New Motherboard And Hdd
Posted 09 June 2004 - 09:07 PM
I just got it today and put it in my box, but when I hit the power, there's no video or sound, and it frags with the av cable in and flashes orange with it out. I put my x2.2l+ to see if it would boot an evox disk, because there's no dashboard on the hdd, but it still flashes orange and red/green. I don't know if it's my harddrive that needs to have the necessary files injected, or the motherboard is bad.
I think I have a pretty good understanding how these xboxwes work, but this one is just confusing to me. any suggestions?

It's not worth 80.00.

Once I got the board I cleaned it with a vacuum, checked it for modifications (someone had tried something like a "matrix" with it) then plugged it in.
Since I did not have a locked hard drive it came up with the animation and errored.
Perfect, fully functional.
Jumpered the two sets of pins (why do the tutorials say you need a wire from WR to WE when there is already a jumper pad?)
Temporarily screwed on a matrix chip (from which I removed the D0 pin purposely to make it easy to manually hit the D0 with a fine wire), locked a new hard drive to it & set it up with Slayers.
Pulled the mod chip did a tsop flash. done.
I'm a happy camper, this old Xbox was driving me nuts.
Bottom line, you can do something similiar about the drive, but the motherboard has to be fine.
