    Whenever I turn my 360 on to play, it says it needs to shut off because of a ventilation error. This prevents me from playing. WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!?

    Sounds like either your 360s vents are dusty and clogged or the thermal compound is drying up either way it needs to be taken apart and cleaned the

    I've ran a Xenon without fans once, never had that error pop up tbh.

    But yeh, cleaning and replacing thermal paste might be the best solution.
