PS3 speed bump

I have a non flat screen 36'' monster T.V and even that it`s 5 yrs old it still works as if it`s new.
Anyways i have a PS3 and when things are starting to move real fast in the game i see a skip,like the kind you see in your gaming pc when it`s straining for ram to fill the frame rate.
I don`t know if it`s my Tv lagging on it,or the Vid Card in my PS3 is going bad.
It only happens when the action is real heavy,but then it`s gone in a blink of an eye,is this normal?

Bought GT5 for ps3 when inserted ps3 says it needs update but update keeps coming up wth error 80710723. Any one know why this is? How can i get my disk to play

I had the same problem and tried unplugging and restarting the modem and router several times as was suggested by others. Nothing worked. Finally, i disconnected my Logitech steering wheel from the game console, loaded the game using the regular controller and the upload worked fine! If you use a steering wheel or other non-standard controller, give this a try.

Viewsonic vx2265wm screen with the PS3

I have the same problem! I'm using the HDMI-DVI cable that came with the monitor because it lacks an actual HDMI port. DVI is the big port with the grid, right? Anyways, is there a way to put monitor Drivers on the PS3? The monitor doesn't have a menu so I can't manually resize. Also, LittleBigPlanet automatically splits like 720p whenever I play it.

Godfather 2 does not play on my ps3 - freezes at title screen

Try to RESTORE FILE SYSTEM on your ps3.
Follow this guide,


1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when it turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

Res evil 5 no load.

I think the problem is the PS3's HDD. I "upgraded" my HDD about a year and a half ago, and had no problems until now. I can't seem to install anything, games or demos. But the PS3 can read the disk just fine, even play games just fine. I would see if swapping the HDD does anything.

Gran Tourismo 5 problem

Ensure PS3 is up to date, V.2.41. Also GT5 Prolouge Spec 2 should be intalled. This should clear any bugs in the system and sort GT5. A new update for GT5 is out on the 1st August.
