well i just was sittin hurr playin me some halo,,
suddenly, whoah!!! wtf!!!! loud fakkin weird sketchy noises,, and screen having weird like burned looking shit showing up,,, i was like uhhh,, kept playin for a sec,, then it kept doin it,, szo i rebooted,, and an error code came up,, OH NO!!!
well it was error code ol 21,, and i have never heard of this happening to anyone,,soo i let my box cool down
IGR'ed a min later,, cpu temps at 52,, mobo at like 48 i think,, this is C of course
and now,, nothing,, so far,,,,, i boosted the fan speed to 5x for the time being though,,,
just wondering what the general reason for an error code 21 is,,, and soem general feedback,,
after i fully turn xbox off and on,, everything is fine,, with chip on and off,, nothing wrong,, but this has been happening now for 2 days,, after i play halo for bout 4 hours,,,,,

ok,, i figured id have to go into more detail
after playing for a while,, the sound will go first,, it will first make a loud screeching noise,, like while i walk over a powerup,, or health pack,, ect... then sometimes the ambient music will go out,, then itll start getting louder and more frequent with the weird sounds,, and also at times i will hear the "double kill" when no one has gotten a double,, but its not in the normal sound,, its like a sped up version of it,,,
then sometimes ill see like a "burnt looking image" on the screen,, like itsin the foreground and the halo screen is in the background,, like its transparent,, it happeend tongiht and whenever i would 2x sniper zoom is would show up,, and just weird random things like that
this has only happened 2 times,, and both times I IGR'ed during the game,, and went to the Error code 21
i guess i should have quit out,, and seen what would have happened at the main title screen and what not,, which i will obviosly do next time,, as well as record it to show,,
at first i thought it was just the xbe,, maybe got fakked up somehow,, know knows,, but then the error code wouldnt be explained,, as i have yet to have any other problems with anything else,, emulators,, dashes,, ect
this particular box has been modded for about 4 mos with x2.3b 4981 bios,, i just installed the new UX release,, so i guess the only thing i have changed lately (other than random insignificant files) would be the new UX and the new Linksboks ,, thought this happened before i upgraded to the new Linksboks,,
anwyays,, any ideas thoughts,, whatever,,,,,......
im curious to know if im the only person to have this happen to them,, im wouldnt doubt it,,,, with my luck
but once again,, i have not yet had any problems with any other app, dash,, em,, bios,, disabled chip,, ect
