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!

Brand new game, Xbox continually gives me read errors.


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

My xbox won't read disk, nothing is wrong with the disks.


The reason that this happens is because the sensors on the back of the DVD drive have overheated.

When you overheat the Xbox it realligns the motherboard and the soldering gets supple again and will work for a little while, however this will not be permanent.

You will need to send it in to get it fixed or you can fix it yourself using a proven Xbox 360 Repair guide

Xbo 360, after 5 minutes, 2 rrod


I think it might be false orverheating too, or a dead GPU atleast. I can suggest replacing the graphics card since it sounds like you repaired the system yourself anyway. There could also be a problem with the motherboard causing the GPU error.

5mins after turning back on e 73 is there


E73 error dont have anything to do with your harddrive. This is what E73 is E73: General Hardware Error: Ethernet port... this error is caused by a problem with the Ethernet port.
But I would almost guarantee it is the solder under the GPU which is the common problem for all overheated xbox360 systems. Wecan fix it for you if your interested please contact us for free estimate. xbox360fixer@verizon.net

New games for my xbox 360 overheat it.


All of the new games require more work from your graphics card, which without the new heat sync from microsoft, will over heat very quickly. You need to send you xbox to microsoft to have them fix it before you eventually recieve an error code or the 3 red lights or death.

PSP Wont play games, and is going slow on other things! [HELP]


Hi,
you,ve damaged the UMD Drive, or Laser.
hence disk read errors.
you,ll have to obtain a replacement UMD Drive ( e-bay )
Or alternatively you could look into firmware flashing and pandoras Battery.
This way you can play games from a memory stick.

Wont read discs


If it only does this for this one game, you may have a defective game disc, it happens. Often, if you have just recently purchased it, you can return it to the store and tell them that it was defective and get a new one. If not, you can always try cleaning it though I doubt that's the problem.
nintendo.com says "If after reading the above information you are still unable to play a game disc, please call 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options."
