    i remember something like this happened to my friend, he used a "Slayer disk" i think, anyway, you should research "Fix xbox slayer disk", something like that. Hope it helped...

    well like the xbox wont even boot up no flubber screen no nothing. i wanna know if theres something wrong with the modchip.and if i put in the slayers disk wil it boot that before the flashing green

    bump

    i think it actually might be the chip because it wont even stay on unless the chip is not plugged in

    I don't mean to insult your intelligence but is it plugged in right? I thought mine was broke also it came on for a brief second and then turned off. So I called up the guy told me to take the plug out of the box plug it back in again and it worked.

    and or also there could be a switch. switch between bans, or bank or something. I bought and xbox from an old member here and it had the same problem. but I also got an error. I opened the xbox and the chip was on plugged from the circuit board.

    re

    so yeh, im 99% sure its all pugged in right.
    also, when the chip is in and i plug it in only the blue light next to the switch on the modchip,and i have no control with turning it on. also when the front panel bank switch plug isnt plugged in the chip the xbox frags.

    You need for sure to keep the chip plugged in and I think on bank 1. Atleast that's what mine used to be. just make sure the chip is all the way in and the arrow on the top of the chip is facing the edge of the xbox not the center.

    Well, from a diagnostic standpoint, the answer is simple.

    Remove the modchip (if possible) and see if the problem keeps happening. Then you can determine if it is actually the chip or the Xbox.

    Edit:

    And that Edit button is there for a reason...I know you want help, but double-posting is usually considered socially uncouth. :wink:
