Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I was playing my xbox 360 last night and it had just shut off on me. The fan did remain running. I looked at the console and in the circle of lights around the power button, the two lights on the left remained on and were blinking red. I figured it might have over heated so i had turned it off for the rest of the night. About 10 hours later, i go to turn it on and it just goes into the mode it was in last night. Any suggestions?
