    I have a modified Xbox (original one). Played it for years and had some games burned on it. Also had a CD that had every original nintendo game on it that would work on the Xbox. Recently I turned on the Xbox to let my son play and see the games we used to play as kids and it won't work anymore. I don't know what happened. Any ideas or suggestions?
    Thanks Sam
    Really appreciate any important or support.

    Probably a cold solder joint or maybe the chip came loose from the pinheader.

    I'll be totally honest with I don't know much about this... Tried reading up/watch videos and got confused. It used to work perfectly. I would turn it on and play games that were burned on it etc... Now it turns out and goes to the ms dashboard, once I click on it it continues to come back to the dashboard. Thoughts?

    Well you'd have to open the console to check out if the chip came loose or if the d0 wire came loose or is a cold solder joint.

    If it's a 1.0-1.5 it could be the leaking capacitor and is it turning on at all or is it fraging ( 2 reboots then green red blinking)?
    What Xecuter chip is it ? (Xecuter 1, 2, 2.6 or 3)

    Hey Darkgabbz,

    Thanks for replying... It's a xecuter2. Purchased it long time ago. It already had games burned on it that I would play all the time and also came with a CD that had every Nintendo, Sega, etc game on it that would allow you to play. I turn it on (has a switch on it that allows you switch into the regular Xbox form or the xecuter. I switch it into the xecuter form, turns on, takes me to Ms dashboard, setting, flash Bois, reboot, option screen... It used to also allow me to go to another screen option as in "lunch DVD, lunch game, etc.. (no longer does). I'm not really good at this tech stuff at all, just wanted to see if it's a easy fix so my son can enjoy this thing.. Any support would be appreciated.. Thanks

    That means the modded dashboard is broken.

    And are you sure that the Xecuter 2 bios is enabled?

    Can you take a video of it booting up in the xecutor mode?

    And if it is enabled burn a hexen cd and reinstall a modded dashboard.

    Went to the link you provided, burned it to a CD, then put in the Xbox and nothing happened... Didn't even give me the option of installing anything. I hope I didn't do anything wrong.

    Burn it to a DVD rather than a CD, most Xbox drives have trouble reading cd-r disks.
