Your GPU is failing. There are tiny cracks in one of the solder balls on the GPU that separate when the xbox warms up. If you cannot open it up I suggest you buy a small fan and have it blow directly on the backside of the xbox(the side with the rubber feet). It should keep the GPU cool enough from coming apart. There is no way to tell how long that will last. If you get three red lights on the front of the xbox call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and let them know about your problem. There is a 3 year warranty on your xbox and it will be a free repair if this happens. Good Luck!

Freezing up


Try removing your harddrive to see it that's what is causing the problems. Games should play fine without harddrive, but no save, of course. It it works without HD you may need to replace yours.
