Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

2 Answers

My Xbox 360 freezes up after about 10 mins of running, then when I restart it, it has the 3 red rings. I know how to fix the red rings, but everytime I do it, it again just freezes up. What else is the issue?

    No, I open it up, take the x clamps off, remove the heatsinks, clean off the cpu and gpu completely. Then I put on the Arctic Silver 5 and smooth it out. Put back on the clean heatsinks with new screws, nylon and regular washers. Let it heat up with no fans running until it switches from 3 to 2 red lights. Let cool. Make sure screws are fully tightened, then replug everything back in.

If you are having freeze up issues then you must make sure you stop the heat build up to the CPU and the GPU and recenter the board!

Games and demos would freeze after about 10-30 min (or sometimes in less time) of gameplay. Now the Xbox 360 turns on but nothing but a blank tv screen and everybody's favorite red ring of death. What...


Go on xbox.com, and it is one of the first FAQ's. It will direct you to fill out your info and MS will send you an empty box and a UPS label. Follow their directions, and you should have a new box in a couple of weeks for free.

if it has been sent back 3 times already then phone xbox support and tell then this, they will probably offer to replace it with a new unit or give you some freebies etc and get it repaired again ;)

Xbox 360 screen freezing


Salutations nofear2313,

The "Ring of Death" is a known issue with Xbox 360's and Microsoft has actually extended their manufacture’s warranty to 3 years to cover this type of problem. I would contact 1-800-4MYXBOX to see how to get the unit serviced.

Hope this helps.
