    From the time I turn on my Xbox 360 to the time I turn it off the fans will be going full speed and it sounds like a friggen Airport not to mention when the disc is being read it makes loud scratch noises(Does not Damage disc).


    My Xbox's manufacture date is [02-07-2008]


    Maybe this is happening on purpose so it keeps it cool all the time? what could it be?

    Its probably because its not in a cooled area. Try putting it somewhere else. Also try to vacuum out the dust, if any.

    Or get some canned air and blow out the vents. Works for me.

    I have had my Xbox for 2 months? It is in wide open space with nothing over or around it.

    Is there dust in the back of the vents?

    Not at all. My xbox will be going full-blast fans while the game is in and right when I got to dashboard they hit back to normal.

    Mine is like that too. There definitely nothing wrong with your Xbox. It's just loud. Nothing you have to worry about.

    Usually happens with older drives. My Benq is silent. My Hitachi is really loud.
