Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hey guys, freezing usually means that there is a problem with your Spacers due to them not doing their job correctly because they have been worn out over time. The spacers job is to make sure that the device that it covers keeps from overheating and touching the outside of the shell. If one of your spacers is damaged, it could fool your xbox into thinking it is not overheating. This causes the fan to stay at a low setting and not speed up towards its full function of cooling the processor and the motherboard. If thats the case, your xbox will freeze up because the process will stall due to it not getting sufficient air coolant and because the heat is building up rather then exiting the console. If this problem persists, you are on your way to having the 3 RED LIGHTS OF DEATH. If you are out of warranty, my best suggestion would be to open your console up and change the spacers with say a rubber eraser 1.5cm wide by 1.2 cm tall and this would eliminate the sticky tack substance that is on your console now. The rubber will better ground your console and get your box running in no time. There are many tutorials on how to properly take apart your xbox 360 and i advise you to go to the one with the most diagrams and pictures to visually help you.
Hope this has helped
P.S - You might want to try to take your power brick and make sure all the cables are fastened, as well as make sure that is in an open area where it can be vented well.
