Ok, I'm modding my 1.0 xbox with a xbit 1.5 chip. Obviously the lpc holes are filled, so I went to get a desoldering iron from radioshack. I got out about 5 of them, the others are only partially removed. When I say partially removed, I mean that I only got the top layer of solder. My desoldering iron's tip isnt small enough to get down in the middle of the hole. I took the motherboard out, and tried the other side but I ended up almost melting the board itself.
I've tried everything, including red-hot sewing needles, safety pins, and even hammering the solder through the other side. Is it possible to still use the chip over the solder? When I tried it before any of the solder was removed I only got a red/green light and a mocking squeek. I have a bios loaded, so that's not the problem.
I just put everything back together and tried it, i got nothing but the ged/green light. There is no picture or error message, just a blank screen. I even took the mod chip out and made sure all the xbox connections were right, and it's still beeping. I'm not sure if I messed up my motherboard or something but it might be screwed.
So, any suggestions? Please?
Sounds like you messed up the motherboard.. If you were prepared to try and desolder why didnt you just buy a normal chip and solder it in??
anyway, the best thing to do now would be to probably get your board repaired (or if you think you can manage, have a go yourself) you will need to remove the solder from the LPC points, use braid, it works much nicer than a desoldering iron, and solder in a pinheader.
Then you will need to find a diagram of the alternative LPC points on the motherboard, and connect these points to the pin in the corresponding point.
I hope this makes sense
