Possible Overheat Problem
Posted 28 April 2004 - 10:47 PM
Xbox = 1.3
Western Digital 250 gig
Xecuter 2.3B Pro
I installed the hard drive and the chip for a friend. Running xecuter's most recent bios... Boots into avalaunch. Was copying applications over the the F Drive and started to backup games. We stopped after a while so I could show him how it worked. And then I got an all white screen in halo co-op. There was no sound and the xbox was still running.
I turned off the xbox and back on and it fragged. Same thing happened a few times. I thought the box was hot so I let it rest a while and booted into avalaunch. I checked the heat settings and at idle it didn't get any higher than 120 for cpu and 96 for mobo.
I went to go backup more games and it went through one and I check the temps and they were still the same. Out of curiosity I let the box sit for about 20 minutes ON and watched the heat and it never went up. Right before I was about to give up... It did the same thing. White screen and I couldn't log into the FTP. So the box locks up.
First I turned up the settings to run the fan at about 80% and the temps dropped about 10 degrees and held at idle. But another hour later, sitting in avalaunch, locked up again with the white screen.
It frags when I turn it back on, so i have to let it sit for a while to cool down and then it works... I don't understand what could be going on. The only thing I can think of is a heat problem. The xbox is about 6 months old.
Could it be a GPU heat problem? He has never had a problem like this before today.
