Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
The graphics are freezing. The problem persists and I can only turn the console off a the main power. A red ring has also appeared but not all the time.
What type of ring? 1 quadrant? 3?
If it's NOT the 3 ROL (aka the "red lights of death" which usually means something wrong with the console's motherboard), it maybe something as simple as a loose video connection. Take apart EVERYTHING (including the harddrive).
If it still freezes after the reconnection, first try performing disk drive maintenance, which is located in the memory section of the options menu (goto my xbox and press right on the analog stick until you reach SYSTEM SETTINGS). Once you've done the disk maintenance/cache clear try playing some more to see if it freezes again.
If it is STILL freezing try playing it w/o the harddrive. Not all games can work w/o the harddrive, but if you can verify that it's the harddrive causing this then you know it's the HD and not the console it self.
That's all I have. Hope this helps,

This happens because the GPU and the CPU are overheating and as it overheats the motherboard starts to bend ever so slightly.
Once the soldering looses connection you get this error.
To fix it you need to send it in or repair it yourself.
Hope this helps!
