This is a problem with the gpu (graphics chip) the console will need stripping down and new thermal paste applied or the motherboard needs re-balling. sorry but there is no real quick fix for this.
Hope this helps.

Not loading game


the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.

The drive motor is SERIOUSLY damaged. It will have to be replaced, but good luck finding parts. Call around to local service shops and see if any have parts units.

360 grinding noise and unplayable disc


Crack open the DVD case and see whats going on and try fixing it yourself. OR Buy a new drive off of eBay and transfer the firmware key over from the old drive too the new one.

Grinding noise when playing Premier Manager 2008


If your not getting the same problem with other games and you have cleaned the laser lens then it's going to be down to a faulty disk. The store you purchased the game from should replace it for you or you can have it replaced by Zoo Digital but this involves sending the disk to them and can be time consuming.
