Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My ps3 wont let me load a couple of my games and just keeps freezing wa can i do
It is freezing because your playstation is to close to the tv and its getting to hot...it is due to overheating you are having this problem ... so try moving it to another spot....you must take care to keep it properly vented.......
The system is prone to overheating, particularly if you happened to have bought older stock.
One way to deal with this is to stand it vertical, and put a small desk fan behind it.Turn on the fan when you turn on the game. I know it's an annoyance but it is a very simple and effective way to work around the problem.
DO NOT use an intercooler fan or any cooling device that gets power from the playstation. It just makes it worse.
when thermal compound fails it gets overheated so you need to look into this too ...replacing the thermal compound on the heat syncs and it should only cost about $5.00 to fix your playstation.
