Your hard drive is not being accessed by the other parts of the game, for what ever reason. I've seen this problem a lot! There's a laundry list of reasons why this happens. I can't really determine the specifics of YOUR unit unless I looked at it, which is virtually impossible. The best solution I can offer you is this: While the console is in "stand by" mode, hold down both the power & eject buttons simultaneously. You'll hear a single beep, then a double beep. Once you hear the double beep, release the buttons. This will bring up a six item menu. You'll need to pick option #3, first. Hopefully this will help you with your problem. If it doesn't, you'll need to choose option #6. The draw back of this option is that it will delete all of your saved memory; erasing EVERYTHING! But it may be the only way to keep from having to send your console to the repair shop. You can re-load your downloaded games,demos & trophies from the PlayStation store free of charge. If all else fails, you can contact PSR repairs at www.psr1.com

Asus computer freezing up


Windows vista is a large operational system that caused the very complaints that people were talking about and that is why window 7 came in because it is lighter and faster and takes less resources. But to address your problem sub out the ram memory one at a time to see if there is a difference, quite often reseating the ram will sometimes fix the problem.

Where can i find firmware updates for LG GSA-4163B dual layer burner - believe it to be A106


You can download any available ODD (Optical Disc Drive) updates from http://us.lgservice.com. Click Product Support, click Optical, choose your model number from the list, and click go. Click the Drivers & Software tab. Download the latest version posted (highest number).

The firmware for all recent drives works with Windows. Before running the update, make sure the drive is empty. Close as many programs running the background as you can. Run the downloaded executable file to start the update. Some will automatically start updating the dive and some will require you to push "Upgrade" or "Start". If the firmware doesn't see the drive it was designed for, it will not install.

WARNING: Never update the firmware if the problem you're having is the drive isn't seen by windows, won't write with the included software, or other interface related problems. Unless the firmware specifically states it fixes the problem you are having, firmware updates normally don't fix these types of problems. Trying to update the firmware when there are interface problems can damage the drive's firmware. An error when updating the firmware is usually caused by a problem with the drive interface or there is more than one drive connected to that IDE channel.

IMPORTANT: do not interfere with the drive during the firmware update. If an error occurs during the upgrade process, or the upgrade process is cancelled during this process, damage to the drive can occur. If you experience any problems or have any questions, please contact our LG customer support line toll-free at 1-800-243-0000.
Hope this helps you

If you are using a usb hub disconnect it completely and try connecting your Western Digital directly to a usb port on your laptop. If that doesn't work try booting into safe mode and see if it shows up then. If it works in safe mode a recent update to your virus program or another program could be blocking it. Hope I was of some help , Thanks for using FixYa

WHEN I TURN MY PS3 ON THERE IS A SCREEN ABOUT INSTALLING A UPDATE I WAS AWARE OF IT BUT IT JUST STAYS ON THER AND WHEN I TRY TO CANCEL IT IT JUST FREEZES UP THEN THE PROCESS STARTS ALL OVER PLEASE...


it freezes because your canceling the update its writeing data to the ps3. it is always bad to cancel a install in the middle of it on anything. ps3's usualy take a rediculous amount of time to download and install updates. i say start the update then leave it alone for a while if it takes more than 24 hours you deffinitly got a problem or years worth of updates to install

Good Luck
