Opening the Xbox ended any remaining warranties - if there were any to begin with....

About all you can do is open up the box and try a very careful "do over".

Inspect everything and test as much as you safely can before closing up the box again.

Identify the exact source location of the sound and light.

Look for anything that may be getting caught, stuck, jammed; any physical failing.

Any signs of a broken circuit board connector, brown or black streaks, something bent, twisted, smashed. disconnected or incorrectly connected.

"Do over" means start over from the beginning and do everything once more. Just go slow and careful. Ensure that you test/try any thing that you can as each step is completed.

And an afterthought - what thermal paste did you use?

thermal is arctic mx4
i did a do over like 3 times already. didnt found anything

the light is from the led that indicate the xbox is on when i press. the sound is from the little speaker.
i really have no idea anymore for what to do
microsoft repair is over a 100$
tested a friend power brick to see if the power brick was problem. but it wasnt

Was that power brick the same as Xbox's power brick (voltage, amps, polarity)?

If identical try your power brick on his Xbox. Determine if his box works - if not then your power brick may be the problem.

It all happened after I replaced my thermal paste and pads. I used thermal grizzy 1.5mm and arcticmx-4 thermal paste. Thanks eveyone for their help!
