Overheating GPU or damage GPU either way, you have to open your xbox and check if the GPU and the heatsink have thermal compound on it. Comment if it doesn't work.

Whenever I turn it on, white dots start flying across the screen on my Xbox 360


Hi,
It sounds like the the processor is over heating and its causing the system to shut down before it burned up the board. Basically your thermal paste between your processor and the heatsink is not doing its job. There could be a crack on it might have just degraded over time.
This can cause the system to freeze or see white dots on the screen. It needs to be repaired before more issues happen. Dont turn it on you might cause more damage
Thank you

Xbox 360 no sound or picture but with a twist


The towel trick is just that a TRICK. overheating your console
will shorten the life of most of the electrolytic capacitors.
and if it works it will very temporary.

First thing to try
goto gamestop and buy a multi a/v adpter .that will have
many plugs . plug the xbox 360 adapter in and then
plug the S-video into your set and some time you
can get video single from this line even if the main
Red /white/yellow/ line are dead . and since you have
sound from red /white you should be ok.

If the s-video has no output then your going to have
to do what's called an x clamp mod on it or
have a shop re-flow the G.P.U. this is the most
durable repair.

Any questions feel free to ask.

No picture just a black screen with small white dots. still got sound though!


If your Xbox 360 does not have display you need to stop the heat getting to the chips. You can actually do this yourself as many have in this forum using the recommended Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Basically the guide will show you how to stop the heat build up with videos and household items, of course if you are in doubt send it in.

It has a preview video on the website.

Or of course you can send it in to have it fixed.

It could be the cable port needs resetting. On the TV unplug the tv and on the xbox disconnect the cord and turn off the xbox and unplug it. Then put the different cord on and plug the 360 back in.

I have sound but no picture


There's a youtube video saying the towel trick that
people use on the "Red Rings of Death" also works on the
xbox 360 audio/no video problem.
& here's another video of the towel trick itself...

No picture on 360 with white dotted lines.


Make sure that the video connection is properly connected to the TV.. (yellow to yellow) or if using Red Green Blue, make sure colours are connected to the right ports on back of TV)

Also, if you have the option, make sure either HDTV or Normal TV is selected on the back of the connector to the Xbox (IE, if you do not have an HDTV, select normal cable).

On your AV cord theres a switch that changes it from HDTV, to TV

Make sure its switched to TV if your not using HDTV, or switched to HDTV if ur using that. If you need pics let me know I can get you some so you can see where the switch is.


If that doesn't resolve it check your cords, make sure the cords match the colors.
