My xbox 360 is freezing up after about 5 min of playing any games and then last nite 3 of the red bars lit up around the power button but not all 4 . What's the problem?

First of all you should scan your Windows registry which is the root cause of computer freezing. you have to repair your registry using reliable registry cleaner and PC optimizing tool. When there is error in registry then its data is disorganized. And this data is not in good condition to run games at an acceptable speed.

I haven't used my xbox 360 in about 2 years. It has very low play time on it. Now when I try to play a game it freezes up. No red light of death...just screen freezing.

when I see this problem 90% of the time it's the G.P.U. desoldering
itself from the main board . The G.P.U. will need to be resolders (reflowed ) cost will very 60.00-80.00 so shop around for someone

Xbox 360 problem with scratching disks

If your xbox is making that ring around your disc chances are you are playing your xbox standing up, if you lay the xbox down on its side this may fix the problem atleast it did for me. And as for the the midnight club freezing all the time it is still doing this on my xbox, copy the game to hard drive, and it should deffinitly limit the game from freezing, it worked for me.

Game freezes after playing for a while but no red rings appear

Games freeze for two reasons. Overheating and the hard drive locking up. If you have your games installed, you most likely eliminated the overheating problem.

Since you are not getting Red Ring, it probably isn't overheating. That leaves the hard drive. Turn of the console and unplug it. Remove the hard drive. Now is a good time to clean any dust from the connectors or vents. Reattach and play. Some games like Fable 2, Fallout 3, and others are more prone to freezing when accessing the hard drive that others. If it is freezing more times than not, you have an issue with the hard drive.

hi there, The scratches on your disks are usually caused by the laser Assembly on the Hitachi dvd-rom. If the console freezes on other games it may be over heating. Please contact Microsoft for warranty support and get the system repair. If you are no longer able to get warranty support please contact me and i can assist you with part numbers, where to order, and required tools. Good luck
