    My brother sent me this by email...

    I was playing it last night and I had just completed GTAIV (well the main story bit) and I turned it off. Then I later went to turn it on but....nothing. The monitor doesn't pick up any signal from the console anymore (though I know for sure the monitor works and the scart connector seems to work fine) The ring on the xbox hasn't come on- it's not the 'Red Ring of Death' in fact there are no rings at all. Just the power light comes on. I think (through some research on-line) that the VGA component in the console has melted (I may be a little hypochondriac but I could swear I smelt some vague burn smell last night while I was playing)

    Anyone heard of something like this before?

    Poorly made hardware meet irishgrizzle, the 360 is a mess quality wise nothing surprises me anymore about how they fail.

    VGA component in the machine huh.....damn. Have you tried any other connection?

    If I was you I would call it in to MS and tell them it red ringed....they will send you a new one. They don't check them when you bring it in.



    Bless
