sounds like you've got a solder bridge. re-check your install using a multi meter and recheck your solder points. If you can't find anything remove the chip and check that the console works properly without it.
Before you do any of that check the controller port ribbon is attatched to the mobo properly as it only has to be out a fraction to cause problems.

For all your U.k pre mod and fitting needs.

i checked the ribbon controller port and it was fine.. so i decided to take out the mod chip.. and after i tried turning on the ps2 and it worked fine without the modchip but the weird thing was, the day after.. i turned my ps2 on again.. and there was no screen, not sound, no nothing.. only a green light and this is after taking out the mod chip. So i'm have no idea whats wrong with my ps2 now..

btw.. will a little electrostatic shock ruin the whole mobo? or is the mobo static protected?

thanks again

IF you static shocked any of the ps2, there could be a problem for sure. Thats not good for electronics. I would look again at bridge connections as was mentioned above. Good Luck,
