2 red lights weird error.

Okay, this is pretty weird. Whenever I play a video game that has like pretty good graphics, my xbox shuts itself off and gives me 2 red rings. Now this is the weird part. Whenever I do anything but play a game, my xbox can run for hours on end without any problems. As soon as I load up a game of call of duty then it shuts right off.


My console space is very clear, the only thing on my desk is my xbox and the power supply and a small fan that I turn on when I sleep. I've even tested this last night. I left my console on for over 12 hours without any problems at all. Then, of course, when I launch a video game it red rings and shuts off.


Any suggestions? I don't have enough money to buy a repair any time soon so am I just out of luck? Or what can I do?

Once an Xbox 360 gets a 2 red light error, being "in a clear area" becomes irrelevant.  The damage has already happened.  The console internal cooling is faulty.   You're only option is to get a repair by Registering a Repair
