    Thank you for your solution, however, as soon as the console is powered on the system freezes. The system will not allow me to get to the menu screen to reset it back to the factory settings. Any suggestions besides buying a new one? : )

On startup, before menu screen, ps3 freezes


Do you recieve an error message on screen when that happens? Turn your system to standby mode (red light on the console) and press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps then let go. This will reset the system to factory defaults. If that does not work call Sony customer support.

PS3 won't even show the menu screen


I suggest trying to reset the system by turing the system off first. ( Do not cut the power switch off in the back of the system). Then hold the on button for 3 beeps. See what happens.

Freezing screeen


No other game freezes? May just be a defective game, take it back to the store you purchased it from and request a swap.
