I was having the same problem. It was COD WAW causing the problems. I had to restore mine to factory defaults 2 days after I played the game but now everything has been working fine. If you can't see anything to get to factory reset, you can turn your power off on the back and then turn it back on, hold your finger on the turn on switch on the front for about 3-4 secs til you hear 2 beeps and it should come up and let you restore from there. Thats what I done and its been 2mths now and still no problems. I was on the verge of sending it in til I found this solution online. Hope it helps! BTW, i didnt do the full restore where you lose all game saves, just the easy one restore factory SETTINGS!

Forgot code and hint answer how do i reset without these


Step 1: Enter Safe Mode


a) Start or re-start your computer.


b) Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.


c) Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.


d) Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.


e) Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen


Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.


Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7


Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:


1. Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.


2. In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', click 'Users'.


3. Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click 'Set Password'.


4. Type and confirm the new password, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)


Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.

Hi all, never experienced this problem before and didn't come across it anywhere. so when i turn my ps3 on it starts up with the ps3 logo screen and then goes onto the background scenario and thats...


Not really an idea, but a theory. It sounds like your system can not load the user interface, and beyond trying a different hard drive, this is beyond my experience to fix. I suggest checking some message boards and perhaps calling Sony. Keep me informed on what you find, as I will be looking as well.

Starting up Problems


I found it 2 min. ago. Ok here: while your ps3 is on hold the power button on the ps3 for you will hear one beep, keep holding it then when you hear the second beep take your finger off. Your ps3 should turn off. Now push the power button while holding your finger on it again, you will hear two single beeps, then a double beep, let your finger ago and a screen should appear with six options. Chose something like reset(or restore) file data or something like that and click yes, this wont do anything to your game/music/movie/etc. files but now your ps3 shall work.
