How do I get my Xbox to stop overheating?
Don't play on it for a long amount of time.
Shut down completely and plug the plugger out for about 30 minutes and there you go. Mine worked that way. Just to tell you. :)
Stand it upright and move it away from anything else that could be covering vents or creating an additional source of heat. You can also buy additional fans to connect to the back of 360's, these are after market but should work fine.
Get a fan
Also make sure there is nothing obstructing the vent or fan.
There isn't much you can do.This same thing happens to my Xbox since it is the greatest thing ever and I can't put it down. Just gotta live with it.
Open it up and spray air in it. Clean it, it might be full of dust.
I bought a fan and put it on its side and it works fine
It shouldn't overheat. In the mean time put a portable fan in front of it. and run the fan when the xbox is on
