I'm guessing that the power light and three of the four quarters around it are red, also? This is called the Red Ring of Death. What this usually means is that the heat sink on your processor or graphics processor has become dislodged. If your console is less than three years old, it is likely under warranty. Microsoft should fix it for you if you pay for shipping. You can also try this link for other MS answers (

If your console is over 3 years old, there are other ways you can try to fix it. Just Google RROD, and you'll find lots of ideas that may wreck your console or might fix it temporarily.

My recommendation is that you call around to local video game stores and see if they have a trade in program. You can keep your hard drive and plug it into a new console and you haven't lost any of your game progress or achievements.
