I was playing Far Cry last night, after a short session on the Internet, when a yellow flash appeared on my screen, followed by the PC freezing up. I had to press the reset button to re-boot.
When Windows ''opened'' remnants of Far Cry remained visible on the screen. I re-booted again and just had a garbled mess on the screen. I re-booted again and pressed F8 to start in safe mode. This is when I noticed that a lot of the options were miss-spelt, or corrupted - Wifdows instead of Windows, etc. Safe mode started OK,though and I could use the PC in this mode, but it will not start up in normal mode. It looks like a virus has corrupted my boot sector or registry... I am using AVG free 7.5 and have had no virus problems until last night...
I have an Intel 1.8Ghz dual-core processor and am using a Geforce 8500GT graphics card.

Slow internet connection, or corrupted files.
I have no solution for a slow connection, but for corrupted files, select the game title in your game list (which may only show up while disk is inserted), then press the triangle button for options and select "delete".
Then do a database rebuild (This also erases any messages, but will not lose game data or account info) - (To rebuild databse) Eject any disk that may be in your PS3, and power off. Press and hold the power button on the console, until it cycles on and then shuts itself off. Press and hold again until the console beeps once, and then rapidly beeps again two times. A video detection message should appear, select "yes" if you can see it, if not, the screen will automaticly switch to composite video after a short moment and then go to the PS3 maintanence menu. From that, select "rebuild database". When it is finished, it should automaticly restart.
Reinstall and run to get it to update the game again and it should work fine. If not, then repeat this solution, but also look for any related game data files after deleting the game itself. You may lose any saved games, but any other progress sould resync from the PSN servers once the game is reinstalled.
Thanks for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.
What appears to be the issue, is that your .vmx (Virtual Machine File extension) which is what how your Windows XP virtual machine terminal launches and works, may possibly be corrupted. I have been using VMWare Fusion for my Macs for nearly 3 years and it is not uncommon for this type of file to become corrupted and fail to launch for no apparent reason.
The usual way to correct this inability to launch issue, is if you can use the VMWare Fusion console to revert back to a previous Snapshot (saved backups or "snapshots" of your previous Windows XP virtual terminal sessions) of that Windows Virtual Machine terminal in order to recover the functionality of the vm.
If you are not familiar with what a Snapshot in VMWare is, then that would mean chances are you have not used that function and therefore you would have no snapshots of any previous Windows XP sessions to revert back to.
If this is the case, the what I can recommend you try, is to reinstall the VMWare Fusion 3 software to overwrite the current copy you have to see if this can help repair your affected Windows XP .vmx file.
If this process does not help, then you may unfortunately have to create a new Windows XP virtual terminal if you have no back ups or Snapshots of previous sessions.
Please feel free to reply back to this post if you have further questions.

From what I no when the 360's light indicated flashes yellow it means it's overheated, try letting cool down. I have had so many problems with my 360 and the cdrom drive is number 1. When my drive started making all that noise i almost started to cry. What i did was called the Xbox Helpdesk and they fixed the problem right away. Call the Xbox Helpdesk at this number: 1-800-469-9269 (This munber will get you through faster). if you ahve any more questions just let me know....
