Are you sure your firmware is updated? It may be just a simple case of updating it. Read the 5.00 M33 installation guide.

My ps3 wont play the game automatically when a disc is inserted. it goes to a multimedia menu when it comes on


Typically ps3s do not launch straight into the game. You do have to go through the menu and select the games portion, and then the game disc. This should launch your game. I have to do it every time I want to play a game.

Wont play when i insert disks only the games on there


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu.

I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

My ps3 won't play ps3 games anymore. I was playing lego batman and then the game froze. so I turned off the ps3. I turned it on again and the game icon didn't show up anymore. I tried several games and...


I had the same issue. I had to send it to PSR Repairs to have it checked out. They ended up replacing the hard drive & the laser lens. According to them, both those components contributed to the freezing up & inability to turn back on. Before I sent it in, I was able to get it to turn back on by holding down both the power button & eject button simultainiously. Lie it beep once, then double beep... Once you hear the double beep, release both buttons. A menu will come up giving you 6 options. Try option 3 first! you wont lose any saved items with this option. If that doesn't work, you will need to use option 6. This will delete ALL of your saved items, but there's a chance that you may not have to have your console repaired. You can retrieve trophies, games & demos from the PlayStation Store. Good luck! If I can be of further help, comment me back under this heading!

Tony hawk project 8 wont load in psp


it might be that you need to update your firmware.

as newer games come out, they require features unlocked in the PSP.
the update of the PSP firmware usually lets you play newer software.

if the PSP loads the disk ok, goto the games XMB menu, and goto the option below UMB Disc.
It should say something like PSP™ Update ver. #.##

Full screen


What games do you play?
In some internet games you can press F11 for full screen.
Though in most games you have to go through their menu's to get full screen.
In windows the default keystroke for fullscreen in Alt, Enter pressed together.
Though that is not a guarantee either.
Generally how to get full-screen is different from game to game in some sort of settings menu.
For instance I play Last Chaos online and it is automatically full-screen.
When I played runescape online I had to select full-screen at the log in screen.

Oh I see. It might be a game problem. Do you have any other games installed on your laptop? How about try to play a different game and check if you can see Menus. Another possibility is that the game requires a high end type video card (high video memory). Since your laptop uses built-in video card, the game wont run as it should due to system requirement failure.
