why does my xbox 360 keep freezing???

ok, so a few weeks ago, my xbox started freezing. i figured it was just a "one time deal," but it kept happening. it happens roughly every 5-10 minutes. mostly happens during games (really annoying) or sometimes happens when the console is first turning on. freezing is usually accompanied with a sharp, short whistle type sound.

any explanation is GREATLY appreciated

How is your Xbox sitting? Could be the way its positioned or maybe your xbox got bumped during gameplay

hate to say it, but it could be the beginning of your xbox getting the RROD. Mine kept doing that then one day I went to turn it on and the dreaded 3 red rings were there.

Yeah, i didnt want to say it but sounds just like it. As long as its still under warranty you can just send it back. Xbox is really great on getting you a new one pretty fast. well atleast my last two were pretty quick.

Mine has froze up a few times, normally not lasting long, but will happen as I'm in the Dashboard, going into a game, and still pressing the guide button. Haven't had problems so far, but it does occasionally act like it wants to get stuck.
