The only way to replace the hard drive is using a mod chip. You will also need the "config magic 2" program. The hard drive is digitally "locked" to the motherboard using the serial number of the motherboard and hard drive. If you change the hard drive you will still get the same error. I do modifications including bigger hard drives. If you have any questions email me. My email address is

You actually don't need a modchip. You can do a softmod, but it'll take a bit of work, a new hard drive, and about $5 in parts from Radio Shack. Everything you need to know you can find here:

Xbox original red light


If you're talking about a "red ring" then the xbox is shot. It is caused from a little plate that overheats and breaks off. Call the company and tell them, I've heard of people getting brand new replacements.

My xbox has 3 flashing red lights on front. What does this mean


It means your system has the dreaded RROD Or Red Ring Of Death,

If you turn the system on and hold the sync button and then hit the eject button, You can find its code you will have to do it 4 times, 1 light means 1 2 lights means 2 3 Means 3 and 4 lights means 0.

You can usually get a code like 0020 0102 and so on, below is a link that will tell you what each error code means,

also look at the back of your system locate the manufacture date, If it's within 3 years of that date don't open the system call microsoft and have them fix it for free.

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.

Xbox Original flashing green and red


Hi there!

This is known as the Christmas lights or FRAG frequent red and green error.

Most of the time the screen is blank and if you were doing work recently such as modchipping this could be caused by solder splashes on the mobo or a shot MCPX chip. Removing the MCPX chip is impossible without very expensive equipment so if you can't find any solder splashes or you weren't soldering on the board junk the whole board.

However, since you said that your xbox is original, I would assume that you haven't done any modifications yet so chances are, the xbox can't find an AV cable connected to this unit. If you do have one, please check if your AV cable is damaged (a frayed or damaged wire). Replace your AV cables and your good to go.
Cheers!
