    this a over heating problem, you have to remove the case, and the remove heat sink from proceesor. there is a repair for this just, do a google search.

    I would use some type of thermo grease before you reinstall heatsink back on.

    hope this help

    x-clamp plus the penny fix works, I have personally fixed a few of my friends Xbox's and they are still to this very day working.
