Default Fucking Xbox 360!

So i've had my 360 for a month and a half or so, and the piece of shit has started regularily freezing on me. At first it was rare and when i restarted it would be fine, but recently it freezes up all the time - sometimes in the middle of a game, sometimes just when the system is starting up. I've even got 3 red lights showing up around. Now the strange thing is that they're not flashing - they just stay a solid red.

WTF?!

I've tried to research the issue online and by all accounts the ring of death problem has the lights flashing. mine don't flash, but clearly i have a problem.

Does this sound familiar to any of you?

Please Advise!

dammit. I was actually thinking of putting an anti-Benzo disclaimer . I knew you were going to say something to that effect.

Look, I got the console for free from my brother in law. I've bought a few games up to now. i like the system a lot. I'd like to try to remedy this problem and don't want to go the route of having to fork out $500 for a new system and games.

There is no turning back now...your XBOX is fucked...and will continue to be fucked ...soon you will see "please insert this disk in an XBOX 360", you must make the move Fancy...take it to EB....tell them nothing is wrong with it...the'll give you a hundred bucks....take and free yourself.

















Oh and I told ya so.

I have to agree with Benzo on this one... sell it now or send it to M$ first to get it fix and sell it then.

Then, do yourself a favor and, get a PS3...

I had a 360 for 3 weeks and then it died on me... I send it for a repair and after almost a month I got it back repaired... it worked for 2 weeks and then it died again... I send it, again, for a repair, another month passes... I get it back but this time I sold it a got my PS3... now well over year and a half my PS3 still runs like a charm...

i dunno what to say fancy... tough luck bro.
you either get lucky, or you dont.
out of all my friends, we've never had any problems with our 360's, but everywhere i read, everyone is complaining about it. its like a 25% chance of getting fucked.
ive had my 360 for a couple years now and have never had a single problem with it. luckily for me too, since i bought it on ebay and didnt have a reciept or a warranty... phew.
but i do agree with benzo on this one, PS3 is the shit baby... trade in your 360 and get one... if you can.
if not, go complain to microsoft and they will hopefully fix your box... i dunno how it works though, no one i know personally has had this problem.

Update:

I tried it out again yesterday and the Xbox was doing some fucked up things - i.e. freezing in like 32 bit graphics, controllers vibrating for no purpose, strange internal beeping noises, red ring of death, etc.

I packed the piece of shit up and called Xbox support. My box to return the thing is on the way.

PS3 to come within the next month.
