Ok, I'm modding my 1.0 xbox with a xbit 1.5 chip. Obviously the lpc holes are filled, so I went to get a desoldering iron from radioshack. I got out about 5 of them, the others are only partially removed. When I say partially removed, I mean that I only got the top layer of solder. My desoldering iron's tip isnt small enough to get down in the middle of the hole. I took the motherboard out, and tried the other side but I ended up almost melting the board itself.
I've tried everything, including red-hot sewing needles, safety pins, and even hammering the solder through the other side. Is it possible to still use the chip over the solder? When I tried it before any of the solder was removed I only got a red/green light and a mocking squeek. I have a bios loaded, so that's not the problem.
I just put everything back together and tried it, i got nothing but the ged/green light. There is no picture or error message, just a blank screen. I even took the mod chip out and made sure all the xbox connections were right, and it's still beeping. I'm not sure if I messed up my motherboard or something but it might be screwed.
So, any suggestions? Please?
