Default Xbox360 question

The last 2 days whenever I use my 360 after 5 or 10 minutes from using it, the picture freezes and stops playing. Why is it doing that? Is my 360 about to stop playing altogether?

It sounds like you may be on your way to a hardware failure. I would call Xbox customer support.

eh man...now I'm freaking out. I got a new elite in summer ... no problems. but with Transformers (maybe it's because I refused the cookies) whenever my 360 is connected to live...it takes forever to load and sometimes freezes...that's the only act up I've ever gotten

You need to disable cookies. I had that happen before - it locked up twice. Then, I read somewhere about disabling cookies on the HD DVD player and startup's a snap.

1: Go to the System blade
2: Go down and select Memory
3: Go down and Select HD Player (NOT Hard Drive)

I will go home and access it tonight ...
