You should first check your drive capacity, your RAM and the game minimum memory requirement. reformatting your computer should always be your last option. you need to have the installation disk for your fresh start.

Try playing a game not online.

If it freezes while you ARE NOT online:

This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. There are many videos on youtube if you would like to do it yourself (I would advise you not to). I recommend that you find a technician who has experience. There are many things that can go wrong.

If you do, you must disassemble your drive and take out the laser to see exactly which laser you will need to purchase.

If you can play your games OFFLINE just fine, then you may have a hard drive problem. You will need to try the above and then repost with your new findings.

Console freezes


hey there, I would open the Xbox 360 dashboard, then go to memory, and press Y on the hard drive to open the "Device Options" menu. Then press the following sequence of buttons: X, X, LB, RB, X, X. You will be asked if you want to perform maintenance on your hard drive and delete all patches.select yes I hope this helps

Copying sims2 game to an external hard drive


I suggest try playing the game on a different computer. This usually happens when you play the game on a computer that does not meet the games system requirement. Most probably the specifications of this computer is lower than the computer you originally play the game with.
