In most cases, green or pink glitches in the display are caused by an overheating graphics chip. dust is the most common cause of this overheating. if there's no more warranty on the PS3 or you don't care about warranty, you can try opening the device and remove as much dust and what not, preferably with an airduster or a dry anti-static cloth. if the dust is stuck to the electronics, you can try by putting something like methyl-alcohol on the cloth and trying again. try to avoid touching of electronic contacts.
If this doesn't work, it may mean that the motherboard is damaged (for instance, a blown resistor/capacitor) and in this case, it's cheaper to replace the whole playstation instead of trying to repair.

    My GTA SAN ANDREAS gta_sa.exe has stopped working

    you have installed mods: when are you installing mods, you are installing hidden files too. With too much hidden files, the game crashed. there is only one way to delete this hidden files so you can play gta sa again is reinstall windows. then you have no problems.
    you have installed no mods: I don't know how to solve this. maby you can try to do this: Click start>Right click "my computer">Properties>Advanced> Under performance hit 'settings'>Data execution Prevention> hit "turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select".
    Hit Add, browse to your cracked .exe in the SA folder. Hit Apply. You should have to restart.

    Now GTA should run.
