Game freezing-up

Post by VardaElentari » Wed Feb 20, 2008 16:44

I'm wondering if this is due to not having enough memory. Right now I have 170MB left. This is happening when I'm playing TES IV, and when my son is playing Forza 2. One good thing; I'm not seeing any red lights of death on the 360 console. Would it be a good idea to purchase a hard drive?

Hmm, that makes me wonder if not having a hard drive clogs up the random access memory...

does it freeze when you are trying to save, or does it just occur randomly?

I had the exact same problem... I told my mom about this and she had a friend that was able to fix it. The problem is that it is dirty inside, from dust, cat or dog hair, or even dirt. An X Box 260 is very fragile, drop it an inch from the ground and poof! It's done! No more 360! ;)

Just take it some one that can take it apart and clean it out, after wards it should be working good as new!

This is also a cause of RROD. Hope you don't get it! ;)

Just get a HD, it's not all that expensive and the 60gb ones are like around $100.
