Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Sound quits after game loads.

When I turn on my XBOX 360 the normal sounds can be heard. When the game starts there is no sound. It worked fine last night when I quit playing and the next morning it is doing this.

    Xbox 360 games. Halo 3 and Madden 08. Since posting this, I have found that if I go into the console settings and change the sound to Regular Stereo instead of Dolby Digital Surround Sound I get sound again. But not in Surround Sound.

Have Microsoft fix or replace your system, I have the same issue, on Thursday night everthing worked fine, but on Friday morning, I had no surround sound. I have only had the system for two months and a few days.

Why when i turned my xbox 360 it came up with a xbox 360 logo and it said action not avaliable and when i played a game it made it a loud sound and when i took the disc back in it worked fined is that a...

Please give more detail!
No game in tray it says action not available?
The Loud Sound, is this over the speakers or does it sound like the disc hitting the laser, or is it just the disc spinning normally?

You may want to try and disable autostarting to the disc, set it so when it turns on it loads the dashboard. Also if you are burning games, and your ixtreme version is wrong for that game type, i.e. wave 4 on ix1.4, you would see errors like this

Loud buzzing noise

Mine is loud also when playing games. When playing DVD's it is not. I think it is a factory defect on some of the systems. I would not attempt to pull apart the DVD drive and try and fix it. It is working and on an XBOX 360 you should feel lucky that it is.

Sound but no picture on my xbox 360

Have you tried the simple but effective, pushing the plugs in harder? And putting the 360 on its side so the disk tray opens forward and you basicly drop a disk onto the tray? And lastly have you tried pushing all plugs and everything in harder? into the t.v and 360?

Xbox 360 Fans Accelerating

The Xbox 360 has a notoriously loud fan system. Usually you just have to turn up the volume on your tv a little, and once you're into the game you pretty much forget about the sound.

My XBox 360 plays video but has no sound

Put the Hd video cable in the slot and put the regular audio cables in their slot. It should work then.

Xbox 360 controller for windows

I also registered to post the solution. This is actually a very easy fix.

Goto > Start > Control Panel
Open > Sounds and Audio Devices
Goto > "Audio" Tab
Change > "Default Device" back to your sound card rather than the x-box controller.
Press > "OK"

When you plug in the x-box controller it makes itself the default audio playback because it has a headphone jack on it.
