ok here goes

as a favor my uncle was going to mod my box because i found him a great deal on a used one
he modded his with the same aladdin LIVE chip and bios and his works fine
he has experiance with electronics so at first i doubted it was the conections

he installed mine and it boots like normal
the Chips LED stays lit blue
and he claims the Bios is flashed
the HDD is 100% unmodded stock dash ETC
i looked over the soder points and all seems fine, i even moved the d0 from the top to the bottom to make sure
and still the chip doesnt turn on when you hold the power button (LED does stay light blue but doesnt do anything)

Also his bios changes the Xlogo to blue but this one doesnt do a damn thing diffrent from stock
i also noticed my LED lights on the front power panel act as normal
his changes color when the chip is on
my board is a version 1.0 if it matters

i would try and Reflash but i cant find his programer and he is gone for 2 weeks
thank you TONS in advance, i finaly get my box back after like 3 months
and now its not working
so much for the thought that its faster if he does it lol

You don't need to flash the bios. If the chip had no/corrupt bios the machine would frag.
Either the chip is working fine but has a slichtly different bios that does not alter the start up animation colour or more likely the installation is not as good as you think.
Ground the wire from the D0 point on the Xbox (just for the moment) and see what happens. If the machine boots the nromal M$ bios (and you are sure about this) then the D0 connection on the Xbox is not making connection. (Grounding this forces boot from the LPC)
If the machine frags then the LPC points are to blame.
If the machine boots the modchip bios then the BT point is to blame.
