I've just had this come up on the display whilst starting up the console. Happens within 10-15 secs of powering it on. The system is completely frozen, but no abnormal lights on the front of the xbox.

It's the component model, so no HDMI. Tried changing the cable but it is intermittently happening with both.

I'd start calling tech support

If it's the component model only, it's a good deal old and that points it towards the GPU on the fritz alright.

Yep time to ring M$ sadly though without a RedRing report you might not quality for a free warranty repair :(

It's most likely the GPU is on the blink. It's not something you're going to be able to fix. If its under warranty then call tech support to get it fixed. If its not under warranty then youre probably out of luck. The same thing happened with one of my previous Xbox's. I'm on my third now.

Besides it being a 360? ( joke )

My 360 started to freeze right before it died ... it was three weeks out of warranty and Microsoft wouldn't fix it for free.

Just run it until it red rings, then you should qualify for a warranty fix with microshaft.
