Re: RROD In xbox360: What Exactly It Is?

Hi, You don't know about RROD? It simply stands for Red Rings Of Death. Basically Xbox 360 had encountered many problems since the development of it from its release in 2005. To solve the problem of customers from this defective consoles, Microsoft has extended the Xbox 360's manufacturer's warranty to three years, if you are getting "General Hardware Failure" error report. This error can be caught by three quadrants of the ring around the power button flashing red. Which is your "Red Rings of Death". To solve these problems Microsoft modified its console to improve its reliability. It includes modifications such as reduction in the number, size, and placement of different parts of console. Basically it is an overheating issue in the chipset of the Xbox 360 video console provided by the Microsoft. But, you can buy it, as it can be cured and now it is not giving that much RROD problem as it given at starting days.
