Xbox 360 DVD Drive Not Reading Games Only DVD,CD after replacing the dvd rom


If you replaced the DVD-ROM drive yourself, some newer Xboxes do not recognize and/or function properly with older drives. I tried replacing a drive in an older Xbox with an older yet DVD-ROM drive, and it would not work. When replacing a DVD-ROM in an Xbox, it is advisable to use the same model drive, as the Xbox does strange things when you introduce different hardware. The url of a page is below that details the different drives that Xboxes use. See if your new drive is the same as the old one, and if not, that is almost certainly the issue.

Bios rom checksum error.. system halted


This error comes when there is low cmos voltage so motherboard flash memory forgot the bios settings.
For that open cpu and then pull cmos cell from mother board buy new cmos cell and replaced it.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios and set time and date and boot option in bios then save settings.
Then it works again if it not works then you need to update firmware for your bios .
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hmmm.... mainly you have:
-20 or 24-pins connector, that is unique and goes directly to motherboard (powers motherboard and its components)
-4 or 8-pins connector that powers CPU
-the rest would be connectors for ROM (CD/DVD/BlueRay) and HDD devices (there are: molex and sata power conectors)

If you totaly unshure, there is manual:

Dvd rom


Hi,
I,ll assume this regarding the X-Box 360 ?
If you,ve replaced the Drive on a 360.
It will not work, due to the fact that the dvd rom drive, is paired to the motherboard. you can,t simply swap a faulty drive.
When the 360 boots, it,s looking for a Key On the dvd rom, before it will initialise it, and bootup.
I,d suggest looking on the net, regarding XBOX 360 drive flashing. if you still have your original drive, keep it. as your xbox won,t boot without it. you have to backup the drives key ( number ) And have it reflashed onto a replacement drive.
you could try a laser lens cleaner. Or possibly laser unit replacement.

Xbox 360 unable to play discs


if you get a disc read error, or it wont play games at all this means that your DVD rom is bad. there is a few solutions to this. You can either

A. Send it back to microsoft and they will fix it for free if you still have your warranty
a.1 If your sticker underneath the face plate is still there, then your good to go. Send it to MS and have em' fix it.
a.2 If your sticker isnt there, then you can buy replacement lenses off of ebay and change it yourself.
a.3 You could just buy a new DVD rom, but theres a lot involved including taking the xbox apart and connecting the SATA cable to your computer VIA 18-25" SATA cable / SATA card. You will also need to download key extracting software to extract the key. You will also need a USB flash drive and make a boot sequence for your xbox. After you do all of this, then you extract the key, copy the boot, flash the drive and reboot your xbox. if all works, then your new dvd drive will be mated with your motherboard. If it doesnt work, then your going to have to try to flash the motherboard again.


Hope this helps. A.3 is a lot of work, so I would recommend to just buy a new dvd lense for it and replace it. there are a lot of tutorials that show you how to replace the lenses as well.

Good Luck and sorry to hear about your xbox

The working of motherboard is the main component of computer. all the devices connected to the motheboard eg(Processor, ram, rom, hdd, cd, fdd etc) according to ur instructions the processor will take the information from the input and process the information and it will send the information to the output unit. Every device has unique i/o address and irq. the cpu knows it from which device the information is in and what to do and where to send it to? The processor is the brain of the computer and it will take all the action
