I believe this is a very common problem, for the 3 rings of death if you search google you can find out what exactly is wrong with it, (think you have to press the wireless button from memory and it give a series of blinks which in turn tells you what it is).
I think microsoft have given a 3yr warranty on all 360s as this is a common problem.

3 Red lights occur when the GPU and CPU overheats. You need to have an expert look at it such as me or send it back to microsoft if still under warranty. Computer Repair skills are required and various parts as well. There are may free repair guides on the internet as well, but be careful if you don't know what you are doing DON'T DO IT!
