After I installed the update for FIFA 08, I then got Three Red Lights. Sometimes they would come on, other times the game would start and then freeze.
Anybody help?

If I am correct that's the "red ring of death", I'd look that up Rct.
Also since this is console related this could go in the console section.

*Edit*

It's a general hardware failure if it's three red lights, you can get it fixed for a small price, but how long did you have your system? That counts since it's a 3 year warranty

Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

The demons of hell have possesed your console, the portal to hell itself has always been inside the console, due to an error which is inside every 360 ever made ever. For having the nerve to play your 360 you have been punished by said demons preventing you from playing it, as you have angered them.

You can either send it off to get it fixed and get an exorcism, or it can make a nice fireplace ornament.

I've had it for about 2 years this Christmas.
And I didn't put it in the Console Section because that sub-forum is labelled "Console Games", and this isn't really related to a game.
And yeah, I know it's the red ring of death and I've looked on Xbox Support, but I was wondering if any of the wise heads on here knew anything more than the corporates.

Well are your AV cables plugged into you tv/PC monitor? (yes you can do that)
That's one possible reason, other than that don't try to fix it yourself let the pros handle it.

Or you could try a gamestop or any other gaming store, I can't guarantee a better price though :P

I'm in the UK, so no Gamestop for me. I think I'll just try it out now again, and if it does the same then I'll contact Microsoft.

I know that, but I didn't think they did a repair system thing?

Sent my ps2 in to my local game shop and it was fixed for free ;D, it works now!
Weird thing is my warranty expired years prior to its hardware problem <_<

The same thing happened to me for Assassins Creed. Unfortunately, the only way i could fix it was to send it to Texas. The problem was overheating, so i placed an Ice bag on top of it until the shipping box arrived, it ran a tad better, but i don't know if it was because of the bag.
Hell, Skyward Descent is pure win!
