Red Light on Xbox 360 Slim AC power unit

Just in the past week my 360 ac power unit runs red and shuts off  the system. It only seems to happen when I play a game for longer than 10-15 minutes, but I can use netflix, bing and watch dvds. Also I can use my friends power cord and it works just fine. Is the problem that my ac unit is bad or could it be my system?
