Have any of you had experience dealing with broken xboxes (not under warrenty)? Mine quit working, and I don't quite know why. I turn it on, and the fan and HDD start up, but it won't show the load screen or load the game/go to the main menu. If I hit the eject button, it sounds like it is trying to eject, but it either cant or won't. I opened it up, but couldn't find anything. I suspect the CD drive is broken because it won't eject, read, and when I manually open it and hit the eject button, it stutters while it's going in. Anyone know what's going on or what I can do to get it fixed? Neither the drive not the xbor or under warrenty as I opened them both.

Nevermind. It was a bad HDD/mobo (probably the HDD). I just had to get a new (actually used) xbox.
