Ok my xbox was fine last night and not its starting to act up. What should I do or look for to stop this from happening? Its use to just freeze up every now and then but now it just did it 4 times in a row?? Won't even boot to dash now?? Also when I hit the powerbutton it take like 30 sec. to turn off?? I haven't FTPed in a few days and it wasn't anything with the main dash or bios?? What could it be...please help Sad

Could be anything really..

When you turn on your xbox does the flubber screen (xbox startup movie) work perfectly??

If it is jittering then more then likely the HDD is cactus..

We need more info.. Does it give you a color around the power led?? (this is a error led code)..

I would love to hear that...but I can't even get it to load the disc....and you can hear the HDD working Crying or Very sad I didn't have anything I can't get back (backed up everything) I just don't want to wait or mess with the warr. on the HDD or messing with the company I got the HDD from. I am going to see a xbox and CPU guru and just give him my HDD. See if its blown or if he can just reformat it.

If you want man, just hook up with me over the weekend. I'll take a look at your machine and see what I can accomplish. Hopefully, nothing is too messed up and we can get it up and running right in no time.

I still have that disk for you anyway Wink

I have absolutely no plans for the weekend so I am wide open. I get off work Friday at 4pm, but Saturday and Sunday I am off. If you still have my number just give me a call. Make sure to leave your number this time if you get the machine (yes, the message from my little american idol daughter...lol).

Thank for the help....I have my HDD out now and am going to check if I can't just clean everything out and start over. maybe reflash the chip with new bios so I can have a G drive (the other fourm said this would cause this)
