    hi peeps , im new here so sorry if this is posted in the wrong place.
    Ive had my xbox 360 premium since march and it keeps on freezing or saying disc is unreadable but my games are all brand new. Its wierd because it sounds like a fan or something is spinning fast when it boots up , and everything works ok, but every now and then something stops spinning and the console goes quiet and then i know its only a matter of time before it crashes again and i need to reset.
    has anybody else had similar problems? i dont think its overheating because it sometimes crashes straight away before its even had chance to warm up.
    any advise will be greatly apreciated .cheers
    Bod.

    Take it back to the retailer you got it from and get it exchanged for a new one.

    Hello Mate and welcome to the forum

    I have had a 360 since the launch date and what You are experencing is what thousands of other 360 owners experience.

    I have not got a clue why it happens but there is loads of threads on this site regrding this sort of thing.

    Happy hunting mate

    If u still have the receipt take it back to the retailer most are generally good at exchanging them due the number of problems with them :thumbsup:

    I'm on my second xbox 360 and I get the same thing. I'm sending mine back for repair (free of charge). As every one e;se says it happens alot but I won't be without an xbox now.

    If anyone has any questions not covered in the faulty 360 FAQ, please feel free to discuss in that thread.
