    so i had the RRoD. I opened it up, found a ton of dust, cleaned it off. i kept turning it off and back on, and each time it got a bit louder, until it finally successfully booted. (i was so proud of myself lol) i booted it successfully about 3 or 4 or 5 times, until the next time it got so freaking loud i thought it was gonna blow up. It then got silent and showed me two red rings, (overheat issue). i let it sit for two hours, no change. what should i do?!?

    Call Microsoft. But you should have done that before taking it apart

    well damn, do you think i would have opened it if i was still under warrenty? of course not..it was gamestop refurbished, and i coudnt register it to send it in for repairs cause the original owner already did.

    If you opened it, your warranty is void.

    it doesnt matter that it was used, its warrenty was expired and used by someone else so i cant register it for repairs.

    What he is saying has to do with M$'s busted system, it wont let him send it in cause his consol ID is registered to another person.

    To fix it look up RROD Fix, and do the x-clamp replacement. Yes i know its mostly for 1 or 3 red light problems but doing this may help re-seat the CPU and GPU, they could be out of alignment or messed up from the dust.
