Check your video cable.
If that does not solve it, you might have RRoD(Red Ring of Death).
In that case, send it back to Microsoft (if still in warranty). If not, go here for instrucitons on how to fix this.

2 rings of death only when a play a video game. I had 3 red rings, then I did an x-clamp fix , cleaned GPU and CPU and applied arctic sliver to the xbox. When I start up my xbox it show no red...


Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the RROD - 2 RED RINGS ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides

The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

Why does my xbox 360 kepps freezing when i play games?


360's tend to lock up before the "red rings of death". You get this when the system overheats and has problems with the solder coming loose. Mine took a little over a weak before it got the red rings after it kept freezing after a few min.'s of playing.

It could be overheating because the fan is not getting enough air out. try cleaning the console itself outside and using can of compressed air to get any buildup in the vent holes and fan cleared. There are a few FAQS on this site to learn about a few tricks.

feel free to comment if you have any questions. Hope this helped and remember you have a three year waranty on your xbox for the red ring and E74 error!

Why is my xbox freezing when my xbox does not have red ring of death?


its probably overheating try using a fan constantly on it when you play. if that doesn't work i bet the red ring will show up. if that happens call 1800myxbox they have a step by step instruction system for you to send it down and get it fixed. but keep your hard drive at your home. hope this helps
-good luck

I keep getting three red rings in the part where it shows how may controllers are playing and i can't get any of my games to play or my controllers to work


Three lights flash red on the Ring of Light (RoL) on the front of your Xbox 360 console. The upper-right quadrant light is the only light that does not flash red. The three flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with your Xbox 360 console.

You can try one or two things.

1. Turn on your xbox and check to see if the power supply light is green. If it is green there is a problem with the system. If it is red it means you should check your connections and restart the xbox.

2. These rings have a tendency of meaning that there is a problem with the system itself. Most companies sell extra insurance to cover this "ROL" Ring of life. You can contact Microsoft by calling them. The number is usually listed on the back of the video game booklets.

I wish you the best and I hope this resolved your problem

Happy Gaming

Three red rings


Go online to XBOX.COM and register your Xbox (will need your serial number). Microsoft will then mail you a mailing box with instructions (at their cost). It will be shipped to McAllen TX (mine was and was delivered to them today).

But next unit will not be Microsoft related.
