Xbox 360 locks up while loading

My husbands xbox 360 has never run correctly. He has 3 games. The Madden football game works. His car chase game freezes while loading. His new Cabela's trophy buck game freezes while loading. He never has it on more than 1 hour while he tries to get it to work. He has very little time to try and tinker with it, and of course is frustrated. He has had it over a year and wants to throw it out. any suggestions?

Madden 11 freezing on xbox 360

Try some other games. See if it is only the Madden game. Do any other games freeze? Are your fans loud? Is there a lot of heat coming from the back?

Can you connect to XBOX Live to get firmware updates??
I assume you always update when the game gives you the oppurtunity, these updates include playability issues, glitches, etc.

Ensure that your Xbox 360 is located in a well ventilated area. Overheating can cause all sort of issues.

New games for my xbox 360 overheat it.

All of the new games require more work from your graphics card, which without the new heat sync from microsoft, will over heat very quickly. You need to send you xbox to microsoft to have them fix it before you eventually recieve an error code or the 3 red lights or death.

Online Halo 3 Unreadable disc message

A lot of people are having the same problem with this game and other games like madden. I have seen one solution that may help you and that is to lay your console horizontally instead of vertically. This has help some people but not others. It seems to be a problem with the cdrom in the 360. Not the game itself. On newer models of the 360 this problem does not occur as microsoft have upgraded the drive.
If your 360 is still under warrenty I would send it back for repair or replacement, I know this is annoying but it may be your only solution.

I hope this helps
