After playin Fallout3 for awile PS3 freezes wont play anygame

I've had my PS3 for 14 months and never had any problems. Now after palyin Fallout 3 of and on for over 100 hours it freezes all the time. And I cant play any games or any movies. I can mess around online with it but thats it. I have tried everything I can find online to try to resolve this but nothing. I love the game but wow this really blows. Unfortunately I am broke as a joke and cant shell out 150 bones to sony to fix it. Anyone got any ideas, something else I have not tried but I think I have and I have a feelin I'm screwed. Thanx for any feedback PEACE

Since it is out of warranty you should take it apart and get the part number for your dvd drive and buy a new one.... but since you are broke, then forget it. They cost about 40-70 bucks to do yourself. Google replace ps3 drive online for directions on how to do this.
