1) Disassemble Xbox 360 Case
Obtain your case separately. By a fine tip screwdriver, poke the grayed out holes and back of poke the small rectangle holes. Get the Faceplate Off and move the latch up on the DVD drive up as you remove it. Unscrew metal case which is under the plastic case.
Following is the image of video (How to disassemble xbox 360 case) which comes with James Dean's Professional Xbox 360 repair guide. If you are not comfortable with instruction you can use this video to disassemble your Xbox 360 case.

2) How To Remove Motherboard Safely
Unplug all cables connected to motherboard and associated small devices and take DVD drive out. After DVD, get the fan and motherboard out of the xbox 360 case. Make sure you do this gently.
Following is a quality video which can show how you can remove motherboard safely.
3) Crucial Motherboard Disassembles.
Turn the mother another side, using the screwdriver snoop off the X-clamp which you can find under heat sink. Check out following an image of a video which came with Xbox 360 repair guide which will make your process easy of "snoop off the X-clamp".
I will suggest you to do this step very gently if you are not comfortable doing this refer following video which comes with James Dean's 360 repair guide.
4) Heat Sink Unscrewing.
After snoop of X-clamp you have to unscrew heat sink to obtain CPU and GPU.I will advice you don't hurry to finish this work, please follow all steps else it will damage your xbox 360. If you are not confident do use Professional Xbox 360 repair guide.
5) GPU And CPU Cleaning.
Next step is to clean GPU (graphic processing unit) and CPU (central processing unit) If you do this step right it will help to stop xbox 360 freezing. This is very important and critical step so just make sure you do it right.
6) Appling Arctic Silver
Now you have to apply arctic silver thermal compound gently over GPU.
You will get this arctic silver thermal compound in any computer hardware shop for $1-$2.
Set it for 15 to 20 minutes then place 2 nylon washers on each screw on the heat sink then place the screws back in motherboard then add two more nylon washers to screws.
Place the heat sink on the peak of screws then push them down slight, finally screw them up. Try to make it reasonably tight.
Get everything back together and see everything is fitted properly. Now, Turn your Xbox 360 on.
I always like to educate people so I tried to describe a whole process in my words, Videos can make this whole process lot easier. I will suggest you to check out James Dean's Xbox 360 repair guide(Click Here To Visit) which will surely help you out to fix your XBOX 360.

The PS2 slim motherboard is pretty resilient, except when it comes to Lightning. if the PS2 slim will not Boot up and show the memory card or anything, the Emotion Engine processor on the motherboard is likely toasted.
If you want to fix it, you will need to get on Ebay, and find a Broken PS2 slim theat will not read disks. Be suire you know that the broken one will boot up before bidding. I say do this, becasue it will not be worth fixing if you buy a new Motherboard. As new PS2 slim motherboards cost around $75.
You can send the PS2 to the Playstation Clinic in South Carolina if your in the USA. I will diagnose it and fix it if I can without replacing a motherboard. The cost for this is $31 including Return shipping and a 90 day warranty. No charge if I find it needs a motherboard and you do not want to replace the motherboard. I run the website www.playstationclnic.com and we can replace a motherboard, but will not repair one. Too expensive to repair. Time is money. The charge for replacing a motherboard including return shipping is about $85 for new motherboard, or $65 for a used motherboard. . This includes a 90 day warranty as well.
