Whenever I turn on my xbox 360, I can navigate the Dashboard fine, and any game I loads gets through the loading screens and opening cut screens...but at the point where I take physical control of the character (I've tried CoD4 and NCAA 08) the game freezes. Pressing the dashboard button does nothing. The image on screen is frozen the sound doesn't actually cut out, it just fades.

If once you put a game in the disc tray but it is does not load, you still
have the dashborad on the screen or its just says "Reading" then "Open
tray". You'll need to check first that you didn't set your Xbox 360 to
boot to the dashboard. To check this turn on the Xbox 360 with no
discs in the disc tray. Go to the System section then Console
Settingsthen Start up make sure it's set to
Disc not Dashborad. If you select disc the Xbox 360 will
play the disc when you turn it on. But if you select dashboard the Xbox
360 will stay on the dashboard when you turn it on.
If you did so
and still not loading, try another thing. Make sure this issue isn't
with this disc only. Try some other discs and DVDs if you have to make
sure is it an issue with this disc specifically and by then you'll need
to get another disc or it's the console itself. You'll need also to
make sure that your Xbox 360 is not overheating and it's in a well
ventilated place. Check that the date and time are set correctly. To
check this go on the System section then Console
Settings then Clock then Date and
Time. If it's not set to the correct date and time, set them
correctly. The last step to try is to unplug the Hard Drive and try
some discs without the Hard Drive attached just to test is it the Hard
Drive or the Xbox 360 itself faulty. If you did so and it worked without
the Hard Drive, it would be obvious that it is the Hard Drive's issue.
