Someone brought be a box today.. to see what I can do..

it has NEVER been modded or opened..

I have replaced everything in it.. EXCEPT the motherboard and daughterboard..
I have swapped power supplies.. and eject boards.. and nothing.. not with known good ones.. AND the ones from the "bad" xbox work fine in another box.

So it boils down to the motherboard.

How or what can cause the motherboard to make it so the xbox does not even turn on.. and I mean not even try to turn on.??

the power connector on the motherboard?? thats the only thing I can think of.. but how would that go bad and not the powersupply or whatever?

Anyone have any ideas.?

again xbox does not boot .. doesn't make a noise..
power supply AND eject boards were replaced with known good ones.. only thing left is motherboard.

THANK YOU!

Might be a bit late but have you inspected the motherboard up close? (I mean reallllly close, with a magnifying glass if available). Not always, but sometimes you can spot a blown component on the board, if you have good eyes..... It'll look dark/discoloured around the area.

Also, perform a "smell test" of the motherboard (dont laugh). If you smell burnt, you know the general area that blew up.
