If your PS3 lags or freezes when loading content from the hard drive, the drive either lacks free space or is faulty. To create more space, try removing items from your hard drive or getting a new hard drive with a higher storage capacity. A faulty hard drive must be replaced.
Ok, if it is simply the image that is freezing and it is still staying on then there is hope for the PS3.
If however it is turning off with 3 beeps and flashing the red light then that is serious.
Please try the following if it is just the display freezing :
Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)
Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep one more time and turn off into standby mode (red light on)
Release the power button
Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and this time there will be 2 quick beeps together. Release the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.
The PS3 will start up asking you to connect the controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then continue.
After doing the above a menu will load with 6 options. Choose option 3 "Restore File System". This will re-install the PS3 software if it has become corrupt. Ignore any messages about corrupt hard drive, this is normal. If this step does not work try the above again but select option 4, then 5 if that doesn't work.
One of these options should get your PS3 up and running again.
Get off your duff and press the power button on the PS3 hold it down, until it beeps then the system will shut down, all you have to do then is press the ps button on your controller to restart the system.
when u r done playing and u want to turn ur PS3 off, keep holding the PS button u will see some kind a small menu asking u wither u want to turn off the system or the controller u go with the Turn off the System, thats how u should turn it off, DON'T U EVER shut ur PS3 off by pressing the power button, and about the Freezing thing i want u to turn ur Ps3 off totally NO LIGHT ON, now keep ur finger over the EJECT button and then turn ur PS3 ON buy pressing the 0/1 button from behind, ur PS3 wil make a very loud noise this will make ur ps3 clean it self automatically with no need to open it and get over the freezing thing
have fun :)

How long do you wait before you turn off your PS3 because in most games if you hit the PS button while the game is loading something or saving to your hard drive it may seem like it froze, but give it a minute and it should go back to normal
