This is most likely a over heating issue of the cpu.If you are familiar with electronics you can try to open the case and remove the covers from the cpu and the other ic's.clean the old thermal paste from the cpu and the cover and apply a new layer of high quality thermal paste.This sometimes elevates the overheating problem.(CAUTION) only due this if your warranty is over because this will void any warranty.

The red ring of death


This has happened to me with 2 consoles so I know this problem well... the sad thing is there is nothing you can do to fix it. The red ring of death means it's a hard drive error, Microsoft has made it so that only they can fix or replace harddrives. Call the Microsoft hotline and they will tell you where to bring it to get it fixed. For me they just gave me a brand new one even though the warranty had expired, but this was several years ago and I live in Hong Kong so it's probably different in the US.

Why does my xbox 360 kepps freezing when i play games?


360's tend to lock up before the "red rings of death". You get this when the system overheats and has problems with the solder coming loose. Mine took a little over a weak before it got the red rings after it kept freezing after a few min.'s of playing.

It could be overheating because the fan is not getting enough air out. try cleaning the console itself outside and using can of compressed air to get any buildup in the vent holes and fan cleared. There are a few FAQS on this site to learn about a few tricks.

feel free to comment if you have any questions. Hope this helped and remember you have a three year waranty on your xbox for the red ring and E74 error!

When i play xboxlive it will freez then the screen will be green or red then i have to turn my xbox help


If this is what happens each time you use your your console, it might be broken. Does it have any red rings around the console's display? If that's the case, check out these links by Microsoft corresponding to the amount of red rings on your console:
1 red ring
2 red rings
3 red rings
4 red rings

They extended the warranty to three years from the purchase date for the three rings. Give them a call at 1-800-4MYXBOX and see if they can't help solve your problem. Hopefully you're still under warranty. Good Luck!

Xbox 360 problem


If you can still HEAR sound, but can't see. Check your Audio Video Cable.

It's the colorful one (red, white, yellow) (red, blue green, white, red)

Make sure the connections are secure into the back of the TV as well as the connection to the back of the Xbox 360.
