    If it's a semi-brick, why does the screen goes black? A semi-brick is that you can't get in the system menu, am I right?

    yes if you don't see anything, not even the banner it is a full brick and you need to give it to N which will charge you... of course you ll remove the chip first

    Nintendo puts a new motherboard in the Wii I think, but for 30 you buy one yourself. Wich is better?

    Then I don't think it's possible to brick your Wii.

    It could be a faulty installation of the DriveKey chip (cables not connected or the chip not insulated correctly etc.). Have you tried to remove the DriveKey chip and test the Wii with an original game?

    Without re-installing the DriveKey chip, try checking the flat ribbon cable between the Wii drive and the Wii motherboard. Are you 100% sure it is connected correctly? Also, just to make sure the cable is not broken, try replacing this cable with the flat ribbo cable supplied with the DriveKey chip.

    Thumbs up

    Hey all, I had the exact same symptoms as Sven, except my drivekey install never worked. Turns out I shorted the connector on the motherboard side of the DVD drive cable. Reseated cable, and now all is well. ((Thanks CoNs for the great idea.))

    Now to see if the stupid drivekey works
