    I've got probs with me Xbox it. It was playing fine I was jamming away on Guitar Hero 3 then started to loose the graffics witch is a bit off putting and sending invites out to my friends list to join the game on its own so thought id try Guitar Hero 2 that was even wose try Forza 2 all I got was a load of lines on the screen. Has anyone esle had this prob??

    Had graphics issues on advanced warfighter once (certain elements disappearing) but a reboot and all was fine. I'd just make sure it's not too warm. Maybe now is the time to swap for an elite with the new falcon motherboard!

    Provided you're still in warranty if it were to overheat until you get the red ring of death MS will swap out the motherboard for a new falcon unit

    Don't forget MS extended the warranty to 3 years, so get in touch and they'll repair/refurb it. My nephew had a similar problem on his and they turned it around pretty quickly.
