    The Red Ring of Death (RRoD) is the petname gamers have given to a specific error code the Xbox 360 gets when it gets too hot and the GPU unit comes loose from the motherboard. The error is notified by threed red lights appearing around the "power" button of your 360 console. Microsoft fixes this problem for free if you send your console in to them.

    Ways to prevent the RRoD: Simply don't put your 360 in an enclosed environment, like a cubby hole on your entertainment stand. Don't set it on the carpet, keep the area around it dust-free, and just genuinely take care of it like you would any piece of hardware. The RRoD only occurs when people don't take proper care of their console.
