Sounds like a wire hitting one of the fans inside. It could also be the hard drive if you have one. Try to change the way the console is standing and see if the sound gets worse or better to try and narrow down the issue.

Xbox turning on


When the xbox 360 is plugged into a power outlet, power is at the "entrance" of the console is stopped or held. When there is an internal hardware issue, some of the power leaks into the console, turning it on. If you want to fix the issue, I would suggest calling microsoft for repair. (only if you are under warranty) Otherwise, find a better repair company.

The grinding noise is natural, it is the console's way of turning on.

That normally means that the disk is gettgin scratched is your xbox laying down or standing up? If its standing up and is bunped slightly the disk can shift and get scratched. Check your games for scratch rings around them.

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.
