I changed the x clamps with rubber washers and bolts put new thermal past and fixed the three red lights but now the center light turns green but i am not getting any signal to a monitor or tv.
It is suggested to use nylon washers, not rubber, in combination with steel washers, as well. Try using two nylon washers on each side of the motherboard, and two steel washers on each side of the nylon washers. So that it will look like this:
Of course, with the screw through all of those. And if you take the heatsinks off again, you'll have to redo the paste. Did you perhaps put too much paste on? Only a rice grain size is needed on each chip.
Are you using the correct M5 washers? Did you use Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste?
Did you allow the GPU to "bake? After you do the xclamp fix, it is good to position the fans onto just the CPU and let the xbox run so that the GPU overheats, and this "reflows" the solder. Let it do this for about 20 minutes, until the GPU heatsink is extremely hot.
I would recommend doing the above because it seems like you may have fixed it from overheating to the point that it red rings, but the root problem hasn't been fixed, and allowing the GPU to bake usually solves this.
