You can try these steps, but it will delete all saved games :

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 :

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.

Beeping sound when starting


Usually when you first turn the power on ... it's usual to hear a couple of beeping sounds . And then, you may hear whirling/clicking sounds when your disk starts up (rotating) and your CD/DVD drive starts up, etc.. Then the monitor/screen lights up and starts to show the operating system (e.g. Windows) panel ... as it starts up.

If your system just beeps ... and beeps ... and beeps... and nothing else happens, the screen doesn't light up and show anything (for a few minutes), it likely the system is not starting up properly.

If you can clarify what actually happens, maybe I can offer more suggestions/information to help.

Dx2200 stops booting up. then shows a purple and yellow dotted screen !!! why ?


If your screen shows a clear picture to start with then it is most likely the video card driver. I don't know what you mean by no access to safe mode, but if you can get into safe mode you should be able to uninstall the video driver and restart. Safe mode is usually accessed by hitting F8 before windows starts so as soon as you see a picture on the screen start hitting F8 a few times until you get to the safe mode selection menu.

You will need to reseat your memory. Sometimes the memory can cause this to happen. If you still have an issue after reseating your memory or need to know how to reseat it please leave a message and I will try to assist you further.

Good Luck.

I remove the battery during 15 minutes and nothing happen, i reset the jumper and nothing happen. the request for a password still there nay aother sugestions? i would greatly apreciate them.


well you are misunderstanding, taking the battery from desktop pc effects only the time of the computer and doesnot change anything, while moving the jumper from one side to other break the bios password. when you replace your jumper wait some seconeds and turn your computer on while the jumper is replaced, it will make some beeps or will ask to reset the password depends each model, then shut the computer off, put the jumper back in the right place and turn on the computer, then you will notice no more bios password. make sure you move the right jumper usually the on close to the battery and for more help google this problem it will show you the pics how to do it.

Hi I cant turn on my computer its Windoes XP home edition and never happened before when I press the switch buttom theres a noice 3 x beep and thats it then nothing happens once appeader a option to resume...


If you can't get into safe mode by pressing F9 during start-up you may have to reload windows. If you can get into safe mode, back-up data and reset the PC to the last configuration on which it worked. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
