    Hi, I've not played my DC in ages (february), so I got it out today and hooked it all up and went to play it. Then the problems started, after being turned on for a few while (im talking under a min) the console resets itself and loads the game up again. I've no idea what it could be. Curious to see what it was I opened up the console to see if I could see any loose connections inside or anything. This is where I noticed that the top was only held to the base by 1 screw, the others were all missing, and that the drive unit wasnt screwed to the main board (it was just resting on some rubber cushions), could this be a problem?. I brought the DC 2nd hand of ebay middle of last year and haven't had any trouble with it untill now :/ anyone have any ideas? :confused:
