Re: xbox 360

Hey shadraq,

Try this. This happened to a friend of mine too.

Remove the hard drive from the console, and turn it on.

If it comes on without the hard drive, then it may be an issue with the hard drive

If it STILL doesn't come on, then it look slike you may have more issues then you can see, and may have to contact microsoft. I know it sucks, but it looks like the only options.

My 360 will not turn on. The power light on the adaptor is red. It stopped and came back a week ago but the power adaptor was making a weird whirring noise. Is it the Console or the power adaptor?

If the power adapter for your Xbox 360 is red and your console does not turn on, you may want to follow this guide.

Xbox 360s makes a weird sound when it reads a disc and shuts down

Sounds like the drive is very dirty, or going out. Try cleaning it, or just replace it.

The power supply makes a weird noise (like the ventilator gets stucked) and the light of it in the back is orange.

If the light in the back is orange that means it is not on, i would go to and go to the support page for help.

Xbox WONT read call of duty 4

If you don't have the tools to open your 360 go to best buy or an office supply store and get a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the dvd drive. If that doesn't work then the lens needs to be cleaned with a q-tip and alcohol. This has worked for me on numerous occasions.

3 red light

3 red lights? in a kinda 3/4 circle?
if so you have RROD (red ring of death)
only thing to do if you still have warranty or something is to bring it back and they will send it back to microsoft,
Its unfixable unless by a technician.
Unlucky man its happened to most of us (me twice >_<)
