Vibration when little pressure applied to case as disc runs.


Recommended Posts

If even the slightest bit of pressure is placed on the case directly above the disc drive as it’s running, there’s a metallic “vibrating” noise.

I actually had to loosen the screws on the case to stop it doing it all the time after reassembling it. I thought perhaps I’d tightened the two halves of the shell together too much.

Also, is the read/boot time “normal” between inserting a disc and the black Xbox splash screen showing?

      Hey guys, 
      Wondering if someone might be able to help me with this.  Recently installed OpenXenium on my 1.6 with LPC board (pics attached).  Xbox turning on just fine but getting a black screen when video cables connected.  Tried both component and standard composite.  The Xbox led is green as per usual.  The chip led itself actually flashes so I know its getting power BUT after it flashes a few colors the chip LED turns off and I'm left with a black screen on the tv.   
      When i remove my video cables from the xbox  and only have the power plugged into the Xbox the chip LED stays on, flashing every few seconds between red and yellow.  
      Xbox boots fine to dash with chip unplugged.
      The machine is soft modded.  Could that be causing an issue getting to the Xenium OS screen?   
      Losing hope on this. Thoughts?

      I'm getting horrible lag spikes that makes the system unplayable.
      I bought Mechwarrior. It plays fine off the disc. Zero problems. When I load it onto the HDD it is unplayable. It's the same with any game I load onto the HDD.
      Here is an example of the booting sequence into Mechwarrior, both with and without lag.
      Lagging boot: https://streamable.com/yohvt8
      Normal boot: https://streamable.com/71a6ne
      The lag goes on throughout the game, particularly when heavy combat is involved. Halo is even worse. You can see from just the boot logo that the FPS is like 10. Why does this happen?
      I even noticed that when shutting the system completely off and powering it back on, the green xbox animation will lag at times. Watch the very end where it begins to stutter. Sometimes, however, it doesn't stutter at all.
      Lagging: https://streamable.com/vdoktf
      Normal: https://streamable.com/5220rt
      I read that the green Xbox animation at the very beginning is algorithmically driven (not off HDD or ROM), so if it is lagging what does that say about the xbox? Is it a cpu/gpu thing?
      After spending a few hundred $ getting this system up and running I couldn't be any more disappointed.

      24" 40-pin 80-Wire Ribbon Cable: https://www.ebay.com/itm/274553744014
      Things I've tried:
      New 40 pin cable
      New HDD
      New SATA/IDE Adapter
      Putting old IDE HDD back in via 40 pin able (works with much less lag, but still noticeable)
      I'm at a loss and any/all help would be most welcome.
      Thank you,
