I need some help with this one. On my brothers 360, he puts the game in and about 3 minutes into bootup, the screen goes white, and it kinda dies. No red ring of death, and it can be restarted.

Can anyone provide me with some good guides or ideas were to start?

Check the disc for any scratches, possible damage that has been made, any cracks, etc.

Sounds like more of a disc problem instead of the console itself.

You'll get the ring eventually. The same thing happened (twice >>; ) to my old 360, and eventually it'll conk out. The first time it happened was because of some shoddy assembly on Microsoft's part. There was some tiny little part in the disk drive that came loose due to some sort of magnetism, and that just screwed up the console.

You could try and check for any possible scratches on the games disc, if not, it may be the first signs of the Red Ring of Death, just like Erebus stated in his post.

Exactly what happened with mine. Two or three days after we first noticed problems it decided to red ring. We performed home repairs that I wouldn't recommend unless you know what you're doing (both my parents are IT professionals and had some idea about what they were doing), but I could try and find the instructions we followed to fix it. Obviously it'll void your warranty, though, so do think about it before you jump straight in.
