    Hope the title has offended anyone :twisted:

    My download machine crashed for no reason, just when i was watching a film on my x-box aswell... dammit!

    Got my lazy arse upstairs and restarted the machine... it wouldn't pick up the hdd (no primary devices found) :blink

    now i just opened the case and lookedat the insides and everything looked fine. plugged it into the mains, and what ya know, the b@st@rd is working!

    its either my magic touch, or my constant cursing on the wonderful machines!

    Does anyone else have these strange problems that magically disappear, and of course have a theory behind why this happens?

    Yeah all the time, i had a problem the other day where i rebooted my machine, and it said that the GRUB loader failed, i havent got linux, and there were no discs in the drive, boot order was correct etc. I reset my BIOS to default and it worked again. Still got me puzzled now :hhhmmm

    Hmmm odd you should mention Xbox, just looking online to buy Xbox or Xbox 360 not sure which one to get?

    What's the graphics like on Xbox compared to PS2?

    You dont really wanna ask me! Why???? PS2 is used for a DVD player, and XBOX is used for a media player... only had 3 games for the PS2 and gave them away!

    so please dont ask...

    Thanks Cheek, but before we I go down that road. I was just wondring if the 360 will replace the original xbox.

    Actually whilst your online, just a quick question about ISA bus
    on the AT board what was the maximum bus speed??

    Yes the XBOX 360 is the next generation XBOX so it does replace the original XBOX.

    You should really be comparing the graphics of XBOX 360 to the upcoming PS3 and the Wii.
