    PS3 question

    This is just a tiny nuisance that I have with my PS3, and I want to know if it is normal.

    Whenever I start up a game, the PS3 makes weird noises. It keeps doing this for about 15 minutes before it stops.

    Is this normal?

    hard to say, what kind of strange noises? Sounds like a jet engine? sounds like grinding gears? if you give an example it would be easier to diagnose the problem. Any strange noises coming from the PS3 isn't necessarily normal, but depending on the sound it's making it may or may not be harmful to the hardware/software.

    a blowing noise, I would say no problem.

    beeping, well I'd get it checked out.

    It sounds mostly like grinding gears.

    Gears grinding sounds like a problem with your blue-ray drive, if it is still under warrenty I would give sony a call, and see if they could switch the drive out for you (make sure to tell them you want your current system back but fixed, or they will just send a replacement) there is a slim chance something is caught in the drive, but from the sounds of it the drive is taking a bit of time to get up to speed, which is causing the grinding sound that eventually disappears. If your system is no longer under warrenty I would suggest checking your area for a computer repair shop and seeing if they do console repairs. Hopefully this helps you out
