red ring on xbox 360 S 250gb suddenly

was playing skyrim

and out of the blue the game froze in a checkered style pixelated way

and then the screen went black

red ring of death apeared and flashed

thank god i am still under warranty

there is one red light ring and then the red eye of the xbox 360 S 250gb

any possible fixes?

I unplugged the power cord and all plugins and right now I am letting it cool, maybe it overheated. I bought mine 12/26/12

I don't want to have to send it in for service just yet but what I do notice while playing skyrim it did freeze up a lot 

VS

my ps3 skyrim which hardly ever froze

Try blowing out your xbox you may have a lot of dust built up inside of the fan and the vents.
