There is likely a capacitor that is overheated and causing you troubles.. Look for any swollen capacitors or burn marks on system board. You can also use an ohmmeter to test them (25-30 ohms and 5 volts of power)

My xbox keeps freezing while playing

If your Xbox keeps on freezing up during games then this is normally the start of the red lights, it happens when the GPU and the CPU lose connection, to fix it you need to send it in or you can use a recomended Xbox 360 Repair guide to fix it.

My Xbox keeps switching its self off after five minutes and then two red lights are coming on on the console. Do you know what would be causing this?

Yes I do . Some times when console take a fall or get bump hard
it will dislodged the heat sink from the C.P.U. breaking the thermal
seal . Then the console will over heat in 1-5 min .

The Fix is simple . open the unit up and press down evenly
and firmly on the large heat sink to re-seat it to the C.P.U.
leave it open turn it on and repeat if it over heats again ,
sometime it takes a few attempts .
