Video settings are stored in the EEPROM. What you need to do is get a friend and get the same setup you have and then memorize how to get back to it and change it. Or you could just try to remember it. Also, some old tv's have a vertical scroll knob somewhere on the TV. If you crank this puppy down or up (depending on your situation) it should slow down enough for you to fix the problem and see what your doing.

I also realized that you say this is the Eeprom trying to output a video mode incompatible with my Tv right? Well since I have the original harddrive, theoretically I should be able to erase the eeprom on the Xbox and reinstall the Eeprom from the original harddrive. Well as it turns out, I have all the info backed up already on my computer and should be able to FTP in to it and replace it. Will that work? Well I do have the origianal harddrive contents on my computer so it should work. Guess I'll find out huh?

PS: At a minimum, I hope that if anyone else has this problem,my solution might not be the best way to fix it, but at least it's an option.

Thankfully I had a backup of my original EEPROM. I d/led Configmagic, put my original eeprom.bin in the configmagic data directory, and burned it all to DVD. I ran the Configmagic blind install and it worked perfectly!!!!
Thanks to all those involved in the creation of configmagic. It's an outstanding product!!! Saved my a$$.
