    did you move the little switch on the cable to the other setting by accident?

    Which way should it be?
    And another thing i've found recently when I turn my xbox off i can still hear it for like 10 seconds and just now i've realised 4 seconds before the noise goes the green Q light flashes as if it's downloading something.

    Depends if you have a HDTV or not, and the corresponding settings in the xbox control panel.

    ave you tried moving the cable again?
    are all the connections good?
    have you tried another cable?

    do you still have sound coming from the xbox, ie can you here the game start up, or the sound it makes when you move around on the dashboard?
    If you can then there may be an actual issue with the xbox itself, happened to one of mine, had to take it to a chap and get it fixed.

    I've tried disconnecting everything and connecting it back again and still the same and I guess the connections are good.
    I don't have another xbox cable.

    Nope can't hear anything. Glad it's not the xbox itself.

    Thanks for all this guys rep for all. I'll try connecting something else to the tv and then trying the xbox on another tv will let you know.

    UPDATE: Hooked it up to a pc monitor with a VGA cable and nothing so it's not the wire or the tv any other suggestions?

    Thought 1 red light comes up for that and if it was that won't be that worried because they've just extended the warranty for that :).

    Just comes up with flicker on the tv of white lines like a tuning.
    Also happens when I reset the default settings using Y+RT.

    Anyone??

    Does indeed sound like it's the video card gone pop, although as I said earlier, that would give you at least some sound out of it, in the form of the normal noises you haer on the dashboard, apart from that I cant help ya, I got someone down the road who fixes stuff, I tend to break most things I look at lol.

    Lol how much would you say it would cost to fix?
    Gonna ring microsoft and then try taking it to a shop down the road from me that fixes 360s.
    But I can't understand how that could happen just moved it up and down a bit and don't work anymore? I guess karma didn't want me playing left 4 dead lol.

    You have any luck with that shop and finding the problem?

    Mike..

    It broken dead video card. Happened to mine!
