Hi, I had this same problem. I would turn the system on and not to much time after that the video would go checked and blurry. I could reset and it would come back on but shortly after that it would do it again. Sometime I would even get it to play awhile before it checkered. Finally one day I put a movie in and just let it play. It finally went to the 3 rings of death. When I reset it it would work for awhile and eventually lead to 3 rings of death. I decided to do the x-clamp fix on it because for Microsoft to cover it on the extended warranty they will ask you at tech support to turn it off and on a couple times while they are on the phone. Since it doesn't do it right away I figured what the hell..cann't lose by trying. I did the fix and didn't even have to heat it to reflow the chip. Just applied the fix and turned it on and its never happened again. Works like new again.

Hi,
check the A/V out socket from console to TV.
If it,s in a unit or cupboard near other electrical Appliances.
1:- Is it overheating.
2:- is it picking up electrical interference from another unsuppressed source. this could be a poor wiring connection on another plug, in the same socket or board as the 360.
Try it on another TV.
Change the output lead, or swap cable output style. i.e from Scart to A/V out type. ( red-white-yellow )
Hope this helps you solve your issue.
If non of the above works, it,s looking towards motherboard issues. ( Graphics Processor )

Local help is wrong. Windows is "crashing" during a "normal" start-up. Reinstalling Windows might fix the problem. Or, it could be "bad" RAM -- remove all-but-one of the RAM sticks, and try again to boot. If it still fails, remove that stick, and insert one of the "removed" sticks, and try again.

Will it boot into "safe mode" ?

How to repair hard drive


<span>Instructions</span> Things You'll Need: <ul> <li> <span>Operating software installation or build CD</span> </li> <li> <span>Boot-up disc</span> </li> <li> <span>System restore CD</span> </li> <li> <span>Backup tape</span> </li></ul> <ol> <li> Look for tell-tale signs that your computer is about to crash or fail. Extreme slowness, repeated blue screen and noise or clicking are sometimes signs that your computer hard drive is about to crash. When you hear the sound of clicking, scraping or grinding, immediately turn off or shut down your computer. Doing so will prevent any loss of data.<br /> </li> <li> Power down and then power up. Sometimes, hard drive crashes can be easily recovered by doing a power shutdown of the computer. Then, after waiting for a couple of minutes, power it back up again. The initial hard drive crash may not be too serious, but if it happens often, start performing a full system backup, if you haven't been doing so, to be able to recover your data should the inevitable happen.<br /> </li> <li> <span> <a><img src="repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.3-120X120.jpg" /></a> jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep3 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a04/8f/3a/repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.3-800X800.jpg'); }); PC cable or component connection </span> Ensure that your hard drive and other internal components are seated properly. If Steps 1 and 2 do not work, you may need to open your computer's CPU to check on some of the drive connections. Sometimes connections get dislodged, especially if you move your computer box often. The symptom will manifest as if the hard drive has crashed, giving you a "disk error" when you try to boot up your computer. First, turn off your computer and unplug it. Then remove the case of your computer box. Press on each connector to connect it properly. Put the cover back again, plug the computer and power it back up.<br /> </li> <li> <span> <a><img src="repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.4-120X120.jpg" /></a> jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep4 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a04/8f/3a/repair-hard-drive-crashes-1.4-800X800.jpg'); }); Boot from CD drive with a boot disc </span> Insert your boot disc and try to boot up your computer using the disc. Once you are able to do so, you can reinstall your operating system. After installing your software, proceed to perform data recovery using your ghost CD or backup.<br /> </li> <li> Use an emergency repair disc to get your computer to work again. Then restore from the last known good configuration.<br /> </li> <li> Reinstall your operating system using the installation or system restore CD that came with your computer when you first purchased it. It will take you through a series of steps that include formatting your hard drive, which will then erase your data. Do this as a last resort.<br /> </li> <li> Recover your data by using a restore and recovery software or using your most recent backup after you have reinstalled the operating system in the previous step.<br /> </li> <li> Reinstall your applications that did not come with your computer when you bought it. Some examples would be Adobe Photoshop, anti-virus software and movie-making software.<br /> </li></ol> jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); <span>Tips & Warnings</span> <ul> <li> Call technical support if you are unsure of what to do. They can walk you through the important steps. You can also take your computer to a PC technician who, for a fee, will do a system restore and data recovery for you.</li> <li> Make it a habit, even if your computer is healthy, to do a complete backup so your important data will not be lost.</li> <li> Never attempt to open your computer without first powering it off to avoid being electrocuted.</li> <li> Do not open your hard drive case; the components are so sensitive that even a single speck of dust may erase your data.</li></ul>

It can have boot virus and when booting it finds your antivirus soft and if cant stop antivirus then calls "crash" screens, also sometimes real crashes heppened vith driver incompatible or incorrect parameter stored. If you have any LIVE Windows CD or linux boot from it anc check for viruses, also make disk check with disk utility. If not corrected windows must be reinstalled. If you havent try try "last good known configuration " from bootup screen, to call boot press F8.
