I know people say software doesnt cause RROD...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
But I downloaded the Ninja Gaiden 2 demo yesterday. The first time I tried it, my 360 locked up during load screen. 2nd time, locked up during load... and RROD. did the towel trick for like 20 mins, and it started right up. Popped in Gears for like 20 mins or so, runs great, dvd's work, live works, xbox arcade games work too . Tried the demo one more time (imp of the perverse...) and it locks, then RROD on me again.

So, i towel it again and it works once more.

No more NG2 demo for this kid.

My xbox sits in an open glass shelf, laying on its side. I clean the vents regularly and there has never been an issue with heat before. It's an elite, less than 1 year old.

Just throwing this out there for those that dont think software can contribute to RROD. I'm sure if you try hard enough you can explain this away but I for one am convinced.

I'll have to say that this is an isolated incident. If it was wide spread xbox would be removing the demo. Perhaps you got a corrupt download and it didn't set a system variable properly.
