    Hello, I've been experiencing freezing and the screen will get fuzzy on boot up recently, and it never makes it to fsd or dash, and then today I go to play, and it froze like usual, so I turned it off and re-booted it, and it gave me one red light and a E79 error, so I've tried unplugging all of my stuff, and then replugging the cords back in and booting, that didn't work so my question is this a simple fix, or a hard fix and how do I fix it?​

    try booting without your hdd
    E79 is a bad hdd or bad hdd connection

    It's been doing this for about two weeks, I once pulled it out and put it in a very open space, and put a fan on it and it worked for about an hour.

    sounds like you are going to need a reflow or at the very least rrod fix. if your screen was getting pixelated it's on it's way to rrod.

    No no I have the tools, they make a RROD repair kit, I was wondering if it was the one you were referring to?
