Re: Computer won't turn on at all. Dead Cpu/Motherboard?

Yeah, I was hoping to narrow it down to just one or the other if possible. They want to spend as little as possible on the repair and need it back ASAP.

Re: Computer won't turn on at all. Dead Cpu/Motherboard?

That's what I figured, but I wasn't sure so I tried it anyways. So technically the CPU could possibly still be bad? It would be much easier to fix if that is the case. No matter what I've tried...

Re: New Xbox Canít Give You a RRoD

You can OC a 360 if you have jtagged it and use a custom OS (popular in the modding community). You just can't ever take your 360 online again. And it's also illegal since jtagging supports playing...

Re: Keyboard and Mouse stand?
