamped.com/ for instructions on taking the 360 apart.
xbox-scene.com also have allot of X-Clamp tutorials. I hope this helps in some way, leave me a message on the forum if you need more pointers.
Please rate if at all useful, thanks!
