So I live in south america atm and the electric currency here is stronger than in the us. So we use an adapter for american things.

Well, my mom accidentally plugged it in thinking it was her laptops charger and it blew up, gf xbox 360 slim it lasted from august 2010- april 2011.

I know we all make mistakes but she denies being the one that plugged it in and refuses to pay for the damage. (even thought im 100% sure it was her) /rant

edit 1: I removed "what a *****" (I was pissed when I wrote it)

edit 2: Hopefully it's just the power supply and I can get it fixed or buy a new one for $50 I think

So you come in here and call your mom a bitch because you're too stupid to keep track of your stuff?

You're so cool. I wanna be just like you.

In the first place, why is she in my room touching my things?

My xbox plug is attached to the adapter so I don't know why she removed it

Im pissed that she can't admit to doing it

Still yea that does suck but, it's partly your fault though

Your mother obviously isn't the brightest in the box.

How hard is it to look at the adapter, go "that's not what my laptop charger looks like", put it down, and continue looking for it elsewhere?

But, I feel your pain. Sucks to lose a console to such a stupid reason.

Hope you get it resolved and get a replacement soon.

What's the deal with idiotic people who come in here and make fun of him, such as poster #2. Clearly, he didn't call anyone a bitch, didn't smack talk his mom, and had his Xbox blow up over an stupid accident. If he truly didn't do it himself, which is pretty obvious, then it had to be his mom or someone else, which that party denies doing anything. So instead of punching his wall or his mom he comes to the forum to give us an interesting story, in a mature and rational manner and you guys (poster #2) attack him, even though all of his stuff was in his room and not just lying around his house? What the hell is wrong with you. Also, since I just saw the edits, if you really did say bitch and you edited that out, fix your shit man. Everyone makes mistakes, but don't go around cursing out your mom.

On a side note, wow that sucks. Hopes you can get up and running soon.

I am wondering if there has been a post edit that we have missed.

OP, I understand the frustration when parents fuck up, and then simply refuse to listen to reason.

So what exactly isn't working now? It may just be the power supply that was affected. Try to get access to another 360 where you can attach your HDD to -- all your game data/saves are still probably on there.

Connect the console to another power supply.

You just seem angry that you can't play right now. Give it a week and you'll feel better. :) Go outside, Read more. Watch TV.

If the Xbox is new why you donīt use youre guarentee???

Simply say to MS that the Box stop to work and done...simply say nothing about the damage itself...

Thats not complicated after all....

That reminds me of my brother tripping over the Gamecube and unplugging everything.

I was young, and didn't quite understand how it really worked. As soon as that happened, I got mad and quit playing Star Fox since I didn't want to start over.

Little did I know, I started it up years later and everything was saved. But I didn't finish it. Didn't care anymore.

You probably tried playing it again, and got nowhere. I was lucky, but it really sucks that happened.

I was devastated when that happened, but seeing as how it's an Xbox 360 in your case, I can't even imagine what you're feeling.

Bought it yourself? It means more. I bought mine, so if someone broke it, someone is going to pay for a new one. Seriously.

Give it time, and you'll find a solution soon. She'll probably confess and help pay for it. At least hope for that, instead of nothing.

Damn Dude that Sucks I Agree Why was she in you'r Room to plug in a Laptop Cord and Why couldn't she Follow the Cord and Realize that theres a Major Difference to the two, I Thought My Mom can't tell What Cord is What (my 360 is in the Living room) But She Still Asks If its the Right Cord even when I'm out! Take Revenge and Plug Her Laptop in and Fry her cord then Plead Innocent! xD The Cords are Really Expensive these days so I See your Dilemma

Or they understand all too well. A strategic "Oops" to get a kid to do their chores or homework?

My Atari burned out under similar circumstances when I was a kid, then oddly enough my grades improved.

Lima, Peru

I once applied at burger king and starbucks but I was over qualified because they said they give priority to people with lower resources.

This is because the government wants the upper middle and higher society families to pay for college as soon as they finish school without the kid having to work. (I know, it's bull)

I'm hearing that, and I feel your pain. I've only JUST reached a point where it's not a total tragedy if something happens to my console (or even having the funds to actually afford a moden console, in the first place), and I recently completed Uni...

We don't all have rich parents, and the jobs we have when we're younger don't pay near enough to afford a console without saving for a year or so. You might be lucky and find it's only the power adapter that blew (I had that happen when I stupidly plugged in US Gamecube adapter with a cheap power converter here in Aus...). Get a buddy's Xbox360 adapter, plug her in and see if she works. Other than that, it just sucks. Good luck!

Yes there's no reason to call his/her mum a bitch but still.

On topic: Yeah that sucks :T this is why everything of mine is boxed up after I use it. Not kidding. Mostly because I can't afford to replace anything that breaks.
Do what I do, hold it over her, go break something then deny it forever :V

That sux but im glad you edited your calling her out of her name. Unless she abused you, pimped you out as a child, beat you uncontrollably, or did any horrendous act throughout your childhood, theres no need to call her names. Like someone else said one day you will look back on it and laugh.

So did it kill your mom's laptop too? Man I would have been in deep shit if something that I left out toasted my mom's laptop, even if it was in my own room.

Its NOT his room!! Technically its his grandparents. Until you pay rent its not yours and you have no legal rights in regards to its use etc. Its the old, get out my room kid rant.

Try using a different PSU before you buy a new one. & here is the kicker!! HAVE YOU TRIED CHANGING THE FUSE IN THE PLUG!! Its rigged to blow BEFORE the PSU or xbox. Its really simple to do and should always be the first thing you check! IF not, then why??

Sucks for you bro. I keep my Xbox and TV as far as away from any traffic in the house as humanly possible for such reasons. Hell, I don't even let my cat in the room in case he decides to hop up where my TV sits and decides to scratch his ass and take it out.

I probably value my Xbox more than I should but reality sucks so I need it to forget how weak the day to day rat race is.

I'm 18 and finding a job, finding jobs are hard out there and I let my mom know and anybody don't touch my expensive stuff not unless they know what they're doing. Only thing she touches in my room is the computer.

When I was visiting overseas, we had to get a transformer to be able to play the playstation.

So as soon as we got one, we watched our dad plug it in and boom! The gray smoke coming out of the system and boy it does stink..

Did we get mad? No..We just laughed at Dad and told him looks like we are getting new playstation!!! :P
