xbox 360 making awful noise

#1FnlCut357Posted 11/12/2013 6:29:26 PM
When I turn on my 360 it makes an awful noise, almost like something is hung, and the xbox start-up screen will not come on. I have to turn it off and back on 7-8 times then it will come on and work fine. Any ideas what is wrong?

Is there a disc spinning in the 360? Is the 360 coated with dust inside?
I hate games with bad game design

It doesn't matter if a disk is in it or not. I opened the case and there is some dust, but not covered. I held the 360 up to my ear when it was making the noise and the noise is coming from the back, like it could be the internal cooling fans. Could those be the cause?

Well, motors are the likely cause of noise, so I'd guess the fan or disc drive. Since it's hanging at start up, disc drive would have seemed more likely to me, since it always spins that up disc or not when you turn on the power.
You can't make an omelette without crushing dozens of eggs beneath your steel boot and then publicly disemboweling the chickens that laid them as a warning.

I feel kind of stupid now. Turns out it was the stupid intercooler making the noise and for some reason not letting the 360 boot. I took the intercooler off and it has came on everytime with no noise. But thanks for all of ya'lls help.

Some of those intercoolers are total rubbish and will make your 360 RROD sooner assuming you have an older one.
