The first thing you need to do is actually determine where the problem lies. This will involve opening up your console and having a look at a few things inside. Most of the problems are caused by overheating issues with the GPU [graphics processing unit]. When the GPU heats up too much it starts to malfunction and this is one of the main causes of the Xbox 360 freezing.

Although this may seem like a serious problem the damage is actually not permanent and can be solved by points and thermal paste between the graphics processing unit and its heatsink. In order to access this area of the console you need to remove the DVD drive and the hard drive. Once these two things are out of the console you now have access to the motherboard which you can take out.

Carefully remove the heatsink of the GPU and clean the surface with some acetone or cleaning spirits. This will remove any old thermal compound which you do not want to get in the way of the new thermal compound. Get some good quality thermal compound like Arctic Silver and apply small amount to the surface of the GPU, you only need a small amount as the compound will spread out when you attach the heatsink. Once the heatsink is reattached to the top of the GPU you need to tighten the clamps on the bottom of the motherboard so it doesn’t fall off. Need to reassemble your Xbox 360 but putting the motherboard back in the hard drive and finally the DVD drive.

If you followed these instructions properly and let’s face it that hard to follow, you should have solved the problem of your Xbox 360 freezing due to glitches with the GPU. However your Xbox 360 console could be suffering from numerous problems at the same time, this is the case with yours you might need to consult a Xbox 360 console repair guide.
