Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
My Madden 09 Disc freezes up every other game. So does GTA IV but no other games do this SCiV, COD4, Halo 3, etc.
Note: Already cleared the cache (still freezes), played without the HD (still froze), and am on the second copy of Madden 09. I have also played on someone elses system (elite) and it didn't freeze, only played one game though!
Well it can that the GPU is overheating, that happens very often and I will tell why. Microsoft is so cheap that sometimes they forget to put the thermal compound on the heatsink that covers the GPU, so the poor GPU is force to the max and overheats easily after long periods of gaming. Thats why it freezes on the middle of the game. That was very common on xbox machines made before the launch of HALO 3, the new models do come with the compound but just a little bit of it, what a I do is that a use thermal compound like artic or other brand a put a even amount on the heatsink so it covers the entire GPU, then overheatings problems disappears. Hope it helps
