Hi I just received my Spider GX Yesterday and the manual is of no help. I finally figured out that I have a version 1.0 and installed the chip via the pogo pins and the D0 wire and nothing lights up. I tried cleaning the points on the board where the pins come into contact, and still nothing. I noticed there is a mysterious wire assembly that has a red and black wire on it but no mention of it in the manual. Does this need to be hooked up in order for everything to light up? Also, What is the clear piece of plastic for that comes with the install kit?

Ok...So now I got the chip to finally light up. All lights come, but now it keeps rebooting no matter what bank I tell it to boot from. Any ideas? Anyone?

Another observation I forgot to mention in the previous post. All of the lights come on when the switch is in the off position on the black board, but as soon as I turn the switch on the D0 light goes out on the wires board and system restarts 3 times....any help out there before I throw this POS out...

I know how you feel but this is all part of installing a spider! almost no install is easy or robust ... it can take a long period of time before you see the spidy menu appear and all of this comes down to one simple problem ...

The stupid spiderchip is not making a good contact with the LPC holes. You need to fiddle with the chip

Move it a touch to the left
a touch to the right
back a ittle
forward slightly

and turn off and on between each slight adjustment and make sure the screw is down firmly but dont overtighten as this will damage the thread

apply pressure with a plastic or wooden object and see if you get better results !

Check out HackDaBox's Spiderchip Squeeze Guide !

Good Luck !
