    So the other day im playing Call Of Juarez. It's burnt on verbatim dl disk at 2.4x. My 360 is hooked up to my gateway FPD2185W lcd monitor. While im playing the screen makes some distorted images and the 360 freezes as far as I can tell. So I restart the 360 and it freezes on the startup opening screen. Turn the 360 off for a while and everything seems fine....momentatrily. Call of Juarez freezes on a certain spot all the time now and now when i play Forza 2 it decides to freeze to , and it never froze before. I am getting none of the red 'ring-of-death' circles...it's just that my 360 is freezing on these two games,...no distorted images, just freezing up.I'll even press the eject button and the frozen image will still be on the screen. What the hell is up? I have a MS28 with xtreme 5.3. And I've been problem free since i got my 360 in december ....now until call of juarez....

    Microsoft probably wont even check firmware.You'll pay a certain amount and they'll send you a refurbished console that will last less time than your original did.Its totally pointless sending it to them my advice would be to get it fixed by somebody else then you'll get your console back and it will probably work longer than a refurbished console. Id also advise you to get a fan upgrade for extra cooling they're easy to fit yourself and a lot cheaper than paying for your console to be repaired again.

    Just send it to MS,they send you back your original console now.Dont tell them that you tampered with it and you should be fine.But did you get banned from Xbox Live?? as they will ask you for your Serial Number

    i wouldnt send it to ms, they claim to send back your console now but they were claiming to do that to begin with. send it to a good site, check google for "xbox 360 repair service" and see what comes up.
