Default 3 red lights of doom :(

My Xbox 360 has died or seems to have done on me

It started when I went to test the TV out in Curry's and I took my Xbox 360 with me and connected it up as I have been doing through VGA.

Anyhow, it worked, but the screen looked strange, so they got me a Component cable, and set it to 720p, which looked right.

Then we shut the system off, and powered it back on, and low and behold, lights 1,3 and 4 flashing away at me.

This suggests a hardware failure:

http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair...rror-codes.htm

Weird thing is, that it happened in just switching it off and on.
I have tried countless of things that site suggests to no avail...

Error code:

0102 (using the eject/sync trick)
Unknown, but could be due to GPU issues apparently

You think if I contact Microsoft, they may give me a new HDMI version?

EDIT:

I also went to Game after this happened where I purcashed it, and they went into the back, and it worked apparently. Well he said it did...
But on two TV's now at home, I cannot get it to boot.

Yeah, because HDMI seems the best option now.
If I get the same back, working of course, I might sell it for a HDMI version.

0800 numbers are free right?

Yeah, but chances are, i'll get the same one back anyway
But yeah, if I sell, I may.

Just sent the e-mail for the thing to be delivered, whatever it is.
