Black Screen White Dots -> Working Sound
My friend recently gave me his refurbished Xbox 360. We tested it out to see what was wrong with it and here is what we found:
- No RRODs
- Sound works
- Turning it on displays a black screen with white dots running across diagonally.
I googled around and this appears to be (correct me if I am wrong) a GPU problem leading up to the dreaded RROD.
I plan to take apart the Xbox and deal with the problem. I've received recommendation to do many things and I wanted to consult iFixit before I purchase anything.
Do I need to resolder the GPU connectors? Buy a new heatsink? Reapply thermal paste? Clean the fans?
Help would be greatly appreciated!
Is this a good question?
