Ok well where do I start.......I just finsished upgrading my ram to 128mb but I seem to be having some VERY strange issues that I can seem to find info on anywhere. I have a 1.4 with a flashed tsop(winbond) and I can get the xbox to boot into cromwell(been using the gentoox loader so I had flashing ability) with it showing 128mb but here is the kicker....if I flash any x2, ind, or any other hacked bios it does the turn off and on 3 times then just circles the colors on the button. The starnge thing is if I push eject after it stays running it will boot into the dashboard, play games, ect, ect but will only show 64mb.
I can flash back to cromwell and it will show 128mb again. I have looked over the chips SEVERAL times over and cannot find the first single joint. I have a magnifying glass that Ive looked through and even went as far as taking pictures of the ram and then zooming in really close to check.
Point is that I am at a complete loss on whats going on. I have been at this for almost a week now and nothing has changed at all. I have tryed to reflow the chips with plenty of flux over and over with about every other method I know of short of taking the ram chips back off. I would rather not take them off again seeing how long it took me to get it right(well partly right:P) and destroying 3 boxes learning how to do this.
Im ussualy pretty good at figuring out my own problems and seldom have to ask for help but this has me stumped. My wife is sick of me clamming up in my work space trying to fix the problem and I have allready spent more money than I should have on this. If anybody has any insight on the problem I am having please let me know because I am litterally about to go crazy over this, as you can see:P. Thanks for any help someone may have to give me.
ps: Yes I have all samsung ram on here that were taken from a 1.4 xbox. The ram chips do have a few numbers that dont match but from what I have read that is normal and as long as they are all smasung it should work.
