Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Makes a sound like a computer loading the entire time....

Whenever I am playing, my 360 is constantly making a sound like when a computer is loading. I have also been getting some game freezes recently to the point that I have to turn the 360 off and restart it. I am wondering if there is a problem with my processor. Maybe someone can help me out because this just started maybe a week ago.

My Xbox 360 makes a loud humming noise while i play


The Xbox 360 does not like to be moved when playing a disk some of the mechanics may have misaligned or slightly out of sync this may be reason the DVD drive is making those sounds.

I strongly recommend you remove any visible dust from the 360 especially the sides and air vent holes using a vacuum cleaner. Once youve cleaned it place it horizontal (never on carpet) on a flat surface well ventilated away from other devices that generate a lot of heat.

As for the 'shredding sound', place in **** game into the 360 when it starts to make those sounds again gently tap the 360 on top (where the DVD drive is) until it stops making that sound. This doesnt always work but has for me and many others.

My experience tells me that dust can build up not only inside the 360 but also the drive itself which can lead disc read errors and the sounds and you mentioned.

Remember DUST and HEAT is the 360's biggest enemy and can cause RROD, 1 Red Light Problem, and disk errors.

Hope this helps..good luck!

Xbox makes a motor noise whenever theres a game in it


Hi, the optical lens assembly is misaligned for some reason. this assembly will need to be replaced asap.

It is best to replace the entire DVD drive in this case.

Xbox 360 makes revving sound when starting and loading


It's not likely to be the fans. The DVD drive makes a loud whirring noise. If you have the NXE dashboard you can install games to the hard drive so the DVD doesn't have to get up to speed, which means the Xbox will be quieter and you'll have faster loading times.

Bad sounds


Discs in video games rotate faster than movies in order to increase load times. As long as the system is functioning properly, I do not think it is anything to worry about.

Loud noises


Depending on the age of the system, replace or ignore.
Its your DVD drive, unfortunatly most drives are noisy -FACT- so sometimes you have to just live with it- check the back ,if manfactured in 2005 ( a lot of bad drives from this year) might be worth ringing microsoft to see if an exchange is possible.-
But if its not showing any loss of play/loading or scratching the discs - or showing error- please place disc in a xbox 360 console...You may just have to put up with it.
