I have the red dot on my xbox slim and it told me that the xbox insufficient ventilation and to let it cool down so i did and it also said turn back on when the red light stops blinking and did that also. I dont know what to do now because everytime I turn it on in about 3 minutes it shuts off and the fan doesent even move so im scared right now and I really don't want to buy a new one. Help me?

Where is your console located? I had mine in a TV Stand and it would constantly get hot, some things you can do are:

- Install games, this helps the console run with less work.

- Purchase a fan/cooler for your console, this will help redirect the heat if it's in an enclosed place.

- Try lowering the temp in your room, if your room is warmer, the console is warmer.

- Ensure that the vents are clean and uncovered.

- If none of these help, then you may need to have your console checked out to see if there are other issues with your Xbox.

Here are some other handy tips for cooling your system.
