Is my XBox taking a crap on me already?

    I currently own only two games on the Xbox - NCAA 2003 by EA Sports and NFL 2k3 by Sega. Whenever I play the college game I've been getting a ton of "flickering" and total picture loss. The screen gets progressively dark and then I lose the picture altogether. This hasn't happened on my NFL game, but the screen does flicker at times. I know it's not the TV (since my PS2 and GC work fine) and neither game has any scratches on them. I pray it's not the laser in the XBox.

    Does anyone out there know what might be causing this? Any quick remedy or ideas?

    It's also worth trying the disks in someone else's XBox... And try the vid cable with another xbox...
