If you know what kind of video card you have, I'd suggest getting updated drivers. If you have an Nvidia card, www.nvidia.com, ATI, ati.amd.com.

You can also do start menu->run and enter 'dxdiag' without the quotes and that should tell you what you need to know about your card to find out the right information. Let me know if you have a question.

Did you try removing the new game and reinstall it?
If there is an error in the game, it won't cure itself.

As this game is old now, Infinity Ward may have turned off the servers as there is not enough support for the multiplayer aspect. This happens regularly with game that are a couple of years old and not many people play online.

Use a small brush and a vaccum cleaner, or a can of compressed air(air duster) to clean your pc's fans.

I have never heard of needing to pay any kind of fee to play games on the PS3. Is the fee needed to play the game offline or only to play online with others, because I've only heard of a fee to buy games off of the Playstation store, and that is a one-time payment

this might be something simple like cleaning the laser lense you can by a disk to do this or you can wipe it with a soft cloth but make sure not to scratch it does it play some games or wont it play any if it dont play no games then when it is switched off gently push the laser back to the start position on the middle and then try loading a game if this dont work then you will need to buy a new laser
