Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Freezing In Game

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.

    Thanks...but now, instead of just freezing, I guess it recognized that I'm another poor, poor victim of the Red Ring of Death.

Games will not load on xbox 360


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 Settings then 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.

Take care.

My xbox 360 says to insert game into an xbox 360

Your drive needs a pro cleaning.

In the meantime, when this screen comes up, power off the system with the game in the drive, count to 5, and turn the system back on, it should have loaded and be on the dashboard.
