I just got the three red lights of death and the problem may be that there is a lot of dust in the 360 so how can I remove it?

There's this thing called the compress gas duster, look it up online and you'll see.

 I don't think yu can use those though, it says it in the manual, the warranty doesn't work then

a hoover and a vacuum are the same thing lol (im in the uk). just suck out the dust through the air vents. dont open up the box, because that could void the warranty

It's the same in the States too. Apparently someone has never used a vacuum before.

Hoover is kind of like Kleenex. They're not actually called hoovers, they're called vaccuums. They're not actually called Kleenex, they're tissues. We use Hoover and Kleenex anyway. Oh, chapstick is another one. It's really lip balm.

For the sake of 360 users everywhere.  Don't use the vaccum on the xbox.  That doesnt seem very smart too me.  A simple air can from walmart for 5 bucks will do you more good than harm.

Mmm i doubt there's anything you can do if it has 3 rings of death,just take it into Microsoft or back too the store you got it from for a new one
