The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Did you call Microsoft for support?

Do you have it modded? Maybe some soldering fucked up and you cant read your chip bios, but then if you see a msg that means it read the msg from some device, hd or bios.

So is it modded?

The whole green -> red thing makes me think that a powersurge or something might have zapped the video memory, but the click click click sounds like maybe a busted DVD-ROM (or possibly hard drive). Which drive do you have?



The Phillips and Thompson drivers are notoriously unreliable. In fact I have a Thompson and it died some time ago, good thing I play all my games off the HD.

learning_byte is right to check for spashes of solder if you modded the box. Other than that I'd also make sure its fan is still working. Worst case you could probably sell it for parts on eBay, then take that money and get a new one for under $100.

I feel your pain man, without my Xbox I don't think I'd ever turn on the TV.

Peace,

-Y

I had that message when i switch 2 xbox's HDs, so It might be the HD itself, they are lock with a passwd, and the clicking is when the xbox is unable to read the BIOS. If its your BIOS you could just get it modded, and it ll work, but if your HD is fried its impossible to put a new hard drive.

yea to support large unlocked hard drives you need a modchip and a bios i have heard tales of people putting 160gb drives in there. if your xbox is broken it should show a page like this and have a support code. Check here for all your diy xbox repair needs.

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes.

U can put a chip, there are tons, the bios is the information inside the chip so you need to put a chip or flash the TSOP chip on your xbox'x motherboard with a new bios using a exploit that is around on the net. BTW you need the info of the hd, to upgrade a bigger HD, newer bioses can now be patched to add LBA48 support so +137gb drives are now possible to be installed on a xbox.

So if you are going to do it yourself, you have to have some basic knowledge in soldering and common sense, the mods for xbox are indeed a lot, and so many ways to do it. SO read man and if you think you can do it yourself do it, if not, check around for repair.

But if you think the way i do, you ll come up with an easier solution. I dont think is wrong since BIll gates is already fucking rich. Go the store buy a new xbox, change the inside of it with the old one you had. Go back to the store return it, there you go. You see your warranty is still working.

If you do that, be careful when you take the stickers out
use a blow drier in low heat, and try to get it out with out damaging it, if you cant or the sticker broke (they are on the holes the screws) get some sticker that looks alike like a bar code or the stocker forma computer part ; ). JUst be cool and smart when you do it.

Try opening it up and cleaning it. They build up an incredible amount of dust and mine started working again after cleaning.

If that doesn't work turn it on, throw it against a wall and punch the bottom of it untill the light turns green. (also worked)
