    99.9% of the time this is a heat sync problem and your CPU and GPU need to be re-seated. I had the same problem and fixed it. email dwdpcrepair@gmail.com

It's a hard ware problem: either the power supply, hard drive, or likely the motherboard.

You'll have to contact Sony for repair @

1-800-345-SONY

You can try a few of tips here:

Most of them apply to the YLOD problem but they're essentially the same.

Can windows 7 run GTA IV.


Hi,
Running GTA 4 on windows 7 should not be a problem. You just have to run the installer using compatibility mode. Right click on the "setup.exe" then choose Properties. Go to Compatibility tab and tick "run this program in compatibility mode for", choose windows xp sp 3. That should allow you to install GTA 4 on windows 7. Bear in mind that you have to install GfW Live and the C++ 2005 files seperately which can be found in the disk as well. More importantly, make sure that your computer meets the system requirements for the game.
Here it is: System Requirements
Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3 Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8Ghz, AMD Athlon X2 64 2.4Ghz Memory: 1.5GB, 16GB Free Hard Drive Space Video Card: 256MB NVIDIA 7900 / 256MB ATI X1900
Recommended System Requirements
OS: Windows Vista - Service Pack 1 / XP - Service Pack 3 Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz, AMD Phenom X3 2.1Ghz Memory: 2 GB (Windows XP) 2.5 GB (Windows Vista) 18 GB Free Hard Drive Space Video Card: 512MB NVIDIA 8600 / 512MB ATI 3870
After installing the game and you're not able to run it, Try running the main executable file of the game in compatibility mode as well.

Hope this helps.

Uncharted 2 only game that shuts down my 60 GB PS3


It seemed as if you were getting the symptoms of the "blinking red light of doom" but luckily you didn't.And VERY VERY good thinking on the back up (i never thought of it and i almost lost all my data).
I hope your new hdd runs a 5400rpm and NOT 7200rpm.
Facts:
1. A 7200rpm hdd will make system over-heat.

2. System run hotter (and in most cases of red light of doom) are HIGH graphics games such as MW2 & UNCHARTED 2.

3. Systems will last longer and cooler with an external fan that runs off its on power from a power outlet(not run off the power of the ps3!!!!)

I hope I have helped and please feel free to ask any questions GOOO UNCHARTED 2!!

SAVED GAME FOR GTA IV


sorry to hear your game save is corrupt.

while i haven't heart of any save problems with gta 4.... no game is perfect.

If it continually happens with gta 4 and possibly with other games, it could be a sign of hard drive failure.

Hd failure is a common problem with other models.

Just a heads up.

Game stuck in my PS3


Well my system just recently died while I was playing GTA and yeah now my game is stuck as well cause when I turn the system on it stays on for like 3 seconds before turning off and blinks the red light at me, I am not sure if there is a way to get the game out maybe if you open up the PS3 but make sure you don't do that if you still have warranty on the system or it will be void. I am sending my PS3 into Sony and the guy said just make a note that the game is stuck in the system and they will take care of it and fix my system.
