If you were to get a virus that only means you have a hacker friend with way to much time on there hands. you have a better chance to be hit with lighting 3 times in a row and then winning the lottery 2 times in a row.

My ps3 keeps freezing during games


Problem: Your Playstation 3 console is freezing during gameplay. There are usually two problems that would cause your Playstation 3 to freeze during

gameplay. I will start with the most common problem:

1. The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:

2. Overheating. This is less common. If your PS3 freezes and you shut it off and back on and it comes on ok, it's probably not overheating. If heat is the problem, it will freeze right away if you turn it back on right away without giving it time to cool off. If it turns on OK with no problem and doesn't immediately freeze up, the laser is your issue. If you turn it back on and it freezes right away, your PS3 may be overheating.

If your PS3 is overheating, the best thing to do is to make sure you do not keep it in an enclosed area. Playstation 3 systems and XBox 360 systems run very hot. You must keep it in the open so it gets as much cool air as possible! You can also upgrade the fan inside of your Playstation 3 with the Whisper Fan which increases cooling. You can also find it at the following website:

What causes the ps3 to freeze


A lot of things can cause it to freeze, if it has been jarred a lot it might have knocked something loose, or more likely it is overheating. Also if you have installed a lot of demos or other programs it can cause the operating system to become corrupt.

Ps3 is freezing i am in the process of doing a full restore will this help??


I can, it depends on what's causing your issue. Freezing is usually caused by heat and or a failing blu-ray drive. After it's done restoring take the PS3 outside and spray the vents with compressed air.

Let me know if you still are experiencing freezing after that.

My playstation 3 is freezing up after me playing a modern warfare online after every match it freezes up out of know where?? can you help?


Freezing up is caused by overheating and it is not normally anything to do with where it is placed but internal overheating.

If you stop the heat it will work for you, to do this use a good guide or send it back in to be fixed.

Playstation 3 keeps freezing


The only thing i can think of here is either you might need to dust of your PS3 console around the area of the fan (right side) or that the disc that freezes up might be scratched or need cleaning.

Upgrade to the newest firmware, since 3.0 had some freezing issues with some games, if your internet connection is slow it would also cause it to freeze up

My playstation freeze sometimes, what do I do?


Take a can of air and blow some air into the dvd drive. If there is any dust or specs of dirt on the laser it could cause freeze ups to happen.

Also a laser going weak after alot of use will start to freeze up as well cause it can't read the data quick enough so then you would need to get another laser for your drive but you can get them off of Ebay for fairly cheap.
