Loud noises whenever I play a game, the disc drive makes loud noises. It sounds like a fan but when I'm in marketplace, the system runs nice and quiet. How can I solve this. I even pump the volume on my tv to try to drown out the noise.

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.

Why does my Acer laptop sound like it's taking off ! There is a whirring noise form underneath on the back left, i thought it might be the fan but it starts as soon as i turn it on but after some time it...


Hi Ian check to see that you have not left a CD disc in the CD rom /dvd drive--- sometimes they will cause this sort of noise on start up when the computer is looking for an operating system it may look in the cd drive first and scan the non operating system disc before booting from the hard drive

I hope this helps

My wii is making a whirring noise. Still reads


This is no doubt your system fan. it may be dusty and now having some trouble doing what it does. compressed air should clean this for you, unless you want to open it and manually clean the fan.
Hope this helps you.

Xbox 360 is loud - sounds like a loud fan motor. How can I make it run quietly?


You can try installing the game you want to play on the Xbox 360 Hard Disk, which reduces the motor noise to an extent, however there is no permanent way to fix the loud fan motor noise while playing the game with the disk in the drive.

Make sure you keep your Xbox 360 unit well ventilated, ensure it does not gather dust near the small vents and openings on the unit.

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.

Loud air intake engine noise on startup


I would guess it is the electronic fan clutch. It will cause the fan to run too fast (very loud) and the light will come on sometimes.

Loud grinding, spinning noise with game in console.


Even if it is still playing dvds it might be the dvd-rom drive, usally it spins a game faster than a dvd. Or it could be the harddrive if it was trying to save something. try to download a demo or something to check the hard drive.

Possibly the fan (usually in the back of these units) in the system is bad or excessive??
