Xbox 360 Games Freezes
Posted 28 November 2006 - 09:01 PM
I've updated my firmware several times to 4.2A, 4.2B and 3.3, but every game keeps freezing after playing for about 10 minutes. The game just freezes. The dvdrom keeps reading and there are no red lights.
What could this be? I've tried Call of Duty 3, Gears of War and Rainbow Six and they all freeze after some time playing. I have a Samsung Toshiba ms25 dvdrom.
Any comments greatly appreciated.

Played a couple of demo's on my xbox 360 hdd and they also freeze! So I didn't burn my backups the wrong way and my drive is flashed ok. So backup's and demo's both freeze at some time in the game (10-30 minutes). No red lights, only a compleet lockup.
So what does this mean? I'm out of options..

I know this doesnt fit into this, but if I restore my drive using restore.bat, but use none of my ripped information from my original firmware from my drive, am I still able to play on xbox live? And is there any connection at all with firmware modding and overheating?

Sorry for the triple post, but I just tryed it for an hour with the case fully assembled after I let it cool off for a while. It worked fine.
So I guess this means its a heating issue.

Most likely its the RAM chips overheating. Look in the hardware section for the "12 cent fix"... (people only use 8 pennies now though)
If you were really adventourous you can do the complete xclamp replacement... also in the hardware section.

Alternatively you can send this off to a pro solderer who specializes in 360 point repairs and sometimes will also replace the fans too improve air flow and reduce the chances of melting solder!
hope this helps
