how long would yo usay the overall process took you? and how long did you have the old one and the new one that you say is working good? I was thinking about calling them tonight and having them troubleshoot so that they know it's not the game

Alright so just for an update I called into 1800-4MYXBOX and spoke to a rep and did some "troubleshooting" basically he had me start up the console with the game inside but the harddrive removed.... still froze up on GTA so the dude set up a repair order and the guy said it takes 3-4 weeks i'll get the coffin in like 3-5 days he said.

Dude also said that if the console isn't repairable that I'll get a microsoft certified console elite just like mine, either way I just want a system that works and I don't gotta go through thsi sh*t dammit.

At least I got a ps2 hooked up with madden and some other games in case I get bored in the meantime

I really never thought my xbox would ever die.

I have a launch console that JUST gave me red lights yesterday, I did the towel trick and it worked.

I still called in for a coffin nonetheless, but still, my sh*t lasted me a loooooong time.

instead of scrolling through 32 pages (pardon my ignorance)


my 360 had 3 red lights, i turned it off, and on it came back on as normal

was it a one off?
is it a 360 pre-RROD??

should i trade this sh*t in before im left with a big a.ss door stop?


any info/advice is appreciated....


im pretty sure that my 360 showing 3 red lights wasnt for no reason

The Xbox 360's infamous Red Ring of death problem was the price Microsoft paid for attempting to save money by designing its own graphics chip for the console rather than buy one off a specialist supplier, it has been claimed.

Speaking at a chip conference in California, Gartner chief analyst Bryan Lewis said the software giant created the console's graphics engine itself in a bid to reduce the cost of producing the console, EETimes reports.



Had the company gone to a company like AMD or Nvidia in the first place, he suggested, it would probably have avoided the problem. A graphics specialst, he said, would have been able to come up with a GPU that pumped out a lot less heat.

Overheating was fingered early on as the cause of the RRoD failure.

In 2007, Microsoft said it would spend $1bn to fix Xbox 360s suffering from the RRoD.



Microsoft has never given specific details for the reason for the failure. When it announced the $1bn charge, Xbox chief Robbie Bach it said the issue was not related to the console's manufacturing and hinted it was the result of a "Microsoft-initiated design".

Lewis claimed that Microsoft subsequently called on a graphics chip maker - no, he didn't say which one - to fix the problem. It's believed that AMD got the gig, having acquired GPU maker ATI.

Curiously, it was ATI's 'R500' GPU that was previously said to be the basis for the Xbox 360 graphics engine. Certainly, ATI was always claimed to be the Xbox 360 GPU supplier - it said as much itself back in 2003.


"We selected ATI after reviewing the top graphics technologies in development and determining that ATI's technical vision fits perfectly with the future direction of Xbox," said Bach at the time.

When the 360 was finally released and able to be taken apart, pundits found both the console's GPU and CPU stamped with Microsoft logos. Essentially, Microsoft took ATI's design, added some extra bits and sent to out to manufacturing.

Last month, it was claimed that Microsoft ordered its first 65nm graphics chip, believed to be intended for use in a further revision of the Xbox 360, codenamed 'Jasper' and due this summer. ®




MS is all about getting their own way on things as we know, so it wouldn't surprised me if they sent in their tech geeks to tell ATI geeks to custom design a GPU to MS standards not theirs, ATI got the moolah and gave MS what they specifically asked for.........

Alright, I just got the Red Ring of death on my 360. I don't want it anymore. I got the Best Buy Replacement Plan. Is there anyway for me to trade it in to Best Buy and get a PS3 or do I have to get another Xbox?

Those that was able to or got information on it, please let me know
