Default 360 Problem

Well I was just about to play some 2k8 and I turned on my 360 but instead I get 3 red rings, the only 1 that isn't lit up is the top left. I turn it off and turn it back on, and none of the lights light up, but the screen is like a red and black checker board.

Has anyone else had this happen?

yup.

https://service.xbox.com/servicehome.aspx?scrx=1

log in and then fill out all the junk.

They will send you a box to ship your 360 and in about 2 weeks you'll get it back.

Thanks. Now how much will this cost me or would I just be better off going with a new 360 or a PS3?

You've never heard of the RRoD and you own a 360? Strange...

No, I've heard of it. I just wasn't sure the best way to go about things. Like whether to send it off or just get a new system.

It should cost you nothing. They'll actually give you a three year warrantee, I think.

I guess I'll have to wipe the dust off my old xbox and play some Inside Drive for about 2 weeks.

360s are total junk. a buddy at my work's 360 just went kaput...again. this is his 2nd one to die. he's gotta do the whole "send the system back in the coffin" thing and wait. if i had the $, i'd get a ps3.
