If you frag when the chip is enabled (even an intermittent problem that corrects itself) the box is failing to load a bios from the LPC. The fact that it actually does work means the bios isn't the problem. Bascially your LPC points aren't solidly connected anymore and are making inconsistent/intermittent contact which could be affected by something as small as heat. You'll need to reconnect. I have a basic modchip troubleshooting guide in my sig, it's a quick read and covers this issue specifically. I believe case 4 is the one but it's an easy read and will get you totally up to spead on how LPC modchips work and interact with the Xbox.
