Question xbox 360 is really loud...

my xbox is really loud, like it doesnt sound smooth, it sounds really coarse, like something is hitting the cd in the cd drive. It sometimes stops, but usually goes on for a long period of time and is extremely annoying. I honeslty dont know what to do . Please help

How is the 360 sitting. Is it vertical or horizontal? My friend had his 360 vertical and it messed up the cd drive. Now the laser burns perfect circles on all of his games. I suggest leaving it horizontal.

It supposed to be loud from what ive read about it, but when u say hitting the cd, this doesnt sound good! Is it under warranty? MIght be the drive failing. If it is just noisey rather than defective there r ways of quieting it down if u search the net but these require u taking it to bits!

This site shows u how they tried to make it quieter...

Horizontal? It burned a circle in horizontal? It was vertical for me. It is like the PS2s. Advertised vertical, but screws it up. Microsoft will probably say something regarding having it vertical.
