So, I got a christmas present, an xbox. After a few hours of playing, I just had to open it, and see what can be done with it. Got interested in modding, and found this wonderful place, xbox-scene. I got my box modded with ndure+unleashx, and everything was fine, until it stopped working, giving error 7. It worked with the original disk, and I was really confused (as I was FINALLY putting the case back together). Eventually I tracked down the problem to the hdd-power cable, it gives just ~10,4V on the 12V line, and 4,something on the 5V line. After I replaced the power into the hdd with power from an external hdd enclosure, everything worked like a charm again!
But now the problem is that I can't put the lid on the box anymore, it is just a tangle of cables on the floor, and doesn't look too nice (and with children in the house, it is not too safe either). Ugly projects suck. Is this something someone else has encountered, and most importantly, can it be repaired? I have a good soldering iron and some soldering skills, so if it can be repaired, I think I can do it. The problem is I have almost no skills in figuring out what might be broken. I'd like to avoid to replace the PSU, as it is an old box, and investing in it doesn't thrill, so ideas are accepted with gratitude.
