To my knowledge of my understanding i can see that your system all always heat up before working for a very few minutes and for that you have to check the Processors fan if it is rolling and if it is not then turn your system upside down and disaasembly the system and remove the fan that is not wor4king and replace with a new one and that give you your rest on your pc.

Sounds like a virus or something, If you can afford it buy Norton for tablets it is great I personally use it and it has a handy dandy lock feature that unless you know the password good luck getting into it. Otherwise contact the supplier or manufacturer for further technical support. I don't see why it would do all that other than a virus or something.

When playing a movie it will be pausing and also not able to play games with high graphics


The fastest way to check or correct it to make sure you have the latest software drivers for your graphics card and for the Windows operating system you are using.

Another thing might be your graphics card may be overheating and simply shuts down or not enable you to use it to its fullest potential. If you can put a normal house fan next to your pc open the side door and see if it helps. If it does and you can watch a movie and play high graphics games then its overheating.

But get the latest drivers for your graphics card first.

Can playstation act as dvd player or i should buy dvd player separately?


Yes, it can play DVD movies as well as Music CD'S and CD-R's music. You dont have to buy another machine. One tip thou when using it as a DVD plyr you might put it where ventilation can get to it - due to the overheating problem PS2 has. I use mine all the time, and I put a fan next to it, so I can play longer and watch movies longer. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

My xbox will not play regular movies or games. it


If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Once the heat stops the games start.

My PS3 wont play any movies but still plays video games???


Ok so its 60GB its definatly alright to play movies and all sorts, but if you are that desperate to watch movies then you may want to reset to factory settings just access settings and look for reset console, then it would start from square 1 you have to make your accounts and earn your trophies again but if you want to watch movies desperatly then recommed you do that or go to game settings in the game column and have a poke in the folders because there might be a few things in there or go to the film column and check for setting sin there or go to the settings column and check for film settings in there its nothing to do with the updates thats for sure because ive done the same as you but havent played the game in a while but im still able to watch films
