Firstly, I've read all the related support documents on this website. Please don't link me to them, I know it's normally a good place to start and as such I started there. I'm also not under warranty or willing to pay for repairs from Micro$oft, as I could
buy a new Xbox for less than £62 elsewhere.
So a few days ago my Xbox (one of the originals, I think a 'premium' model) started to RRoD. 2 lights, which according to Microsoft is over heating. The thing is it only happens with certain games. I've played the THPS HD demo for a few hours - no problems. Batman Arkham Asylum for hours - no problems. However, CoD:Black Ops lasts less than 5 mins before RRoDing and the same for Battlefield 3.
I'm thinking that it's either CPU/GPU over heating? I'm far from an expert, but considering the games that do/don't make it RRoD, it seems relevant to how...intense, out of lack of better word, the games are. The warranty expired Christmas 2008 so yeaaaah, don't mind opening it up.
was wondering if anyone could either provide better diagnosis of what's wrong and perhaps a solution? Thanks.
