Installed drivekey, worked perfect for a night, and then stopped
After about 5 hours of playing everything perfectly the night before, I played for about 5 minutes this morning and suddenly the screen went black. Now the wii fails to read any disc, including originals. Thoughts on problems?
I did not tape both sides of the drivekey (just used what was provided). Am I in danger of having shorted it?

Ok, update - i was all ready to disassemble my wii again to re-check the installation when I read about hitting eject 3 times to access the drivekey menu. so I plugged it back it and tried another disc again first, and everything is working again now. I can also access the drivekey menu fine.
What can I attribute the earlier problem to? I did not tape my modchip 'down' to anything. I simply covered it with the insulation sticker I received from modchipcentral and left it "loose". Could that potentially be the problem?

Thanks for posting this and updating it. I've ordered this chip and will certainly heed the advice given to tape my chip on both sides to hopefully avoid this issue.
