Hi there. I have a RGH slim that started acting up and it's had a problem and I never had the time to figure out what the problem is, so I figured it would be best to start here!

Okay so it used to work fine but then suddenly it started freezing up and then then it sometimes wont even boot it will freeze up and checkerboard up. I am going to try to include pictures.


Any idea what the problem would be or if i would just need to get a new one

Thank you!! :smile:

I have tried that with or without hard drive, and also a usb, with still the same result, which makes me believe it’s something internal

Could be the GPU getting ready to take a crap. I had similar issues with one but I think it was from flexing the motherboard, which I believe loosened the CPU connection or something along those lines. Chances are it's a hardware issue though.

Thanks for the insight. Were you able to get the problem fixed, or did you have to get a new console?

It was one of the first few that I built myself. It still works today but I had to rig the crap out of it, in my case I lifted the front right corner of the motherboard ( where the front USB ports are) slightly using a soft adhesive pad which flexed it just right. My situation is probably different from yours but the checkerboard screen and freezing is a common issue with a bad GPU or bad connection from the GPU/CPU (slims have integrated chips) to the motherboard.

I would keep searching for other possibilities if I were you. Sending it out for someone else to fix it probably wouldn't make sense financially with the current market. A reball/reflow would cost probably around ~$60, if that is in fact the issue. You could probably replace the console for $100-$120 or less for just the console since you should already have power brick and everything.

I believe so because from time to time it will boot then it will just checkboard up and sometimes the screen will just go crazy
