Xbox 360 freezes

Last night I was playing my 360 then it froze and I turned it off to restart it. Once I turned it back on at the bottom red lights started flashing so I thought it just needed to cool off. So later today turned it on and it worked started playing and right before it frozed it made a beeping noise.

Now each time I turn it on just seconds after it makes a beeping noise and it freezes. Please someone help me

My xboxes lights turned red

If you are getting freeze ups then you need to let your console cool down and fix it - you can send it in for repair or you can use a good guide to fix it from home

Xbox fixed itself from 3 lights but other problem

When someone say that his/her Xbox is having 3 red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

Xbox 360 freezing

There are two possible solutions to this issue. One the data that you downloaded either got corrupted during transfer somehow or during a resent save. You should delete all the iformation off your hard drive and start fresh. If this doesnt work try takeing off your hard drive and playing a game if it deosnt freeze you will need to either try the delete method or get a new HD.

If this doesnt solve your issue then it is very possible that your system is headed for the red rings of death. My system was fried after i had played assasins creed. It would freeze up and create this checker pattern on my back ground my system shortly after went red ring.

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
