Try not to power it up until it has climatized to the room temperature that you have it set up in. If there is condensation inside due to the fact that it has been brought in from the cold into a warm environment, it could fry the insides if you try to switch it on too soon. Leave it for a good couple of days before trying again.

This should give you a dialogue asking whether or not you want to reset your system to factory default settings.

It wont update

if it wont update the easiest way to update it is to clear the cache then it will update every game and give you the system updates. GO TO MY XBOX > SYSTEM SETTINGS > MEMORY > Press Y on the HARD DRVE symbol and then press X,X,Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X. Once you do this a messsage will appear saying: Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices? press yes, then presto. when you turn the console you will update each game as you put it in the system, and get the newest system update.

Ok its raining and its cold but i wanna play my 360 but mine wont turn on everywhere at my house so i left it off and unplugged all night and i played four only 4 mins and it turned off what can it be

What colour is the light on your power brick when it will not turn on? if its red thats your problem, turn it off and let it cool, remove any dust and make sure its well ventilated, if the light still goes red, you need to try another power brick.

My xbox 360 and wireless controller will sync but then it wont show that they are connected and even though i turned on my console by using the button on the console it just shows the green light turn on...

To connect the controller to your Xbox 360 console, follow these steps:
  1. Press and hold the Xbox Guide button until the controller turns on. The Xbox Guide button is the round button with the green "X" near the center of the controller.
  2. Make sure that your Xbox 360 console2_bing.gif is turned on. If your Xbox 360 console is not turned on, press the power button. The power button is the large round button on your Xbox 360 console2_bing.gif.
  3. On the Xbox 360 console, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small round button on the Xbox 360 console.
  4. On the controller, press and release the Connect button. The Connect button is the small button on the front edge of the controller, between the left bumper button and the charging port.
  5. After the Ring2_bing.gif of Light spins and flashes one time on the controller and on the console, the controller is connected. The quadrant on the Ring of Light that remains lit indicates the position in which the controller is connected.

Xbox wont turn on

I don't recall what the bolt kit entails, but if you reseated the CPU or GPU its probably not set right, I would double over your work very carefully to be sure you didnt mess anything up. Also, check for cold solder joints on the board (if you had to repair anything).
