You might check out the Informative article at Ezinearticles.com to fix the freezing problem as the article gives the information about a DIY guide, (though i don't remember the name of the site) but you can check the article from http://ezinearticles.com/?Xbox-360-Freezing-Fix&id=1527369

If it worked at the store, then it is a problem with your TV... it probably cant support the HD. what kind of TV do you have?

I found the problem. I had the remote for the controller plugged in. What an idiot I am. As soon as I unplugged it, my 360 ran great. Thanks for the help, sorry to waste everyones time.

I play my xbox 360 and it freezes at the beginning part when it loads. It never goes to the dashboard.i took out my hardrive and played it again and it works,if I put my harddrive in, it freezes.


Your harddrive is corrupted you would need to reformat it but this will wipe everything that was stored on it. You'll have to start it obviously with the drive out and install it then go to system settings/memory to reformat

Screen freeze.


two work-around methods for those consumers who are experiencing the "freeze" issue: 1) Remove or disable the HDD
or,
2) Load three different Xbox 360 games to the main title screen of each game then load Major League Baseball 2K6 on Xbox 360. All three Xbox 360 games must be completely different before loading Major League Baseball 2K6.

Every time i put my brand new (purchased two hours ago) call of duty black ops game, the screen goes to the XBOX 360 screen, and freezes there. the hard drive i have for my console is also brand new, well...


firstly its refurbished so you have to be careful because it may have had problems in the past, it referring to your hard drive by the way. ad secondly maybe its just your black ops disc? try playing black ops on another xbox console and if it freezes than its not your console its just the game =) then get a replacement and dont worry.

My gateway MX6927 freezes


If you can't get run the recovery cd's and you know the cd drive is good then it has to be the hard drive causing the lockups cause that means data isn't able to be copied over to it.

My xobx freezes in the startup screen when the hard drive is in place, if the hard drive is not in place the xbox starts normally. what is the problem?


There is probably something wrong with your hard drive or connection, as far as I know, the hard drive itself is not serviceable, (though I would love to be proven wrong if I am). If you can, try to get your hands on another hard drive, maybe borrow one from a friend, and try it on your console. If it works then your hard drive is toast, if not then you have a problem with the connection to you console. I don't have a repair proceder for the console connection problem as I have not yet experianced that particular issue and was unable to find someone who has, try calling 1.800.4my.xbox if a replacement hard drive does not work.

Good luck.

Xbox 360 Starts when DVD SATA cable is unplugged...


Have you re-connected the sata cable the correct way round,if you put it upside down you will have problems, connect it the other way around and see if it works.
It sounds like your console was suffering from screen freeze, if it would not respond to your controller commands, the best thing to do to cure this is to replace the heatsink paste on top of the gpu(under the small heatsink) then repace the clamp by screwing the heatsink to the board, this is basically the same cure for rrod, so there are plenty of guides around.
