If it doesnt come on and you have 3 lights flashing you have red light of death

what happend was you xbox overheated and it melted the CPU chip on your board, well didnt melt the chip but the solder around it there for it made soldering bridge connecting by melting 2 different component slots of solder into 1 so you will have to take it apart and resolder it. Or you can send it to Microsoft and they can fix it for ya for some $$$ out of your pocket but mostly they just give you new one and you loose all you data and saves so i did mine my self.

You tube has guy named gilski he shows how to fix ps3 and xbox red and yellow lights of deathare failure most commonly caused by overheating.

Two red lights mean that the Xbox 360 is overheating. This is not caused by the hard drive but more likely by the location that the xbox is in, or if it was run for an overly extended period of time. The hard drive is still usable and can be safely used on the new xbox.
