    I have a problem with my wii and i was wondering if any of you can help me
    When I turn the Wii on, after I press A on the health/safety screen,
    the Wii freezes. I tried waiting for 20 min. and nothing happend, upluged/pluged
    countless times, tried maintenance mode but couldn't get to the menu screen.
    So do you have the solution for this problem.

    Your Wii is bricked. What did you do before you last turned it off?

    What?
    You have to buy a mod chip.
    I don't see how you could have obtained one overnight.

    You have to buy a modchip, download a version of Zelda and patch it to autoboot, and then pray that you still have the Twilight Hack save still on your Wii. There's an application you have to run to remove wads, in this case the wad that bricked your Wii.

    Did you create the WAD yourself? If not, what was it?

    @atomiccow:
    How do you know that he doesn't already have a drive chip?

    It looks like your screwed bro, I would either call Nintendo and tell them "One day it just stopped working, It just comes up with a black screen when I turn it on."

    Or buy a refurbished drive from:
    http://www.modchipcentral.com/store/Replac...Drive-p-86.html

    ^^^^^
    I got my modchip from there. Its a great site.

    Doesn't it still stay, like they say to use a wad uninstaller for stuff like that. But that would be useful to bricked Wii consoles since it might unbrick it in an emergency.

    what's wrong is that the screen freezes instantly i press the a button on my wii mote
    but the light on the wii mote still stays on when the screen freezes and i can hear that
    the disc is spinning in the drive when the screen freezes

    I would say try disconnecting the mod chip to start with and see if you get any further (I'd also update the chip to Yaosm to avoid the 001 error, but I digress).

    If the chip is trying to write to the drive while the borked Wii is trying to start then you might be in the odd situation where you've got a deadlock and both are trying to access the same resource at the same time.

    A. Do you have Twilight Hack on your wii?
    B. Maybe you should try Wad Manager autoboot iso (unless you're on 3.3)
