I had installed gen2 mod long ago (enigmah) , but since it could not be flashed, I used the tutorial here for TSOP flashing and removing gen2 mod. Everything worked fine. Added large HD a month ago, and went smooth as well.
About 1 week ago when I tried powering it up, it Fragged
I then unplugged the power cord and TV out as well as network cable, and moved to another TV, and it worked again. Awhile later it froze up while loading a game, so I Powered DN, and it fragged again after. I tapped the top of it, and it worked.
Gradually this problem had gotten worse, and after reading on here, I cleaned the board with a cotton swab and alcohol. Now it Frags everytime
1: If it is a bad Trace, why did it happen gradually? And what is the best way to fix it?
2: If I cannot repair it, can I just replace MB? Where to buy, and How much usually ?
3: If I install MOD will it allow XboX to boot? Don't feel like wasting $40 on a mod if not for sure.
Any advice is definately appreciated.
