    Well I wouldn't throw your box out just yet-seems like you make have burned one of your traces on the motherboard-if your not an experinced solderer then check out this site-they can repair your box.-http://www.llamma.com/

    Llamma has some of the best customer service out there. They will actually trade you a working Xbox for a non-working Xbox for like $100, at least that way you can save $50. While you're at it, have them install the mod chip for another $49. They will flash it with Linux Cromwell and you're off for network flashing. I've done buisiness with them a lot and all of their products are top notch, so don't worry about not getting a good Xbox in return.

    The going rate on ebay right now is around $70 plus shipping for a working xbox motherboard with matching hdd combo. Pick the seller with good rating reputation and you will be fine. eBay sellers are usually very careful to avoid getting negative feedbacks. Stay away from seller with low number in ratings to avoid hit-and-run sellers.

    I dunno' man, I've gotten screwed on ebay a lot with Xbox stuff. Plus the only reason everyone gets good feedback there is because if you give bad feedback, you're gonna' get bad feedback. If you get bad feedback you hafta' pay $20 just to have a hope that you'll get it taken off. Llamma sells a Motherboard and matching Hard drive for $70 and you know it's from a reputable place.

    With a modchip, no, don't need a matching hdd. But, on ebay, no one can sell a motherboard without a matching hdd and claim that it is in working condition. Without a matching hdd, the motherboard only boots to error screen, so it's technically in a non-working condition.

    He could contact Llamma and they would most likely sell him just a motherboard. I dunno' what kind of discount that would leave him at but they run through so many Xboxs they probably have just a motherboard laying around that works.
