    It has overheated. Turn it off and let it cool down. Check your ventilation and make sure nothing is blocking it. after an hour or so try it again.

    Just remember to leave it plugged in when you do it.

    you said no, and then proved that he was right.

    the red ring of death is three red lights. you have two. that's 2/3 of the red ring of death.

    I know exactly how to fix this, even though I don't have an XBOX. Just email Microsoft about the situation. Send the system in to get fixed if you have to. Hope this helps.

    Has the problem happened more than once? Is the system well ventilated? If it is a constant problem and properly ventilated then maybe you should just go ahead and try to Red Ring it and get Microsoft to replace it. I would try everything you can before doing this though. With only 2 red lights Microsoft won't repair it for free.

    First things first, learn proper grammar. It might not help, but it can't hurt.
