(Im a newbie)

I've added some lights and a fan to my Xbox so I've had to open the system up blah blah blah after everything was put back together I turned my system on and after about 10-20 seconds of it being turned on the light around the eject button blinks green and red unsure.gif
Could this be a connection error Im confused?

Make sure that everything is connected, all cables, etc. If that does'nt help, check your xbox motherboard for spalshes of solder, or suface mount capacitors/resistors/inductors that might have been broken off.

could be something you added,

remove the electrical connections and try again,
maybe the things are drawing too much current?

First off, get an original name. Spartan 117? gee, that's novel. I see so many variatins of this I could puke.

Secondly, if you wired it right, it should b fine. Check for short circuits...the soldering points or LED legs could be touching something (metal shielding, HDD case, etc.)

Also, make sure none of the cables are loose. I've spent an hour frantically going over my XBox, then sheepishly grinning as I see the fan cable came loose from the mobo.
