Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Try looking up the "x clamp replacement" on you tube

This is referred to as the 3 Rings of Death. Your power adapter has either overheated, or it has overheated and caused damage to your xbox. Contact Microsoftto apply for them to send a ups box out to your house to have it picked up and fixed.

I had the red ring of death for my XBox 360. I tried the towel trick, but it only lasted for a week each time before it broke again. I sent my XBox 360 for repairs to www.videogame911.com and had it back within a week and haven't had a error code since.

Haha see the only way to prevent this problem is to not play the game more than 4 hours... and do keep the console in an open lace where it can ventilate enough air to cool down.

Unfortunately there is nothing that you can directly do to fix this problem without voiding your warranty,. This means that if you attempt to repair it and fail MS will not fix it for you.. The "Fix" posted by others SOMETIMES works, but NOT ALWAYS.
Pleae be careful with your expesive gear!
You have a hardware failure. Microsoft will repair your unit for you under warranty / recall.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
