The 360 has been acting weird the last few days. It would just freeze while I would be playing. I'd restart it and it would work for a while. Anyway today it kept happening, and when I'd turn it back on, red lights would turn on and I would get nothing on screen (no signal detected on monitor). IT looked like they were all 4 lights turned on. Just earlier I tried it again, turned on for a bit, froze, restarted, then I saw the infamous 3 red lights. Again no signal.

I tried moving the power supply. I don't think it's a heat problem cos it was rather cold today anyway, and we didn't turn the heaters on.

I dunno what to do, buy a new one? I got controllers and a decent HDD already, so I'd only need the console without anything really. Unless someone has a better idea? (Don't say get a PS3, it's still too expensive and I've pre-ordered Modern Warfare 2 for 360!)

Try another power supply, also what's the mfr date? if it's within 3 years microsoft will replace.

Sounds like you're well on your way to a full on RROD. Have a couple heavy gaming sessions and get ready to send it back to MS. Don't waste your money on a power supply.

It's not. I bought this used! I'm surprised it's lasted this long really.
