Hi, I have an xbox with a broken motherboard (just FRAG without apparently reasons), so i need to find a replacement...looking for it on ebay I found for few euros an xbox that, according to the seller, has a problem: sometimes when he play a game the xbox just freeze (and very rarely unlocks by itself). I've asked if this problem occur also on the dashboard and he answered no, so i though to a problem related to the hard drive (may be bad sectors?)
The seller said also that when the xbox freeze, he can ear the sound of DVD drive (or hard drive?) working....however no error messages appear on the screen and the xbox has to be rebooted.
Any of you experienced this problem? According to you there are huge possibilites of a problem related to the motherboard instead of hard drive or dvd drive?
could be a few thngs really, id generaly imagine its overhearing though. could be any major component over heating though.. CPU/Gpu (replacing thermal paste may help fix it) Hard disk is also possible. But id personaly replace the thermal paste, and keep checking the hard disk for apparant heat.
Other components could also be an issue, But those 3 are the main culprits IMO
