    Red Rings!

    My box got the fucking red rings. Great fucking timing, lol. Anyway shouldn't be a problem as I am just going to borrow my friends xbox as he doesn't really use his. I'm still kinda pissed though. 2nd time going through this.

    3 of them bad boys which equals no bueno. And I gotta pay 100 to get it fixed, might as well just get a new box. In the meantime Imma use my friends xbox, which is very clutch.

    Yeah. You'd be better off to spend the extra $150 and get one of the Pros that has the new power supply in it that doesn't overheat.

    I had that happen last year 2 days before Madden came out. I "rented" an Xbox from Walmart while mine was being repaired.

    HotRod, before you pay $100, talk to Helli. He knows a guy who can fix them for I think $75. Same guy who got us all the game early actually so you know he's reliable and comes thru

    If its less than 3 years old Microsoft should fix it for free. Otherwise you can use the same method I did. Fixed my xbox for less than 10 dollars of bolts and washers from Lowes. A guy I work with fixed his 3 rings with the same method and its still running strong after over two months.
