This is a common fault with the 360, it says that its a "general hardware failure" which could mean anything
really. In truth its the lead free solder that cracks with so much heat and as a result the Xbox 360 fails
causing the 3rrod (3 red rings of death) or e74 etc

You will need to get a 3rrod repair kit or get someone to fix it for you, there are guides available on the
internet. Im in the middle of producing one right now that i will make available free of charge for all fixya
members.

Freezes /lockups cd drive cutting circuls in your disk
is 90% of the time caused buy the C.P.U. losing
connections to the main board .

The fix is to have the C.P.U. re-flowed to
the main board and then properly clamped down

or if its still under warranty send it in to Microsoft
texas repair center for a replacement.


hope that help a little.

Only game that freezes up is call of duty world at war


Eject the disc and have a look at the back to see if there are any scratches, markings, dirt, or anything else that might be preventing your console from reading it properly.

Once cleaned, re-insert the disc and see how it goes. If the game freezes in the same place/area/timing as previously it could be due to an error on the disc, a glitch, or a corruption in your Xbox 360 cache or game save on the HD, and I can help walk you through the process of cleaning the corruption.

When i play a game on my xbox 360 the screen will freeze at a random time, sometimes half way through the game, sometimes when i turn the xbox on, sometimes when the game is loading. it makes a strange...


This is a problem with the gpu (graphics chip) the console will need stripping down and new thermal paste applied or the motherboard needs re-balling. sorry but there is no real quick fix for this.
Hope this helps.

Freezing and three n two rings


you need to go over the mainboard with a heatgun in a circular motion 2-3 inches away from it. pay attention to around the cpu, gpu and memory chips and you will end up re-seating the solder and should fix this better for you. i dont know what you did to fix it in the first place but i can say that errors like the 3rrod really benefit from taking your time when doing the fix and making sure everything is covered.

Freezes up on downloads and game play


The fastest way to resolve this problem is to do a quick format to your PS3. After that try it again. If it freezes or says it's corrupted again, then you need a new hard drive.

DVD player freezes


If it's a very cheap unit, it's possibly because the machine can't process the information quickly or efficiently enough, thusly causing the picture to freeze up while the processing catches up with it. Friend has a $30 unit, which happens to constantly.
