    So two days ago i was enjoying some MW2 with my little cousin and all of a sudden i get black dots scattered across my screen. :wtc: I searched on google and it seems as though it has something to do with the GPU... anyways i called microsoft and they won't cover it unless i get the red ring.

    Are there any other options beside paying them 100 bucks to fix their faulty hardware?

    My Xbox has the falcon chip and was made on 12/07

    wrap it in a towel, play for a few minutes, then send it off for repairs

    I can't believe people aer still putting up with that bullshit. I honestly quit playing my xbox because of fear it'd red ring and then I'd have to pay for that shit out of pocket (the console is 3 yrs old at this point :o)

    fuck that noise.

    Same here. Mine crapped out on me before xmas, got the new one in, it lasted 15 minutes before I had to send it off again.

    Way too frustating.

    And it had RROD'd once before then as well :ugh:


    I miss some xbox live friends, but at the same time, I don't miss having to worry about breaking something while gaming

    I have had my 360 since launch, RROD once, sent it in, all in all, 1 month without my 360 in 4 years. Better than a mercedes ratio

    You're about to get an e74 error, same exact thing happened to me, also a falcon box. Call M$ and they'll replace it
