and your monitor/TV works well with everything else? If thats the case, I would try using a different video source, component, S-Video and see if the 360 resets its settings. If not, it could be a bad video card out on the 360

no worries, just keep us updated and hopefully we can find some form of remedy without the need of a new 360

it seems like its faulty. how old is your 360? Microsoft releases two kinds of revisions on the standard 360's the elite motherboard minus the hdmi is in retail stores as well as a replacement board. and the 65nm chips should be out later this month or next month. you can id this at any store. look on the box of the 360 near the upc code and numbers it should say zephyer which is the elite and or falcon which is the new 65nm.

I am on my fourth one, and i did void the warranty so i can check the board out and i do have the elite one, they added a heatsink with a copper pipe near the powerbutton.

It's the video card. I had the same problem, except the screen went yellow. Call 1-800-4-MYXBOX and tell them what happens and that you think your video card has failed.

I have a 32" Westinghouse with the same problem. Both component hookups went bad. I have a feeling that my HDMI hookup is next. I would suggest staying away from the Westinghouse brand. It was only cheaper in the short run.

I do want to note that I fixed the problem (probably on a temporary basis) by unplugging the tv for several minutes. I plugged the power chord back in the the Westinghouse symbol flashed on screen. I hope this helps you out.
