Check if your new cd has an uneven surface , like it's bent . Is the grinding noise occuring for all the other games ?, if yes you should check your Xbox's CD reader head .

If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Check everything with engine cranking. If your missing all three, check your crank sensor. Can you check applicable trouble codes?

If your saying the starter motor won't even crank the engine, that is a different issue?

Ever since we have bought halo 3 for our xbox 360 every other game we have purchased and played has froze up including halo 3.It could be in the middle of game play or as we turn the game on.We are very...


likely coincidental timing with a hardware failure likely with the cooling of the unit. if you suspect halo 3 downloaded something you can delete data from the hard drive in dahboard/my xbox/system settings/memory clear out halo 3 data or perhaps wipe/format the whole drive. more than likely the unit is overheating, try moving it to a clearer area, try pointing a fan at it (experiment with placement of the unit and any active cooling you apply) and see if the problem clears. try to clean any dust you can from the unit especially in the ventilation areas.

There could be one of 2 things going on here. Ether you are having a software or hardware problem. To address the software problem you will need to connect the XBOX 360 to XBOX Live and download the latest updates to the system. Most likely this is your issue as the XBOX 360 came out before Halo 3 and you do not have an OS updates on the system to load it properly.

If you do not have an LIVE account. You might trying to check with a friend to see if he will log into your system to run the updates. Another option is that they sell just One Month LIVE card access cards for around 8 Dollars. These cards will let you get on line and get the updates with out having to get a one year subcription. Note alot of your newer games give you a One Month card with the game when you by it new to be able to get any updates you might need.

Now if the updates do not fix the problem then you have some kind of hardware problem and you may need to check with your local repair shop to see if they can fix tthe problem.

Hope this helps

Playstation 3 won't power on?


Hello.
This is a hardware failure caused by heat. I have done TONS of research on this problem as I have a unit that is like this too. But I bought mine used. I hear that Sony will fix it or send you a replacement for FREE. I have been told by over 30 people that Sony did it for them. Just be honest and polite to the customer service people. Go to www.playstation.com choose your region, click on playstation 3, then Support (upper right corner) and there should be the contact information.
If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to hit my "Ask Me" button.
I hope this helps. Good luck to you!
