Is My Motherboard Bad?
Posted 08 October 2005 - 05:00 AM
Recently, the xbit light would not turn on and so it would not boot. I thought maybe the connection was bad.
Then it started fragging.
So, I opened it up, removed the chip, took an original hard drive and plugged it in. Now, when I load it up, it gives me 06 (unlocked hard drive) error.
I read some posts about how the motherboard might be scratched and it could be crap. Would this problem happen with a bad motherboard.
The original hard drive should be locked. It came out of my friend's box. He had just installed an x-bit.
I can still connect to the chip. But, when I try to put a bios on it, it just continues to erase the slot well above the amount of space on the slot. I have used this computer before, but not for a while. I hear there is a problem with USB 2.0. Is my card screwed?
Am I screwed at this point? Or should I see if I can line up the pins and put the x-bit back on?
I just want to know if my motherboard is bad. If it is not, then I can always buy a new chip. I don't want to buy a new xbox.
Thanks in advance.

So, does that mean my motherboard is ok?
And does it sound like my chip is busted?

Get a new chip and you'll be fine.

I will order a new chip and hopefully I can get access to my hard drive again.
I appreciate the help.
