some have said you can just turn it on and let it heat up ... the piece would expand, and work, until you shut it off again and it cooled down.
It doesn't matter with mine anymore. I don't play it. It may get some use by a friend soon when I move in an apartment with them in a couple
months, but, I realized, most games that I would like that comes out on the 360, comes out also either on the PC or the PS3. Will be getting a new PC
when I move, and my PS3 runs well and quietly.
My 360 is loud from the fans ... the hard drive access is loud ... then you start a game and the disc drive is really loud. I would say as loud or
louder than your standard oscillating fan on high (mine is old, so it may be louder than it was when new
). I would hate to hear yours if it
increased that much, I already joked with people and asked them if it sounded like a jet engine to them.
I know the PS3 makes noise, but, I never had to turn the volume up to cover system noise! Though, if you had/have a DreamCast, you are most likely
accustomed to loud disc drives
I am glad that worked for you. If mine does tank, I bought a 3 yr warranty when I picked mine up because of the RRoD thing ... since that was before
MS extended the warranty. I can take it back and get a gift card for my purchase amount. I just hope -if- it fails, it is not the day after that
The whole shipping it back thing, takes a while, if they end up giving you a different console, you lose your info, or if they let you keep your hard
drive, it has issues with your DLC because of hardware conflicts.
