The above poster is correct. The problem occurs when the heatsink makes improper contact with the GPU or CPU. To resolve this issue I used 2 Nylon washers on each bolt topside on the motherboard.

Good luck :)

How do you fix error 0031 on xbox 360


This error is caused by a faulty/cracked RAM brick, however it can also be caused when the heatsink is shorting out a resistor or like a bad solder joint under the GPU. If your xbox still under warranty send it back to Microsoft, if not try the xclamp fix. You could also try to Loosen your screws and make sure the heatsink isnt shorting out a resistor.You could Replace the faulty RAM brick or Cold joint/Shortcircuit under the Southbridge and/or Replace dvd power cord. Short in the dvd drive cord or the cord is in backwards.

Error Code 0020


First, my xbox would have one red light and E 74. Then when I opened it up and booted it I got three red lights and 0020. I took out the motherboard, replaced the heatsink compound and did the x-clamp fix, but I couldn't get nylon washers in the right size so i just used no washers at all. Varying the tightness of various x-clamp bolts gave me 0020, 0003, 0002, 0001, or it would boot up to the black screen and I'd get E 74 again. Other times the xbox would almost immediately overheat. Most of the time I would get 0020, though. At that point, I gave up and I just tightened up the bolts replacing the x-clamp a certain way (nothing seemed special about it) and put the motherboard back in the case without testing it. I screwed everything back together, and since the heads of the bolts were thicker than they should have been, the motherboard didn't really sit flat in the metal cage. But i just screwed the motherboard back into the cage not to tight with the 9 small silver screws, which I would imagine put some stress on the mobo. Then I pu the rest of the case on and the 6 long screws, and once I had snapped everything back together I tried booting it up. To my great surprise it booted up fine! I played some halo 3 and it has booted up fine every time (3 times) since then
Many people have got this error You need to replace the xclamp and make sure there's extra pressure (less than half a turn) on the front right corner of the GPU. You can read more about xclamp replacement here.
