Hey, I'm sure this has happened to many people but I was wondering if there is a way to fix it. My Xbox 360 lights up red on 3 sides of the circles whenever i turn it on (instead of green). my life is so boring without it. Is there anyway to fix this?

The Red Ring Of Death! Whoever came up with that name
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Lol it's (unfortunately) a common problem. The Red Ring of Death means that a hardware failure has occurred within the machine. Probably caused by overheating according to the people who've sent their 360s to microsoft for repair and received it with an extra heat sink. If you've got a proof of purchase or warranty, you can send it to Microsoft and theyll fix it for you. Other than that, there's not really much else you can do.

Send it to microsoft and have them repair it. Its not home-fixable. If its not under warranty, you better save up for a new one.

Shut your noise, I was 18 when I had mine. About 30 seconds later the girl was sick on me. I'm not sure if the two events were related.

XBOX 360 sucks anyway. I was looking for a game today (as all I’ve ever had is Perfect Dark and Oblivion) and there was absolutely nothing. All there is, is sport games and crappy futuristic shooting games. Rubbish!!

Red ring of death man. You're pretty much screwed, as I'm sure you know by now.

Yeah, go for a PS3 - once there's a few more games out (say Octobertime) - GTA IV anyone? (I know it's on both, but they're having space issues with the 360.) However, you can't guarantee that in a year all the PS3s won't be crashing. I doubt it though, Sony are generally pretty reliable.
