This is a fault with the graphics processor unit (gpu) your console needs stripping down and new heatsink paste appying to the gpu chip, this is basically the same fix for rrod so there are plenty of guides on this site or on youtube if you feel like having a go yourself.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

My wii keeps freezing up in middle of playing black ops and making a loud buzzing sound, how can I fix it?


It can be one of 2 things. Make sure its not getting to hot. Keep the vents clean. Make sure the game disk is not scratched or damaged in any way. If it only happens on that one game in the same spot its most likely the cd.

I have been playing star ocean the last hope and now my xbox 360 freezes constantly. Help! I deleted and reloaded the game and it still freezes. I thought it was the game but now Oblivion is freezing too.


The reason why your Xbox 360 keeps on freezing is because you will soon encounter the red ring of death or the E74 error. to simply solve this error check out this vid

Fallout 3 xbox 360 freeze


If your playing on a disk clean the disk with clean cotton or a clean cotton clothe and the disk reader with a vacuum with brush head. Installing it on a hard disk would also sometimes prevent the game from frequently freezing. Freezing randomly or at a certain scene is a glitch on the game. Hopefully it will be patched soon.

The graphics are freezing. The problem persists


What type of ring? 1 quadrant? 3?

If it's NOT the 3 ROL (aka the "red lights of death" which usually means something wrong with the console's motherboard), it maybe something as simple as a loose video connection. Take apart EVERYTHING (including the harddrive).

If it still freezes after the reconnection, first try performing disk drive maintenance, which is located in the memory section of the options menu (goto my xbox and press right on the analog stick until you reach SYSTEM SETTINGS). Once you've done the disk maintenance/cache clear try playing some more to see if it freezes again.

If it is STILL freezing try playing it w/o the harddrive. Not all games can work w/o the harddrive, but if you can verify that it's the harddrive causing this then you know it's the HD and not the console it self.

That's all I have. Hope this helps,
Bill

My XBox 360 freezes


Well if these spot are consistent on certain disks time after time it is most likely a scratch, smudge or defect on the disk. check them all for scratches and if they are dirty try to clean them very gently with a soft cloth. This would only really concern your actual console if it occurs during heavy game loading or at the same spot during a load. Try cleaning all your disks and get back to me. GL

Xbox Freezing On all games


I dont know why it is happening, but the same happened to me. This kept happening until i got the red ring of death. No matter what, the red ring is covered by warranty as long as it isnt opened up.

Console problem


I'm having the same issue. Doesn't matter what game disk is in, after a little while of playing, the screen goes black with the message that disk can not be read. Eject disk and power off, then power back on and re insert disk. No error code is given. I just bought this console yesterday and this error has happened probably 10 times already. Wanted to get online and see if this was a common wii problem or I just possible got a bad one.
