3 Failed Boot + Frag After Xbox On Too Long
Posted 08 September 2006 - 12:33 PM
My Xbox will boot up fine and run fine. I attempt to leave it on all night and when I wake up in the morning it turns off (It will stay on most of the night though, i notice it when I get up at night)
When I get up, as I said, it's off. I go to turn it back on and it goes into the 3 failed boots and FRAG. I currently run Xenium ICE with XBMC as my main dash and the background dash being EvoX. I run the bios Evox M8+ for a Big F partition and V1.6 motherboards.
What it appears happens is that when I try to leave it on, this problem occurs. When this occured yesterday I tried to fix it but all the LEDs on my solderless adapter were illuminated, so I was stumped. I left the PSU unplugged and went to class and came back at the end of the day -- tried to turn it on and it worked 1-2-3.
THis time around I am going to try to leave the PSU unplugged again and see if that clears things up. Is there any way I can permanently fix this? It's getting to be quite annoying.

What could cause this? I am interested to know because I know my brother does not have this problem with his xbox and he has very similar specs as far as chip and bios

Thats a good point, it's possibly overheating, I'll try the XBMC feature that they have twhere it regulates the fan speed automatically to maintain a certain temperature. Thanks a bunch man!

Luckily, if my chip fries, i have an extra Xenium Ice chip, so thats a plus.
The reason I think that you are right is because I let my xbox cool off for a few minutes then it booted back up..but only 5 minutes later it wouldnt boot up again...ill try this out over the next few nights and hopefully my problem is solved.

80 mm fan mod and 12V fan mod are just fan upgrades basically?
If thats the case I can get one real cheap, but does it just come out of the xbox and the new one pop back in as easily? Or do i need to do hardcore case modding?
If you have a link to the mod, that would be cool

Why are you leaving the Xbox running all night if you are in bed?
If it only happens when you do this why not just turn it off when you go to bed
