    It's caused by the early xbox's overheating and the solder failing because of too much use. They had so much trouble with it happening in the first few years that Microsoft just fix/replace them all straight off now, and the new models have different internals to prevent it happening. Originally it was people just played on it all day every day, but I suppose long term use can have the same effect. You can buy cooling fans for them that fit on the back and increase airflow to help cool it all, but they are noisy...

    It's know as the Red Ring of Death, after the Windows Blue Screen of Death...

    I sent my sonsback 6 times eventually they gave in to THIS IS NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE and replaced with a new machine. Keepat them even out of warranty if the devicehas not been abused it should last longer than 2 years. Hope you have some luck.
