Hard drive to x-box problem

My x-box freezes on the main x-box logo, and doesnt go any further than that, ie to the dash board, unless I remove the hard drive from the main x-box itself, on which it does move on from the logo to the dash board. I have unplugged everything from it left it for a few minutes, plugged evrything back in to no avail, any ideas?

Xbox is offering a three year extension on warranty. i hope you did not open it. if you did, you are going to have to pay about $150 to fix it. send it in and replace it. that is your best deal. they are going to come out with a fan in the near future to solve this, but you should not have to put in more money.

How to remove canon Image runner c5870u Hard Drive ? Where is it located? It is not the same as 5000


Hello Zak
The hard drive for the 5000 is located at the rear of the machine in the upper left controller box as you know. The 5870's hard drive is to the right, just below the "main board". Remove the back cover. To your upper right you will see the enclosure that houses the main board. Directly below it is a box with a cover on it. That's the controller box. Remove this cover and the hard drive will right at yours eyes. You have indicated that you are familliar with the 5000 series, which means you know how to proceed now that you have located the HDD. Have a great one !

A few months ago my acer aspire 5100, all 3 usb ports stopped working. Now my computer does not even start. I have tried switching it on... somtimes the speaker makes scratchy noises otherwise no such...


It does sound like a complete motherboard failure, do you have a recovery disc for the laptop? remove the hard drive and leave it out, remove one stick of ram, remove the main battery, and remove the wireless card. Now fire up the computer to see if the acer logo comes up and then it should go to blank screen with the cursor blinking, if it works to this point, turn off computer. Now install the hard drive and load the recovery disc, make sure the boot sequence is set to start the dvd driver first, if everything works and you have full control we are starting to get somewhere, if it fails, this is where I would change the hard drive and see if that makes the difference, if it does, replace the ram and wireless card back into position, and last the main battery. If all this fails it leaves the motherboard as the problem. one thing I forgot to mention swap out the ram if windows freezes.

Freezing up


Remove the Hard drive from the unit and try to play a game without it. if it continues to freeze, this will confirm a major issue that concerns the internal connections to the main board and hard drive bay. This will need to be repaired by Microsoft.

If the removal of the hard drive produces positive results, just replace the old hard drive with a new.

Magellan roadmate 700 gps not working


Jossie, The cable that connects your hard drive to your main board could be loose. If it's not loose, then it's your hard drive. The only thing you can do (if it's not the cable) is send it in for a new hard drive. Unsure what the costs will be but the magellan logo screen is produced from memory on the main board while anything after that is when the hard drive takes over. -Daniel
