I just installed xbox media center on my xbox and I thought everything went ok. When I load an original game it will play the game for a few min. then the screen will go black and the led will flash. I cannot power off when this happens or will the cd drive open and I have to unplug. When I dont load any games or dvds the xbox will stay powered on for as long as you would like. Did I break anything when I took my xbox aprt because it worked before this... But i already tried to cd drives and it does the same thing.

any ideas??? sad.gif

Yes I plugged back in the fan. It flashes orange but I think the led is all weird now because of the softmod.

A console may also flash orange if it's overheating, and given that your console only does this while "under load", that could well be the problem.

Could be a loose heatsink?
