Early symptoms of RROD? What is happening to my XBOX?
My Xbox360 has a weird message popping up when I turn it on. It tells me that I can still play games and communicate with other players. But it wont let me accsess the marketplaces or view the community pages or anything else. It's like the xbox is strictly being ued for playing games. Also the color scheme is off sometimes and when I view pictures from a game, there is a major color distortion. That is accompained by the offset of the top half of words; they are slightly moved to the right of the bottom half of the words. PLEASE ADVISE BEFORE I CALL MICROSOFT.
...Before you Call Microsoft
What's happening is exactly what you have The Early Signs of the "Red Ring Of Death". What your xBox is doing is limiting the amount of action per use per user. Which is pre programed into the system and software. Only allowing you to play games and communicate will only allow it to operate at a certain percentage.
Meaning the Processors won't expand or overheat any more than they are. I would Suggest checking out my HUB which details a Guide on how to fix it and other ideas of fixing your xBox to make it run like new again.

It'll give you what you need to know.
Hope it helps,
