I've just switched to one of those power supplies from lik sang (with the power switch), so I can actually get my box to turn on, having now moved from the UK to canada, however, the xbox only stays on for around 5 minutes and the harddrive is constantly thrashing away, it works perfectly in both normal and modchip mode, but just wont stay on, any suggestions?

btw my mod chip has been installed for quite some time and has worked perfectly, and continues to apparently work just fine, I don't think that is causing the problem.

opened it up and selltaped 12v 80mm fan to the top of the heatsink, seems to be much cooler now smile.gif

Although can't put the top back on... Small price to pay until I figure something better out

Correction not an overheating problem, runs at 37degrees, still turns off, took off heatsink, finger tested cpu, cold, still wont turn on, fan shifts and harddrive starts to wind up, then turns off again... Confused..

Still wont turn on appears screwed... Very confused, and annoyed....
