    Its a simple fix mate. I can sort it, although it will cost £30

    Or you can just buy a heatgun, small philips screw driver. Strip it down. Take the motherboard out and place on a table or something. Blast it with the heatgun (Try not get it too hot). turn over and do otherside, put together with fresh thermal interface material (That white crap thats on the two big chips, remember clean the original crap off). Hopefully if done correct, all will be well

    And they say the 360 is always breaking. Seams the ps3 has just as a hard time

    If your on your 4th I would say you have it in a environment thats too warm or too dusty, make sure there is plenty of room around it and it's got something underneath it just to raise it off the table. When your not using it put a old t-shirt over it to stop dust getting in there, and if you hear the fan cut in after about 5 minutes of play you know its getting too hot too quick.

    If you want to be really safe, put a desktop fan near it, especially in summer months to extend its life.

    i bought my mate a cooling fan for his, he has no problems anymore

    this wasnt the exact one, but you get the idea

    Mr Tickle was very excited about marrying Tess...

    Tess wasn't too sure of her new name

    Xbox 360 don't get the RRoD anymore, that just the old versions. So they brake far less now days.

    Btw, PS3 users, if you have the old big one, make a habbit of reversing you fans, by turning your ps3 off, and at the back, then hold down the eject button whilst turning the switch on at the back again. Will reverse your fans and get loads of dust of of there.

    Sounds the same as the X clamp fix for the X box. I fixed my knackered Xbox this way and it's fine again.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
