    Default Xbox dead... Red ring of death

    VERY VERY ANGRY!

    Mine died tonight, midway through a level of Lego: Pirates of the Caribean. Screen suddenly switched off.

    Restarted a couple of times, but it crashed during the intro to the game, then at the dashboard. Now it won't come on at all and surprise surprise, 3 red lights.

    My xbox is a later model (4 years old I think) and features the components which were supposedly designed to solve the RROD problem.

    Now going to be having a serious battle with Microsoft UK.

    My cousin lost his xbox for the 2nd time recently due to RROD. It died years ago and was fixed under the extended warranty service (following microsofts admisison that they were faulty). It died again a couple of weeks ago, clearly been "repaired" with the same crap components.

    Please tell me your stories, want plenty of ammunition to throw at MS when I demand a replacement for their substandard rubbish.

    I'll still argue with them mate. Lots of formal letters to waste their time...

    So ****ed off that they can release hardware that they KNOW is faulty.

    They're gonna have a hard time explaining themselves!
