xbox ring of death

Anyone who`s used Microsoft`s XBOX 360 gaming console will agree that it is one of the better gaming consoles out there in terms of games, graphics and ease of use. Unfortunately, the console is made wholly by Microsoft, a company well-known for shipping software usually still full of bugs. While computer software users will cringe at the sight of the Blue Screen of Death, we XBOX 360 owners continuously curse the xbox ring of death which happens when three of the lights in the XBOX ring light up in red. Nicknamed the Red Ring of Death or RROD, the xbox ring of death usually means we have to turn off the console and let it cool off, then restart it and hope for the best. Most of the time this works, but if the xbox ring of death persists, we`ll have to send it off for repair to the horror of horrors: Microsoft support.

Now, while I`m a proud XBOX 360 owner, I`m not a profound Microsoft supporter as the xbox ring of death has reared its ugly head four times now. The first time I called in for my unrestartable xbox ring of death, I got back a refurbished XBOX 360 that, surprise, also had an xbox ring of death. The first shipment took nearly 4 weeks while the second re-shipment took about 3 to 4 weeks. Considering that I encountered my first xbox ring of death after only a month`s use, this meant I only had a couple of days left on my standard 90-day warranty. While I didn`t have to pay for repairs, I had to pay for shipping which was quite costly if you live far away from the repair center.

After another month of use, I was left high and dry with yet another xbox ring of death and no warranty. Being the harassed yet still loyal customer, I shelled out $140 bucks along with shipping for another 4 to 5 weeks to Microsoft support. This time around, I didn`t encounter the xbox ring of death for almost half a year, but shortly after that I got another 3 red lights to stretch my wallet.

Three times of being fooled by Microsoft has left a very bitter feeling in my gut and going to them again means another $140 bucks plus shipping for another console. That`s going to burn me for a month or so. There are many others like me are out there on the Internet so I trawled the forums seeking for a cheaper and more effective solution. The towel fix sounded plain stupid as I could just as well melt something else while the freezer fix sounded equally stupid. I eventually stumbled upon various DIY guides and how-to videos. Most of the free ones were either too sketchy or too grainy for me to learn much from.

However, after a trip to http://7ceed2r5ue0n2kb7dfmnomvr0p.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=XBOX360REDRINGOFDEATH, I found myself intrigued by the idea of fixing my xbox ring of death problem by myself. Since I wasn`t going back to Microsoft and I didn`t have any warranty, I figured that I could at least give it a go especially since they mentioned that they`d return the money if my XBOX 360 broke down within 60 days.

While the link to http://7ceed2r5ue0n2kb7dfmnomvr0p.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=XBOX360REDRINGOFDEATH was rather long, the actual process was quite straightforward as the PDF was simple to read and easy to follow. As a bonus the member`s area at http://7ceed2r5ue0n2kb7dfmnomvr0p.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=XBOX360REDRINGOFDEATH had very clear videos showing each step of repair in crystal clear clarity. Rather than trying to prove the under an hour claim, I took my time - and it only took about an hour and 35 minutes. While the guide over at http://7ceed2r5ue0n2kb7dfmnomvr0p.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=XBOX360REDRINGOFDEATH mentioned that it fixes many problems with the XBOX 360, I`m just happy that my XBOX 360 isn`t giving me xbox ring of death problems any more as I`ve been using my XBOX 360 for more than a month now.

I`m just your usual gamer guy, so I can`t say for sure that it fixed the GPU problem or anything like that, but it did fix the RROD problem. Games do seem to run faster and smoother now. If only I`d discovered the guide before going for Microsoft support, I wouldn`t have been shortchanged $140 bucks.
