    Well my xbox was wokring fine and tehn one day I go to turn it on and it powers up for a second then shuts off and it does this three times then totally shuts off. I took it apart and noticed on the power supply the two little blue things that are next to each other had exploded and white junk was stuck between them.

    You could replace the resistors if you are handy enough with the soldering iron, but this might just be a temporary fix for a crapy power supply. Replace it and get it over with.

    You will just have to replace the power supply.
    Find out what version xbox you have and buy a power supply appropriate for your version.
