Hi,
probably worn bearings. Or clogged with dust.
turn-off, unplug all leads, get vacuum cleaner on it and suck the blighter.
re-set back up.
nothing to lose eh ?

My xbox 360 switchs of after 5 mins of playing what worng wiht it?


This can commonly be caused by overheating. If you touch the Xbox, it should be slightly warm, not hot to the touch. Are the fans running? Usually they will be very loud especially when the Xbox is hot. If they aren't running, or the Xbox is very warm or hot to the touch, you might have success by getting a cooler kit. They are extra fans that help keep it cool.

My xbox 360 is making clicking noises, vibrates alot, and is extreamly loude while running, i think its the fan in it but im not sure, so what should i do?


Hi Charles

There are several reasons your console is noise , First remove your game and
listen and see if the noise is reduced also the vibration should stop too.
I have seen or heard rather this before . The cause was a the drive spindle
hub some how got skew so the disk wobbled as it was spinning.

The fix was simply to replace the hub/spindel motor .
The rattling sound may be from the tilt switch or pieces of plastic
bouncing around . you will have to open your console to remove the
the small chunks of plastic + blowing it out will help cooling also.

The fan should not make that much noise . If it seems to be loud
then you may need to replace the heat sink compound on the G.P.U.
and the C.P.U.

if you have any questions feel free to ask.

I have dell 3300mp,when I turn the power on it makes a very loud noise. It does not make the sound in standby or cool down. It does work and display a signal okay, but it is very loud. Sound like a fan?,...


The main fan that cools the lamp is mostly high speed when the unit is running. when it shuts down it slows the fan down, until it stops in standby. So the noise is only really loud when it is showing a picture.

try setting the fan to eco mode (slower running) and see if the noise is acceptable. If it is still too loud then you will have to replace it. Have a look at the fan and see if any of the plastic blades are missing.

Dell optiplex GX620 loud processor fan noise like a vaccum. I upgraded to windows 7 and also upgraded to 4gb of ram and a new hd video card as well as a 1tb hd. I bought 4 more gbs of ram but windows...


I don't think you can install 8gb of ram into that desktop. If the processor fan is too loud check it for dust or any other obstructions. If there aren't any try replacing the fan - it could be a bearing in the fan.

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.

Sounds like a bad fan


Over time, everything gets old. I suggest buying a "Inter-cooler" it helps keep everything cool, and takes a little less pressure off the fan.

Xbox cooling fan sounds louder than normal


Yes, the cooling fans are commonly loud. Your xbox has a sensor on it when the CPU and GPU heat up, the rear fans suck more air out by turning up the rpms the fans run at.

Cooling fan


Yes. It can be replaced. Try to check which fan is making that sound. Do you have a laptop or a PC? On a PC, there are 3 standard fans inside it. one for the CPU, one for the power supply and one for the computer casing fan as well. It depends on which of those fans it's coming from. On a laptop, some laptops' fans actually makes a loud noise which is common but there is a way that it could be lessened but it might slow down your pc and it might overheat it as well. The loud noise on the fans of a laptop actually indicates that it's trying to cool down the system. If it doesn't stop the loud noise, it could indicate a problem switching the fans back to normal and would just continue to spin fast. Try to contact your PC tech for further diagnostics on the laptops fan to indicate if the problem is with the fan or the mainboard as well.
