Lil' bro just bought XBox for $50 from a yard sale.

Works perfectly, I love the fact that I can upload music.

The thing is that it seems to make a high-pitch noise.... probably the fan...


anyone had this problem? is it normal?

Coming and Going.

Have your tried opening it up to see where the sound is coming from while its on? its most likely the fan.

Ya, I would take the case off, and run it and see where the noise is coming from. If its an old Xbox, it will have a small, 40mm GPU fan, which could be causing the noise.
