Xbox 360 Slim freezing on initial start screen

I was playing the other day when my screen went black and my Xbox showed a red dot. It had only been on for about 20 minutes and is in a well ventilated area. Now every time I turn it on it will go black after about 2 seconds of the startup screen. My controller won't sync, nothing happens. It's not showing the red dot anymore but still not working. Things I've tried: -unplugging all power supply connections and reconnecting after a few minutes -removing hdd(when I do this, it turns on and screen never changes from black) I have tried finding similar problems online but none are exactly like mine. It's very confusing, since it only showed the red dot the when the trouble started. Has my Xbox bit the dust?

Check your power supply. It may show a red dot on it, which means it needs to be better ventilated itself. If not, here is a helpful wizard for helping you if you can remember how many lights were on when it RRODed support.xbox.com/.../flashing-lights-solution

The power supply always showed green, orange when Xbox is off. When it had the red dot, it was only the dot that was lit up

Then I would recommend using that wizard. Pretty much any RROD problem that has happened is mentioned in that.

I appreciate the help. Unfortunately, the wizard asks me to pick from four images, none of which apply to me. :(

Did your Xbox show a red dot? What did it show when it showed the red dot you're talking about?
