This was originally part of another question. Blindsight says it requires line of effect to see something, but if I wear a Ring of X-ray Vision does it allow my blindsight to see through walls within 20 feet?

No. Blindsight requires Line of Effect, the Ring of X-ray vision grants only Line of Sight. The two special senses do not have a specific, defined interaction, and the X-ray vision doesn't remove the interposing barrier.
"Some creatures have blindsight, the extraordinary ability to use a nonvisual sense (or a combination of such senses) to operate effectively without vision." (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/specialAbilities.htm)
So the answer is no, because Blindsight has nothing to do with vision.
