Hi I have my Xbox a year now but I only played about a month or two of the Xbox any time I play halo 4 My Xbox gets hot then after 5-10 mins later its super hot I'm a very big gamer I play Xbox all day and Mabey night lol Avarge about 10-12 hours Mabey
less I don't want my Xbox to break can some tell me what's wrong is this normal is my Xbox breaking or is it a fault pluse my halo 4 scratched so I can't install I install the games that I most play online and campaign please help thank you it would mean alot.
Does the console have enough room to breathe? The vents should be clear with nothing close by. Also, if the scratch is a circle scratch then that means the console has been moved while it was on with the disc inside. If your console is standing on end
I would recommend laying it flat.
If you have a friend who has the game, borrow the disc and install it that way. You should be able to fully access the game with your own disc after that.
Does it have enough ventilation area around it? Like for example if it is in a DVD cabinet I suggest moving it out to an open area like the top of the cabinet or on a separate table. Be sure to remove any dust and clutter and Clean the dust off of the vents
and keep it flat. Do not put things on top of it as blocking the vents will block air flow. This is optional but go and borrow a copy of halo 4 or rent it from a video store and install the game to your console. Playing games from the hard drive will double
the lifespan of the DVD drive and put less strain on your Xbox.
sounds like dust is building up on the heat sink and its unable to bleed off the heat into the air. may want to give them a call
an clean dust off the vents wont do you any good . but do keep it flat if you stand it up your moving the air intake to the top ware the hot air goes and that fan has NO real power to get cool air over the heat sink
next your xbox is going to start freezing. iv already been there
[quote user="DES5IE"]any time I play halo 4 My Xbox gets hot then after 5-10 mins later its super hot[/quote]Define "hot" in a more thorough fashion.
The last time I put a temperature sensor on the exhaust grill of a 360 S, the exhaust was around 115-120F, up from the 90-95F of an original Jasper 360.
The exhaust should be hot. It's exhausting hot air out of the console.
If you're playing games from the disc, don't. Install them. If you can't, either buy a new copy or buy a Games on Demand copy.[quote]I'm a very big gamer I play Xbox all day and Mabey night lol Avarge about 10-12 hours Mabey less[/quote]10 to 12 hours a
