2.16? You know its up to 2.60? Try updating it again.

If you have trouble updating it, download the 2.60 update from http://www.us.playstation.com/PS3 and put it on a memorystick of any kind. Insert the memory stick into the PS3 (with newer PS3's you'll need a usb drive) The site will tell you how to make the folder the PS3 will read from.

You can use the service recovery menu by turning your PS3 off then holding the power button while turning it on till you hear two beeps, your PS3 controller cannot be pluged in while you do this. It will bring up a screen telling you to connect the PS3 controller, once you do that go to the system update and update it.

I can,t load the games


Hello,

Which can games aren't loading up? If you were able to play them before, then you just need to restart your computer. It should work after restarting it.

By the way, I suggest that you install RadarSync in your computer. It optimizes your computer's performance. Radarsync is a maintenance software thus it fixes minor system problems. You don't need anything with it because it automatically updates and maintains your computer.

I hope this helps.

Hold F8 while booting to go into safe mode, or last known good configuration. Then, preform the update from there, and that should fix your problem.

Ds lite is reading system date error


Known problem with the NDS Cards but here is a temporary fix:Take out the NDS cards and start up DS without them
  • Tap the symbol in the middle of the screen at the bottom that looks like a DS.
  • Tap the blue box with a calender and clock in.
  • Change the date a month or two back.
  • Restart DS with NDS cards in.
Even though this is temporary the people at NDS are working for a solution. But until then you might just have to keep putting the date back.

Playstation3 is not loading games at all


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not load the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu. I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

My pc has create a problem that has problem when i start game i


If you would have listed the model & manufacture of your graphics card or if the graphics card is built into the board the (Model number of the motherboard)
Or if the graphics card has been added to your system, (The name of card & model number).
Finding an answer for your problem would go a bit faster & be more accurate.

If your graphics card is built into your motherboard or if the graphics card is installed into an AGP/PCI or PCI-E port, you'll need to uninstall your graphics driver software. The error message you posted; (Your display driver created a problem). One or more driver files are most likely corrupt.
To correct this you will need to open windows control panel. Than open the icon, Add/Remove programs. Find your graphics driver software & uninstall it. After which windows will want to restart.
(Do so). When windows finishes loading re-install the driver software for your graphics card. (Your graphics driver software should be on a CD).
Than restart windows, even if windows does not ask you too. When windows finishes loading again. Load windows update service. Click the start button, slide your mouse to All Programs, than slide to & click on Windows update. Install any updates windows finds.
(Do not install windows explorer version 8.0) Too many bugs in version 8.0.
While on windows update site look to the left. If you see that windows also has hardware updates, include these in the update process. (Restart your system when downloading is finished or if windows request it).
Lastly, before you try playing a game download & run this free program named RegCure. (This program will clean your system from left over junk& non needed files).
Click on the link below to download RegCure;

If you still receive en error message or if your game locks up/ freezes, provide the information I mentioned above so I can better help find a fix.

Cheers!
Thanks for using FixYa!

Problems with loading windows vista home premium


Try rebooting with LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION by restarting your computer and pressing f8 until the black and white safemode options screen comes up. There you will see a number of options, one which says last known good configuration.

If that doesn't work, you will need to repair your windows installation with the windows disk.
