Edgar Uribe, how did you reflow your board? Did you use a heat gun?

I've recently done a RROD with my brother. You may consider re-applying heat and perhaps for longer and if possible hotter. Our first attempt using a hair-dryer (apparently not powerful enough) failed so we ended up dis-assembling and placing it in our oven set at 450 (NOT RECOMMENDED DUE TO RISK OF DAMAGING OTHER PARTS!), then the fix worked. We got lucky with the oven thing not damaging other stuff. I say try re-applying heat and let us know what you find!

Hey oldturkey03, Yes i used a heat gun. I used it in low setting (750 F) for heating up the back on the xbox for one minute. Then I used the high setting (1000 F) to heat up the CPU, GPU, RAM and the other two chips that needed to be reflowed. I made sure to put foil over the capacitors and all other areas that did not need to be reflown. I did everything precisely as stated in the guide, but still did not work.
