Default Meine 360 ist kaputt!

LOL

so i was playing COD4 and all of a sudden my game froze. so i rebooted, then it froze at the xbox screen. so i removed the disc and unplugged it to clear the RAM. then i turned it back on and i got this....



haha oh well. i have an older version anyway, so hopefully they will upgrade my CPU/GPU to the smaller process and it will run cooler.

just upgraded my computer and just got the Orange Box, so at least ill have some games to play in the meantime.

RIP 360, you gave me hundreds of hours of gameplay. i will see you when you return.

I thought this only happened to Sony Fanboys and those with an agenda? They all die.

Another one bites the dust, no big surprises, this console is the biggest POS ever built (speaking from a construction viewpoint of course)

Sorry to hear that dude. I ended up buying an elite, repairing my busted Premium 360 and selling it.

At the moment, I feel like I did the right thing. The Elite has been very stable for me so far. *touch wood*

got an email from MS when i ordered the coffin. they said 4-6 weeks after they receive it. is the repair center backed up or this normal?

my brother went through two 360's already and it took him about 2 weeks for each.

It *shouldn't* take that long.

I'll use this thread to tell my story, which ultimately led to me getting rid of the 360 all together. After having replaced 3 Pro/Premium systems due to freezing and/or RRoD, I bought a brand new Elite last summer. It worked great for about 6 months. Then all of a sudden while doing some Gears online, the system would freeze up while trying to play online. Same went for other games.

Another call to the brainless ones in Xbox support. Did the standard shipping rigamarole, got the system back about 2-3 weeks later, and instead of an Elite, they sent me a Pro. Idiots, it wasn't even a Falcon system either, no HDMI port. Another round of phone calls, send back the wrong system, get another package. They sent an Elite all right, but they didn't include a power supply, which I had returned to them. That was the last straw. Power supply comes in, hard drive gets formatted, system gets sold. In the oh, 2 months that I dealt with this, I hardly missed the machine and don't regret selling it in the slightest.

PS3 and Wii? Still going strong. In fact, I just upgraded the PS3's hard drive to 120 GB in anticipation of the rumored DVR functionality, as well as possibly installing Linux.

BTW, ViN, if you want an update on the status of your repair, have your case number handy and call (866) 506-3826. That's a number to US-based Xbox support where you'll deal with people who actually speak English as a first language.

they don't have any, simple as that, your console won't be repaired, you will get a new one.

MS has hardware shortages now.
