hey i have an xbox 360 s elite 250gb that is about 8 months old and it keeps freezing every 5 minutes. I have tried removing the hard drive and the game disc it doesn't work although without the hdd it takes longer to freeze. I have tried reformatting my hdd and clearing the system cache and it still freezes. I have checked all the connections to the tv and the power cable it's fine. When it freezes it looks like the game has been paused you can still see the image but there is no sound. I have noticed that since this problem began my xbox takes longer to load up stuff like when i turn it on it takes around 10 seconds for it to load up the dashboard and it takes even longer to load up the images on the dashboard. Other stuff takes a while to load as well. It's very slow. I have tried playing offline and the problem still occurs. Also, sometimes when i try to turn it on the whole ring of light goes red. How can i fix this?
