ok i got a broken 1.0 xbox, and the only thing i see wrong with it is that those huge yellow things on the power supply are brown and look melted. and i was wondering if a computer power supply would work? or if anyone could donate me a 1.0 power supply? thanks

If you are lucky it may be just the fuse however it could be the other parts too

I just sent my PSU to an electrician and he may be able to fix it or at least thats what he said, someone wanted to charge me 40 dollars to fix it O_o

I am wondering if its possible to adapt a normal AT PSU to the xbox? the XPSU I got is a Delta - 12 Pin..maybe I could just connect it or modify it but I dont want to make any further move until someone confirms this will work

Anyone tried this?

I'm sorry, but with the statement

, i'd suggest that you dont have the knowledge to read a schematic, let alone the ability to work on high voltage power supplies.

pick one up from ebay for like $15 or so,
