Xbox keeps fraging

Post by xboxprince » Fri Jun 12, 2015 2:48 pm

So I set up my trusty board in my room, I hadn't done this before because of some heat issues and after like a week or so my Ac broke and it got kinda hot and humid in my room but i still kept using it because I didn't have another box to use. then Installed a digital output on it and it still worked but after like 4 days it just startded to randomly lock up whislt i was playing music or watching a movie. so I would rebbot and it would frag then i'd wait a bit and it would work then it would do the same thing. also somtimes it would just freeze and i'd reboot it and it would rebbot fine but still freeze and since its fraging I think its the chip. so idk what to do and now I'm sad :(

Specs:

Any idea what your CPU temps are?

I'd be setting the temp settings in XBMC to 55c and auto control with minimum fan speed at 5% just to be on the safe side. That same setting works fine here in Australia summer temps when the machine is in a closed in area like a bookshelf so I would say it to be fine where you are. However I am not sure whether Trusty moded machines actually have the chip temps connected in which case you would need to set the fan speed manually. If it is getting to the 72c that is causing it to lockup, you will be getting the error code red / orange but again, I don't know if that would even work on a Trusty machine. Either way I wouldn't be overheating that machine to many times.

Produce a debug log, might tell you - it's the Q:\xbmc.old.log you want, since you're rebooting it after lockup.

I'm starting to believe that there is nothing wrong with my box, I moved it for a brief period to the room closest to my router so I can get the debug log and I just didn't have any freezing problems. Idk if this makes sense but my xbox usually sits on top of my sub woofer maybe the shaking is causing it problems.

Sounds like what mine was doing a while back. my issue was the CPU came loose in its socket it needed to be reseated =/ and thats a scary task considering he likes smothering everything in hotglue.

Can you remove the digital output you installed and see if it still happens :?:

Sorry I took dumb long to reply, my pc got a bug and started working them 10 hour days, any way I think your right. I put it away for a bit due time the time constraints I had and decided to boot it up today and its condition has progressed. Now it freezes within in 3min of booting. I tapped it twice and each time it froze. at first I thought it was the chip and that there was a problem with the bios because I was getting the infamous christmas lights, then I thought maybe it is the cpu since the bios gives the cpu instructions and the xbox frezzes while im running programs or just listening to music.
