One of the ways to correct for the failed solder connections and to reball a device is to use the EZReball soldering preform . These are pretty easy to use as seen by the demo video here

When i play xboxlive it will freez then the screen will be green or red then i have to turn my xbox help

If this is what happens each time you use your your console, it might be broken. Does it have any red rings around the console's display? If that's the case, check out these links by Microsoft corresponding to the amount of red rings on your console:
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

They extended the warranty to three years from the purchase date for the three rings. Give them a call at 1-800-4MYXBOX and see if they can't help solve your problem. Hopefully you're still under warranty. Good Luck!

During game play,game shuts off and two red rings appear/

its very possible your xbox is having overheating problems. I had the same issue with mine, and i had to send it back to microsoft 2 different times, but after that it worked fine. I would try sending it back to microsoft, and see what happens from there.

Cutting off 2 mins into the game

That happens to me once in a while too. What you do, try taking the disk drive out and run it under hot water for about 20 seconds. Then, dry it thoroughly. Put it back in and it should work.

3 flashing red light on console

uh well u got the three red lights of death it sounds like... and i also had those. while im no expert on this stuff, iv seen that u can put ur 360 sideways on a table, wrap it in towels(and i mean like 2 towels, wrap it up completely) and turn it on and leave it on for about 10-15 mins. just make sure a fire doesnt start in those 10-15 mins(believe me you dont want to call the fire company and tell them u started a fire wrapping ur game console in towels), ok then after u done waitin turn it off, unwrap it, and let it sit until it is cool, and try turning it on. it might work, its supposed to work because those three red lights mean that theres a malfunction in the 360 itself, such as wires or sumthin, and extreme heat may melt the wires and fix the problem, how i dont know but theres so many stories of ppl who have pulled it off
