Question about freezing

So my Xbox got the red rings recently, which I understand is usually associated with reheating. The box itself is in a well ventilated area, but people in my house have a tendency to use it for hours at a time, usually for Netflix.
Anyway, I turned it back on the next day and it worked -- but unfortunately, it invariably freezes after turning it back on. It never lasts longer than about ten minutes.
So how should I go about fixing this? It's extremely old, but I will check the warranty later (don't have it near me now). But assuming I want to fix it myself, should I follow the same steps you would to fix a red ring issue, or is it a different problem now?
