Picture keeps freezing and making a load buzzing noise.

This is usually caused by a cold solder joint underthe GPU, which causes overheating, but your Xbox 360 hasn't recognized it yet,thus it has not displayed the 3RROD error (3 Red ring of death, red lights). Itwill sometime in the future if it remains unfixed.

You have a few options:

1) If it is within 3 years of its manufacture date (printed on the back of the console).You can call Microsoft and send it in, and they may replace it for you forfree. I know they do this for 3RROD Xboxes, but they may not be as quick toreplace it for free if it hasn't displayed the error yet.

2) Do the "X-Clamp" fix yourself following a guide from hereor here.

3) There are many repair sites that would be more than happy tohave you send in your Xbox 360 to have it repaired.

My xbox 360 is not loading up..i think its the fan that makes a funny noise when u turn it on and the red light comes on

If you have the red lights coming on you will need to get it repaired, the problems are caused by the motherboard overheating.

You can actually do this yourself or you can send it in to have it repaired.

Make sure you have all the clamps on the chips tight. If one pops loose it will cause this.

Help.. My xbox has 3 reds lights

This is a common problem from the Xbox 360.

The only way to fix this problem is to call Microsoft or email them. Its something to do with the hardware failure. Its over heated. Their is one way to fix it but temporary.
Its called the towel trick.

First, Unplug your xbox.
Then wrap it around with Heavy towels dont expose anything on the xbox 360. Cover everything.
Then plug in the xbox 360 while the towels are around it. After you do all that you wait 15 minutes. Then unwrap the towel from the xbox 360. It should be very hot. Let it cool down for 2 minutes then plug everything in and it should work.
But I hope this helps you.

Good luck!

Xbox 360 is on , but no Picture/Sound

THE TOWEL ONLY HEATS IT UP MORE AND THE 2 X CLAMPS INSIDE WILL VIBRATE ONLY 2 MAKE THE MAIN XBOX CHIP 2 COME OUT OF ITS PLACE.... SO THIS IS WHAT U DO!!! First Get a Screw driver and take out the covers of the xbox and ull see a metal sheeting. Then take out all the screws from the metal board. then take out the other things (take out the fan last) Then If its the graphics chip thats broken then u need a new one but if its out of place, replace it and put the xbox bak 2gether. The  the prob shud not happen again. This is what happened 2 me only last week. it shud only take 30 mins 2 fix.
But the other prob could be the cord cause the cord might be old faulty or broken cause my friend had dat prob.

if you mean the 3 red lights, simple. You will need to have the xbox 360 running, 2 or so towels, and some time. First keep the xbox 360 running, then put the towels over the 360 (make sure to cover the vents). Keep it on for around 20 mins. Then after take off the towels, and let the system cool for another 20 mins. This should let it run for atleast another 2 hours.
