Hello. Your games wouldn't run slow even if you only had 1GB of memory left. The only time the hard drive will cause a game to run slow is loading a saved game. Anyother time it would have no effect.

If you have doubts, run a PS3 restore/quick format. That will clear everything, even the hard drive. OR you can put in a different hard drive.

Most likely your laser is dirty, disks are dirty or scratched or the laser is getting ready to fail.

Pls help' why all my psp game getting slow?

If it's just a simple issue of everything running slow, then you've probably used most or all of the available space on the internal drive, and now the RAM equivalent is overloaded. A good basic clean out of the old files should help, but you may need to take more drastic steps.

My Tony Hawk Ride for XBox 360 won't connect. I've tried two different boards. The wireless console WILL connect, which seems to indicate that there's no problem with wireless connectivity, but the use...

There has to be a problem with your xbox. An actual problem with the board is impossible. Connection to xbox live has nothing to do with what you use in game.

Why can't i play ps2 games on ps3 consul?

ps2 games are ment to be only played at ps2 and ps3 games are only ment to be played at ps3. even though you might think that ps3 is a higher version of ps2 so ps3 should play the old games but its not like that. when a ps2 game is developed, it is made to only run on a ps2 platform and nothing else. its programed in such a way, that is why it will not run in a ps3 platform. its the same thing l;ike you cannot play a XBOX360 game on a ps3 platform cause the game company has made it not to run on other consoles.
hope it solves your problem.

My psp is running very slowly i think it is because of virus

unlikely i think, more likely that the motherboard or summit under the hood has a fault, did you mean running slow on the menu screen or when running a game? if its when running a game it prob the motor or the laser or both.thay can be replaced or cleaned or better yet go custom firmware and do away with using the hope that helps.

Ps1 games slow on ps2

It's because the CD's that the PS2 is designed to be used for are DVD (discs) these have more complex data on them and thus the low level discs are read with such intensity that they cannot declare all the information on them!
