Does it only happen when trying to play games? or does it also happen even when your only on the dashboard? if only on playing games try to clear the cache of the hard drive by going to the system section on the dashboard, click on memory and while on memory and you can see the logo for the hard drive, click "Y" for Device Options and a new window will pop up. in that window you will see an option for "Rename" or "Reformat". do not select any of those just click these follow sequence: X, X, LB, RB, X, X and it should prompt you to undergo System Maintenance. Just accept the System Maintenance and it should clear the cache of your hard drive. if issue still persist it might be that your console is already inhibiting symptoms of the "3 red lights" issue and you might need to send the console in for repair.

Sounds like its over heating.. iv had this happen a couple times on my own system. You might try blowing it out with canned air. be sure to unplug the power to the unit first. If this doesnt help you might have a fan out.

other things to try:

I would suggest opening the case as a last option as its very difficult to open and requires special tools.

The game keeps freezing.


Assuming you've already cleaned the disc, all you can do is delete the game data. In the crossbar (XMB), go to Game->Game Data Utility. This will delete any patches or game data that have been installed since you first put the disc in. Then PS3 will re-install/re-download the game data. This will not affect Save Games, as those are stored in the Save Data Utility.

Brand new mercenaries 2 freezes at the main screen on my xbox 360. what do i do?


You need to rent borrow or buy a cheap copy of army of 2 v1 the problem is ea servers. But if you get the above game put it in sign in to ea servers to play an online game mercs 2 will then work fine.

You "might" get it to work by downloading the army of two demo but if that fails you need the game.

Madden 09 keeps freezing on my new xbox 360


I have the same problem with most of the EA sports games, and here's the solution. Stop buying these $60 drink coasters that EA has the balls to keep dishing out to us, and they'll either go under, or spend some time on their turds for a change. Some of the things that happen in their sports titles make me wonder if the French-Canadian A-holes have ever even seen a game or a race, for that matter. Anyway, the only way to stop the freezing is to do what I do.....throw them in the trash where they belong, and stop purchasing them.

EA Sports Games and the 360


Well it can that the GPU is overheating, that happens very often and I will tell why. Microsoft is so cheap that sometimes they forget to put the thermal compound on the heatsink that covers the GPU, so the poor GPU is force to the max and overheats easily after long periods of gaming. Thats why it freezes on the middle of the game. That was very common on xbox machines made before the launch of HALO 3, the new models do come with the compound but just a little bit of it, what a I do is that a use thermal compound like artic or other brand a put a even amount on the heatsink so it covers the entire GPU, then overheatings problems disappears. Hope it helps
