Console Frag'ing After a Repaste and Dvd Rive Cleaning.

Recommended Posts

i pulled apart my 1.6, cleaned and repasted the the heat sinks, and cleaned and greased the dvd drive. i was cycling the dvd drive trying to get the tray to operate correctly when all of a sudden the system started having weird artifacting on the screen. i turned it off and un plugged it and then plugged it back in and it started frag'ing. what's going on?

Hello,

did you replace both cpu and gpu thermal paste ? If yes, did you think to warm gpu heatsink in order to remove it ? If yes, did you perfectly clean previous thermal adhesiv paste on the cpu ?

If you did everything perfectly, do you use a conductive thermal paste and you could have put too much paste that would have overrun on components ?

What is your board revision ? 1.0-1.1 (AT style PSU connector) 1.2-->1.5 ATX connector 1.6 ATX Connector with no ram extension and Xcalibur chipset ?

Did you remove the capacitor clock if this is a 1.0 to 1.5 version ?

Do you see some caps that seem to be bulged ?

Send a photo of the top and bottom of your motherboard.

bye

1.6 board. non-conductive thermal paste. haven't looked at caps since this happened.

I would be checking the caps next to the 20 pin power connector and heatsink and if they look anything like the circled ones replace all of them.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

      Quick question I am finding difficult to search online.
      Like most, I mainly play games directly from the hard drive, but do occasionally like to play my games on disc. I am wondering if there is an application out there that gives you the option of disabling the dvd drive on startup?
      I want to keep my dvd drive alive for as long as possible, and I cringe everytime I boot the Xbox and the laser searches for a disc that isn't there. It seems I am just degrading the lifetime of the drive that way. If I can disable the drive when I am not using it, I bet I would be able to squeeze more life out of it.
      Thanks!

      Hi, 

      New member here and will hopefully be a first time xbox owner soon 😛
      A friend is sending me a mod'd xbox to add to my collection, I have never owned or done any mods to one before so lots of learning on the horizon for me.
      This seemed a good place to come for info and help if required so here I am!

      My friend has done a bios mod to it, removed the clock cap which I understand are suicidal on these and replaced the Drive band so that saves me some work
       
      He has advised that I need to get a Hexen disc which I believe I can download from here somewhere and after that I guess there's not much to do until it gets here and I can start tinkering 😛

      One thing I would like to do and maybe you guys can point me in the right direction is change the main PSU.
      The reason being its a US console and I am in the UK, Obviously I can run it through a transformer to reduce it to 120v but I was thinking if I could find one it may be worthwhile swapping out the entire PSU for a 240v one.
      Is that possible?

      Anyways see you on the boards

      Hello all,
      Old friend just dug up his OG Xbox. It has an xecuter 2 mod chip. What would I need to do to use a 2TB SATA HDD besides the IDE to SATA adapter?
      Thanks in advance.
