    It started with Fallout but I'd played that for so long I just figured I was making it remember too much but my husband got me prince of persia for xmas and 5 minutes into the tuitorial it freezes up and when I restart it, "an error occurred during during start up (8001002B) I tried a couple other times and sometimes it gave the error code as 80010514. Really sucks cuz my warranty ran out like a week before this happened.

You are going to have to go to System Settings and Restore PS3, this will delete everything but it will start you out fresh and brand new like when you boght your ps3.

I wiped my entire harddrive and restored my ps3, it took 10 hours.........and didnt fix my problem .ive already purchased a new ps bcuz ONLY option sony gives u is 2 send it off pay 150$ n takes 4 weeks.........i strongly urge evryone to not buy a ps3 anywhere than best buy they have an in store warranty program where any problems they cant fix they replace 4 next 2 years..warranty is apx. 60$ but, in my opinion, is worth every penny. i have never been so disrespected by a company than when i contacted SONY.. and if i wasnt a die hard ps fan i would never buy another SONY product(now, will only buy from best buy cuz of in-store warranty)

What's happen to my ps 3? have error d5027

That error basically means your network connection to the PS3 network servers is unstable. Given the time of year and the number of kids that have snow days and are at home, and parents staying home working across the internet, the most likely cause is simple network congestion. You should notice this issue go away early morning when fewer people are online, and get worse as the day progresses. In some cases, you can set up a VPN or Virtual Private Network connection that can help. If you want to try that, go to this link for instructions on setting it up.

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller

After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.

Serial number for fifa manager 11 saying its invalid

I've also had this, I think since they have brought out Fifa Manager 13 or planned to they seem to have dumped all the serial authorisation codes at solidshield for fifa manager 11 or something - currently in the process of trying to get it sorted with EA online help - which I'd suggest you try through the EA website but expect a long delay in answering. So far all they have done is given me the digital version of the product - which wasn't what I was having difficulty with, Origin recognises the product code it is Solidshield which fails to authorise. Still awaiting further response from EA help (5 days of owning a game I can't play so far and have only received a 15% Origin discount off older games.) Brilliant...
