I have had my xbox 360 for less than a year now. I have sent it in previously for freezing on me and not allowing me to take out one of my games. Now I am having more issues with this system. Whenever I attempt to play a game, the system will restart on me every 10-20 minutes. It is very frustrating. It never allows me time to play anything. Also when this does happen I have to let the system sit for about an hour just so I can get my game out of the system. When I attempt to get the game out the little green power button in the middle just blinks.
It's definetly a massive multiple hardware failure. I recommend you take it back to the retailer to be replaced. If your warranty is still active, that is. Getting it refurbished again could cause more damage to it, so a replacement really would be the best solution.

Go on xbox.com, and it is one of the first FAQ's. It will direct you to fill out your info and MS will send you an empty box and a UPS label. Follow their directions, and you should have a new box in a couple of weeks for free.
I have an older 360 that was doing the same thing. It was purchased in 2007. We just bought one for our daughter this past Christmas and hers hasn't done it yet. The newer Xbox 360 is a lot louder than my old one. I just sent my old one in to be serviced due to freeze up, false clean disc comments, and a wobbleing/rattleing noise when disc was starting and stopping. If yours is still covered under warranty I would send it back. I purchased the extended warranty, thankfully, for 2 years after the manuf. warranty. I don't know if you can purchase it after you purchase the Xbox 360 or not. You may want to check into it. IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY. I got it on both systems, mine and my daughters. The big thing is acting on the problem ASAP after you start noticing it before the warranty runs out!
