Xbox Repairs Tim

Alright, I have two broken Xboxes, and it's starting to irritate me. The first one, completely out of nowhere, just wouldn't turn on at all. Naturally, I figured it was just a problem with the system's power supply, but a new one that I ordered online had no effect.

Then, in my infinite wisdom, I decided I would just buy another broken system and use it for repairs. I bought one with a blown power supply, thinking I could either replace the power supply and use it as my normal system, or grab other parts out of it to fix my original one. Yeah, well, that didn't really pan out. Replacing the power supply did nothing, so something else is broken, too. It seems that, whatever is wrong with my original one, the second system has the same problem. So much for using it for parts.

Anyway, I'm at a loss, but I suspect both systems have bad motherboards. I've already sunk almost $100 into the broken system, replacement powersupply, and shipping, and if I want to keep my original harddrive with all my saves on it, I'm going to need to mod whatever system I end up buying. Bah, it hardly seems worth it.
