Get it hot. Put it in an enclosed space while playing a game.

Honestly, I would send it in saying the problems you have, assuming we can't help you.

I'll tell you the exact and painless way, and even the fun way to get the 3 red lights (mine did this way, and I'm going to send it off):

Play games

Thats basically all you have to do, and you can be assured it'll go eventually.

I love my Xbox 360 though. No denying that. I just want it back...

Your console may actually not have the fault. You may be alright, but oh well... but yeah, read my first couple of lines.

lol.. all you have to do to stop the 360 from dying it to open it up and put on a heatsink which is worthwhile having, not difficult to do.. as long as you have some heatsink compound
