Put the Xbox back together and see if it will let you get past the clock setup. If not; then actually replacing the capacitor may be required. As for the controller not working; that makes me think there is some acid damage to the logic board. Your Xbox should function as normal without the capacitor; aside from resting the clock when Power is lost. I would start with the c...
