your eeprom is probably corrupt or empty. It is VERY odd the Xenium OS doesn't pop up because it doesn't rely on the system's eeprom to boot...perhaps you didn't install it properly? Make sure the light on the chip is GREEN when booting.

Yes the light is green.
I even upgraded the OS to 2.3.0 using the recovery switch(which was red then green then blue then green), i got some video then but it wasnt very clear and it was not color.
if it wasnt for that i would agree with you on the install. This little problem is making me lose my hair.
it took me 20 min for the solderless chip installation, it is taking me a more than a week to figure out this problem, go figure. smile.gif

Your eeprom is corrupt. You can fix it via the xenium os or thru the enigmah switch disc.

thanks acemilo, tried enigmah switch disc but since it continuly reboots it does seem to pick up the disc. as for the xenium OS, IT does not show up, i can not explain that one. that is the reason i bought the chip thinking it will boot to its own OS, but no luck here.

One thing you could try is this


If the xenium is installed correctly with green led on the front of the xbox AND xenium BUT no video, change the lead to the TV, I found on one xenium install that my rgb scart lead had nothing showing the xenium OS UNTIL i replaced with the original composite lead that the xbox came with, daft i know, but hey lol
