Xbox 360 red Middle Light

I just turned my Xbox 360 on today and noticed that when I turn it on, it makes a really loud noise (Sounds like it's overheating) then the button you press to turn it on which is normally green, is red. There is no red rings, I've had those before this is only the middle light is red. I don't know what this means can anybody help me?

The middle light flashing is usually a god indication that your system is over heating due to poor ventilation, weather it be stuffed away in a closed, cramped space, or just dusty and clogged up on the inside.

Here is a page with some troubleshooting steps to possibly fix your issue:support.xbox.com/.../power-button-blinks-red

Last resort if none of the troubleshooting works is that your console needs to be repaired, or replaced.

If it's a slim make sure before you turn it on that all cables and HDD/THUMB STICKS(if they contain profile) ARE FULLY PLUGGED IN.

For a system that according to release statement from XBOX the NEW SLIM MODELS will NEVER RING LIGHT. LIERS! it does; for a system you claimed that red lights were not even installed on this system.

FYI when I got this my 320 HDD switched to "UNFORMATTED" LOST ALL DATA and had to re-format took 3-4 days to get system to do it( was not the system as I put my old 250 HDD in and it worked fine)XBL needs to check on this issue as the day it happened everyone was having connection issues(when my drive quit out) I see a PS4 in my furture as XBL forgot how to help people but are more then willing to take the cash & give no usefull help.

My Xbox gave me an error code last night. Before I was able to write it down, my screen went blank, had a red light where the power button is and now will not turn on? I'm assuming it needs sent in?
