    Last night I was playing COD4 and it just shut down on me. I turned it off and then back on. I started the system got a green light which then turned yellow and then started to flash red. From everything I have read it seems to be a hard drive failure. What is the best option for a fix?

This is a common problem unfortunetly. I would get it replaced if you have warrenty on it. The yellow light most likely indicates that the hard drive has failed.
