Xbox 360 freezes during gameplay with no error message – how do I fix it?
This article will explain Xbox 360 freezing issues and tell you why this happens and also give you an overview of the options you have to fix your console.
Basically, freezing issues usually start after a few months of gaming on your console and the reason this happens is because the solder on the motherboard that connects the GPU and CPU comes loose and loses connection.
So why does the solder loosen?
Well this is due to overheating and as the console gets too hot it actually causes the motherboard to bend slightly and then once it bends too much the solder breaks though once it breaks by complete, you’ll have red light issues and you’ll have to find a way to fix it.
So is there a way to stop the freezing and prevent red lights?
Well yes you can and all you need to do is stop the heat buildup in your Xbox and there are a couple of ways you can do that.
You can make sure the console has enough air and can breathe from all sides and also make sure you keep the power brick off the floor in an open box as this has to breathe too.
You might also want to get some extra cooling and you can get an extra fan that plugs into the back of your Xbox 360 which is called a Nyko intercooler and this all makes the fans that pump the air into your Xbox some aid .
If you follow these 2 suggestions you will definitely notice an improvement in performance and it should also stop the freezing issues.
I hope this article has explained why Xbox 360 freezing happens and how you can prevent the problems from happening again.
