Well, I got back from my friend's house.
I set my PS3 back up, but I decided to set it up vertically, so it would save some space on my new desk.
As soon as I booted up, everything was working just fine.
A few hours later it began to make a whirring noise. Naturally, I put it back horizontally in hopes it would stop. It did, but then it started again to the point where it was louder than the gameplay and some music I was playing.
Later, me and a friend were playing some MW3 together, and after getting owned we decided to play some Black Ops for the lulz.....Now my ps3 won't load games without having to reinsert the game constantly.
So.....Referring back to the title, any solutions? Should I try to repair in some way? If so, would it take away my data?
