The first thing I would do is clean the machine. Open the case and dig in to the internals using this guide and blast everything with compressed air. Once you are sure that everything is nice and clean, re-assemble and be sure that where-ever you place your xbox, it has sufficient ventilation (IE it's not in some small cabinet or on carpet). You may also consider some sort of external cooling fan and/or setting the xbox so it's standing with the CD drive vertical to give more cooling surface area.

Thanks for the fast answer but the problem is still there. I Had the console cleaned. I used external Fans. Is there an other solution?


leave the cover off, plug in, turn on, watch the fans.. they might need replacing, or you may need to replace the thermal paste a la RROD repair before you get the RROD.
