Xbox has not enough ventilation?

#1RikiazPosted 11/20/2010 4:44:00 PM
My xbox keeps getting the 2 red light error saying it is not properly ventilated, however it has more then enough ventilation and it ONLY does this when I'm playing Black Ops. It turns off and gets the lights after about 5 minutes even when my xbox hasn't been played in hours. Anyone know how I can fix it or what is wrong with it?

Dust, clean it for once in your life.

Or maybe a fan broke inside the xbox.

Install the game to the hard drive and play it off of that, should fix your problem

Both my xbox and the power pack are in the open and lifted so all the vents are opened and I would think I would get the RROD but it only does this on Black Ops. I can play Oblivion, Fallout 3 and New Vegas, and Modern Warfare 2 just fine. Black Ops is the only game it does this on. I called the customer support and the guy I talked to said he didn't know what was wrong with it.

You dusted it? Like with a feather duster..?

Use canned air and a vacuum. It is probably extremely dusty. And idk why people told you to install...
