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.

If that doesn't work just call Microsoft. You can find their number on the back of game manuals. They will walk you threw the steps, a week or so later you will get a box, ship it off, and will receive it back in a total of about a month.

This may sound weird, but if you cover the entire xbox in towls, making sure to cover all the exhast vents, turn it on, then wait 10-15min; when you unrap it, turn it on again and it should start up. Keep in mind that this is usually just a temporary fix.

PS3 TURNS ON,GREEN LIGHT FOLLOWED BY YELLOW LIGHT THEN RED FLASHING LIGHT,FANS COME ON BUT WITHIN 3 TO 5 SECONDS ALL SWITCHES OFF TO A RED FLASHING LIGHT


Your hardrive has probably crashed. I have been trying to fix mine and after weeks of studying, i found out I need a new video card. If you have demos then my problem may be yours too. If you are trying to play games and it crashes, then it's the video card. The only game that works with a broken video card is Street Fighter 4, but you can't save. Visit this link for better instruction on how to fix non-video card problems. I hope it helps!

Playstation 3 shuts down as game loads


Generally there are a couple of things that can cause this. Bad installs of games, and more commonly thermal damage. The bad news is it will probably have to be repaired and Sony generally charges about $150 for that. Hopefully its under warranty? =)

There is some talk that the new firmware download may have altered physical parts that control the temperature inside the unit. Although that's just heresay i've been hearing more and more people thinking this is the case.

X box crashing no red lights


when it crashes does it turn off the whole system or does any lights come on?

sounds like the the processor is over heating and its causing the system to shut down before it burned up the board. basicly your thermal paste between your processor and the heatsink isnt doing its job. there could be a crack on it might have just degraded over time.
