I have an xbox the first one black with x on top it has just started to come up on the screen in a box saying your xbox need service can you help thanks

In the top left or right corner there will a number, eg 07, which means its a hard drive error which means the xbox is more or less stuffed as each hard drive for the original xbox is specific to the main printed circuit board.
Theres another symtom that tech's call FRAG lights. Where the lights Flash Red And Green, hence the acronym FRAG, if you are getting this symptom, theres a chance your xbox has died.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Most of the times, the IDE cable is not properly connected when you see this error. Please reattach the ide cable. Not only to the harddisk drive but also to the dvd drive. Also try to reconnect the ide cable to the motherboard.
There are 6 star drive screws on the bottom of the Xbox. Four under the rubber pads and 2 more under the stickers. If you remove these, the top should come off. Make sure all of the cables are tight (unplug it first!).
If this doesn't work, there are ways to fix it, but it involves building a computer chip with parts from Radio Shack and soldering wires into the Xbox in order to get a 'code' that allows you to replace the hard drive. The good thing is that used Xboxes are getting pretty cheap, I've seen them as low as $50.
If you really want to try building the chip, start here:

What error number does it have on the screen? It should be a white number in one of the corners of the screen. If you find out what it is, then select add more details in this question and say what the error number is.
