    My 360 has just died.

    It crashes apon loading up and at most will run for around 5 minutes. Actually Ive been trying for a while now and it wont even load up...the power light comes on then turns to the feared red ring of death.

    Im slightly annoyed to be honest, my 360 is the only console I have ever had problems of this nature with. Is it so much to ask they make working consoles...

    I know Im not the first one to have an issue like this, and was wondering if anyone knew what I could to to fix it? Sending it back is the last thing I wanna do so anything other than that would be awesome

    Thanks in advance!

    It's Microsoft, what did you expect? They make computers that freeze/crash and dont work most the time,of course their console will have problems too. Its probably got a PC virus or something.

    Microsoft doesn't make computers. They make the fantastic operating system called Windows, and I bet at least 90% of the users on here use it and are content with it. That was completely wrong and unhelpful.

    Your Xbox 360 didn't get a "PC virus or something", but I'm sure a simple Google search will help. I'll be right back.

    Edit: Hardware failure. Here, straight from Microsoft: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907534

    Okay at the moment its clinging to life...

    Its loaded up and on the menu screen fine, which is better than before...but it refuses to play a game without crashing.

    >_< AHHHHHH

    [EDIT]My 100th post would be one where I'm moaning wouldn't it..

    Bah, my Dad's gotta ring up Microsoft or who ever soon, they're gonna have to fix/replace mine due to it not playing games, yet playing CDs and stuff. Look through on Google there's loaaads a problems with 360's. Either way, I still love 360 :]

    It's a pro..I'll give that a go for now. I've let it cool previous, but not with the HD removed.

    Fingers crosses it'll help.
