I turn it on and it has the start up but once it gets to the xbox logo it stalls for about 15 sec and then go's to saying it needs to be seviced and I have the #07 and I dont know much on fixing stuff and I need help
7 - kernel - HDD timeout
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.
Press pretty hard so it goes all the way in. Make sure it is seated straight and proper in the drives and the motherboard. If you still have an error 7. Try another ide cable. If that won't work try another harddisk. If there is still no go, try to set the jumpers on the rearside of the harddisk drive. Set it to master or cable select.
If that doesn't work, it probably means your hard drive is shot. There are ways to replace it, you can learn how to do it here:
It will involve opening your Xbox, building a small device out of about $5 in parts from Radio Shack, using that device to read your eeprom.bin file, and then finally using a program called XboxHDM to create a new hard drive (a WD Caviar works well).
But you can find a used Xbox for around $50, if all that seems like too much trouble.
