    1. What causes it?

    2. Is there a fix for it?
    2a. Is it a cheap fix?


    3. Is it usually hard-drive related?

    4. Why does the 'Sync Button Method' of clearing the 360's cache freeze the Xbox and then precede to not work?

    5. Would the Xenon motherboard have ANYTHING to do with it?

    6. Would swapping hard-drives help fix the situation if it seems to be related to that?

    Answering any of these questions properly would be greatly appreciated!

    And before anyone posts this "E71: possibly a dashboard update error, Check below in the "Console Reset Codes" for instructions. If that does not work there is no other solution and the console must be sent back to MS for repair." Yes I did try X,X,LB,RB,X,X and nothing.
    Thanks :thumbup:

    EDIT: The warranty is void because of a case swap so no I can't send it into MS :frown:

    Force RROD by wrapping your 360 in towels (especially around the vents) and leave it on for a few hours/over night and abracadabra you got teh RROD. :thumbup: I've never had to force RROD because all of my RRODs happened legit but from what i hear its like 95% effective so that's your best bet.

    Or you could always buy another 360, swap boards , re-attatch the warrenty sticker and send it in for repair and then you will have two working 360's.

    Forcing RROD is not as easy as you think it is. Or atleast it hasn't been for me.
