If you have found your way to this article then you are probably looking for more information on the common Xbox 360 problem that causes freezing during your game play. If you have encountered this error then your screen will just freeze up with no error message and the only thing you can do is switch off your console and then hope that it works when you switch it back on again.

This article will tell you a bit more about how you can try to stop your Xbox 360 from freezing up.

The problem is caused as you play games the motherboard takes more and more heat and this is fine to begin with but over the weeks of playing the soldering becomes loose and cannot communicate with the GPU and the CPU. When this happens you will encounter a game freeze so it makes sense that to stop this problem you need to stop the console overheating.

The first thing you should do is make sure your Xbox is in a place where it can breathe on all sides, and for best results try keeping it near an open window.

Also another overlooked thing that can cause these problems is the power brick and what you should do is keep this up off the floor and that allows it to breathe on all sides just like your Xbox. You may have noticed that the power brick also has fans in and if these are not able to pump out enough air because of dust then this can lead to game freezing.

Lastly if you really want to get rid of this problem I would suggest you get yourself an extra fan that plugs into the back of the console and gives it additional cooling and this should stop it form happening again!

I hope this article has told you why the Xbox 360 Freezing issue happens and how you can help resolve it fast!
