Why does my Xbox keep freezing?


So, it worked fine this morning, I downloaded a new update thing, it took quite a while. But then I shut it off for about 3 hours and when I went to play it, it won’t work. It gets to the part where your background shows up, and the thing at the bottom pops up and says I’m online, but then it freezes. It was ontop of my tv, but I moved it under my window because it felt somewhat hot. I’ve only had it since maybe January or February, so it’s not that old. I’ve had no red ring of death problems, and it only freezes every once in a while with a game.

I’ve never had this problem before, I think maybe something happened with the update? Any advice?

Also, I don’t play it much, maybe 3-4 times a week for only about 2-4 hours at a time.

  1. Cause it’s a Xbox., i went through 3 Xboxes and they always break randomly or suddenly freeze or w/e just go to the store ask for a new one i got 2 new ones for free this way.

  2. i literally just had the same problem, and it seems a lot of other people have too! for some odd reason, when i unhooked my kinect from the xbox it started to work. maybe its just a fluke, but. it worked for me, hope it works for you too if you have one, please let me know so i can inform others if thats the issue!
