Re: system restart in the middle of games
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.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

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

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.
