Yes I know I should upgrade.... blah blah.....

anyway, i have finally sorted out the chip.... however for the past couple of days when I use the xbox for about 10 minutes, the screen goes blank and the eject switch flashes orange constantly...... nothing else happens.....

can someone give me some idea what that means please, i think it is something to do with the motherboard needing re-soldering in parts from getting scratched by the pins? Is there a list that explains what the lights mean? Thanks....

ok i have removed the modchip and am using the stock HD which has been untouched from new.....

After 20 minutes of playing a dvd the screen went blank and the eject switch flashed orange.....

now i know its not over heating, as all the fans are working and the 2 fans that i installed over a year ago to the front [where the HD sits] is still working....

I am going to have a closer look at the motherboard..... hope someone else can give me some more info, thanks.

After checking that out I am quite sure its something to do with the motherboard track..... think it might have been scratched by the modchip pins...... gonna have to do a DIY job this weekend....
