First of all Thanx for the responses. I got a homebrew chip installed with EvoX2.3 bios with the switch(Xbox/Evox). I bought mine premodded so I never opened an xbox before and don't have any soldering experience. Any other ways to fix this besides opening and soldering the loose ends?

Deffo sounds like a loose wire m8 - the red light means that a BIOS cannot be found - afraid the only solution is to open her up.

@Plexgod - If it was an LPC mod and the ground point was off then the xbox would still boot - but from the original onboard BIOS.
