    Gutted. This is the 2nd time this happened. The 1st time it was still under warrenty from Gamestation but that was september 2007. I've heard microsoft will sort it out as long as it's less than 3 years. Anyone know anything about this?

    I've had a curry (jalfrezi) about an hour ago plus chilli con carne for dinner and before that a sweet chilli chicken sandwich so tomorrow is gonna be all about the ring of fire. But tonight is about the 3 red rings of death. Bastards!!!!

    Yeh, I had it.

    Microsoft will fix it if it's under 3 years.

    Nice one Brofski. What's the best way to go about getting it sorted? Email them or ring them?

    Ring them.

    They come pick it up I think. Then drop it off when it's fixed. Might be a while though.

    Check their website, it should tell you what to do exactly.
