My N64 freezes up after a few minutes of play is there anything I can do or is there someone or somewhere that will fix it


Well maybe the console needs to be cleaned out then dust causes video game consoles to over heat 10 times faster than their normal rates because it acts like a barricade for the system. Or if the voltage is off it can cause stalling or it the ac adapter isnt putting out the right connection for the console it will freeze. Clean out the gamepacks with rubbing alcohal and qutips too.

Games freeze up


Sounds like an issue with over-heating. Make sure that there is good ventilation around the device. If there is, then the power supply or main board may be failing. When this happens you'll find the time you can run will steadily decrease between runs.

Xbox 360 is freezing with no red rings and an intercooler?


The freeze ups normally happen before the red lights of doom and they are caused by the GPU and the CPU getting too hot and the soldering snaps off so they lose connection.

If you stop the heat build up you will be fine.

You can do this yourself using a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

As long as you stop most of the heat getting to the GPU and the CPU you will be fine.

PS3 freezes but sound still works


when it happens, give it some time, like 5-10 min. the ps3 is most likely accessing the hard drive, and if it is, shutting down in the middle of it could currupt your hdd. if it doesnt work, even after 10 min, call sony tech support, but if it works fine afterwords, i dont see why it would be neccessary. unless it gets worse, i think you should just turn it on, turn it off after a few min, then back on, and then play.

hi there, The scratches on your disks are usually caused by the laser Assembly on the Hitachi dvd-rom. If the console freezes on other games it may be over heating. Please contact Microsoft for warranty support and get the system repair. If you are no longer able to get warranty support please contact me and i can assist you with part numbers, where to order, and required tools. Good luck
