good thing you loose the caps....
well use config magic final to restore a good eeprom then you are good to go.... i had the same probelm on one of my xbox and i didn't know eeprom was the problem...but as soon as i reprogramed the eeprom this problem went away....btw...try amped (it should boot even with a bad eeprom because it does not check eeprom for info about the xbox)

fluidmax if your or someone else i tried loading amped because you said on the forum that amped does check eeprom only thing when i load it of the msdash it still says like all games the xbox wont let me play it due to the parental control setting....only thing is still cant change parental control setting due to the fact i havent got parental control tab om the msdash im f_cked people any help on this two month long task!!!!!
Jan 31 2004, 05:22 PM
parental control is in setting...go take a look..should be inside setting.
When the screen pops up that says Enter Pass Code press: X, Y, Left Trigger, X
master code to over write ....good luck
btw...parental control password is also stored in eeprom i believe...

i hope when you first moded your xbox you had saved a copy of your eeprom somewhere... otherwise you will have to ask a friend to share his eeprom.
load config magic final on a good xbox that has a good eeprom....then click backup eeprom in config magic final...now get that file to your xbox HD and follow the steps in here to restore your eepromhttp://www.xbox-scene.com/articles/configmagic.php
btw...i think all xbox has parental control in the original MS dashboard...are you sure you didn't see it in the original dash under setting?....scroll down alittle it should be after "Auto sign in"
