Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Blue Screen of Death has lead to problems

Ok so I exited a game and for no reason my playstation 3 screen goes blue and has all this text in different languages about how the system settings went corrupt and it needed to restore the system settings. So I click X to do it like it tells me too and it reboots fine, but sadly I had to put back in all of my settings and restart my online account, but luckily all of my saved data remained. Also now for some reason there is a small star beside each of the usernames whichs looks exactly like this *. So I think ok that's cool, I've got a star by my name now. But now there are some more serious porblems. First off, I go onto one user and start a game and as its starting up a box appears and says that the game data cannot be opened and that it needs to abort, so when I get into that game all of my saved data was gone. Then after that I go onto another user who had a saved file for that game and his is still fine when I start the game. So then I go back to my user and start another game and it says that tropy support no longer works for that game so what on earth is going on, my playstation 3 has been messed up ever since the blue screen, what should I do?

The cuputer goe on but the screen is blue , i have done what the told me to do in the owner's manuel ,but the screen stay blue


Sounds like the "blue screen of death" if your running Windows and there is text. If it's just a blank blue screen your monitor may be going bad or your can try checking the connections on the monitor and your computer.
Please let me know if this does not fix your problem or you desire more information.

Understand BSOD and Troubleshoot



1. What is Blue Screen Of Death ?

There are major reasons too for the blue screen of death as we find BSOD in Windows Vista for a different reason. Windows Vista runs on Longhorn technology while Windows XP runs on NT technology.

We have different Booting structures for both and also the Kernal and Micro Kernal Management of both systems vary.

The WDDM (Windows Device Driver Management Principles which applies on both Os are at different levels of rigidness.

Firstly, we need to understand why this happens.
When you install Software and new programs in your computer, new entries and other changes will be made on your Registry. As more and more entries pile up, some of them may become infected with spyware, or go missing because the System does not always restore them. As a result, when the programs that use the entries need to run, your computer may suddenly process very slowly, or worse, the blue screen of death happens. All these problems can be cured with a Registry Cleanup.
The amount of changes to your registry is dependent on the user's amount of usage of the computer. A newly purchased computer will usually run very quickly, but after a few months, users find that their Computers Processing Speed may start to slow down. This is the effect of a poorly maintained registry.

2. How To Trouble shoot and prevent of Blue Screen of Death?

So, how do we get rid of blue screen death? Simply put, run a registry cleaner. The registry cleaner will find all of the problems associated with the registry and will fix them or remove the errors. Don’t be surprised at the amount of errors you find the first time to scan the registry. But, within 5 minutes, you can have all of them fixed. Then for maintenance and to ensure your computer is running without any errors, run this software weekly. This will ensure you have the blue screen of death fixed.

Good Luck.

I think the blue screen you are reffering to is the blue screen of death. This happens when a serious failure occurs. Your OS's system files may have got corrupted and that would be the reason for this. Try reinstalling Windows.
If the problem persists, get your Ram memory checked by a technician.
