When someone say that his/her Xbox 360 is having 3 flashing red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

Those are called the Red Rings of Death, or 3 Red lights. They're pretty "feared" by most xbox360ers, as they seem to show that your xbox360 is *dead*. Try calling microsoft, because if it's in the warranty, you can trade it for a new one. I know it might be annoying, but it's the most simple solution...

Xbox 360s makes a weird sound when it reads a disc and shuts down


Sounds like the drive is very dirty, or going out. Try cleaning it, or just replace it.

My xbox 360s isn't working


In very rare instances I believe that the dvd drive of your xbox 360 might have been disconnected.In this case,it dispays an "open tray" message.For this you will have to open your 360 but please take it to the dealer if you are still protected by warranty.Good luck.Thanks for reading.

Can't run Halo 3 at all.


Next to cleaning your CD good, try also getting the laser eye cleaned as well, this might help. Also, if the disk is too scratched up then it will not read it, the scratches might be too deep.
