Ok here goes. I installed my friends chip matrix about a week ago all went smooth. When i finnaly get my chip in the mail i cant get anything to work. i try my chip in his and works and i take his chip which was working on his xbox and cant get it to work on mine. I am following all the steps correctly. flashing, getting green light alignment etc. I get a green light in mode 1 and the xbox boots up in mode 2 but wont play any backups at all. from DVD-R to CD-R. I have tryed different bios etc but am running out of idea. This is a reburbished 1.0 xbox that i got from Eb after trading in my psx2. any ideas? thanks

have you tried a color bios to make sure that it's firing up right on your refurb box? also, it's possible that the dvd drive just doesn't like the media you are throwing at it..

Try a colourmod BIOS and ensure it is either version 2.6 or D.6 for the 1.0.
It sounds as if even though the alignment light is on the d0 contact is not being made.
Check the d0 point with a magnifying glass, you may find that it has lacquer or something covering it.
