Okay well this all started when I got L.A. Norie and it froze every 10 minutes in-game. Then it just got worse it spread to my other games then to the dashboard. Everything would freeze at random times. Sometimes I get a E 71 message with the one ring blinking on the console also. I tried to fix it with the reset system thing and haven't seen the E 71 in awhile (About 2 start ups) The only major problem now is the disk drive sounds like its about to blow up on start up and in game everything is lagging even though my connection is full green. I even check my connection to my router is full bars and when I play on my PS3 which is right next to my 360 its games run fine no connection problems at all. I have never touched the 360 in anyway to damage it and this is probley my third time trying to get it fixed :( any ideas?
