For playing games online and in real time you need a good internet connection with good download and upload speeds..a speed of 1MBPS should be quite good..do find out from Orange what speed they are giving..or check the speed in http://speedtest.net/..also if other applications are connected to the internet can affect speed and quality..like other network computers,downloads etc..if the speed is less you can always change the internet plan..some ISP are quite game friendly eg for Xbox live..hope it helps!

On-line Gaming problem


To be honest if it only llags when you are using the headset then it is probably the headset the there is nothing you can really do but the gaming routers that can be bought from most good game shops can boost the signal to give you less lag, but over all you would probably be better with and xbox 360 for online gameplay

PS3 wont load or play games, Just a blank screen.....


Try playing a Demo game, if you dont have any download it from playstation network. The point is just to force the sytem to play games and if you notice, movies and games are listed under a different folder in the icon's list, so playing a demo game will force the system to play the game and you should be able to play your games fine after that,. Thing is that a game's info might've got stuck in freeze mode when the system was shut off unproperly while a game disk was still inside, that's all. Good luck, dont wanna see any PS3 comrades suffering the unspeakable horridness of not been able to play games. Be strong my friend.

i suggest unplugging the cat5 cable(the one that provides internet access) or remove the wifi adaptor and test if it runs good. if that doesn't work, then your problem lies with the actual xbox hardware. if it works, you have a very unstable internet connection.
