Your internal hard drive may be on its last legs. You might need to replace it with an off-the-shelf consumer laptop-sized (2.5") hard drive. Otherwise, you can access the recovery menu of the PS3 by turning off the console, holding the power button until the unit turns on and then off again, WITHOUT releasing the button until it does so, and then releasing the power button and holding it in again until you here three beeps in a row. Then you are to release the power button, and wait for the repair menu to start up. From there, rebuild the hard drive, and hope that fixes your issue. If it doesn't, take a trip down to your local electronics store and buy a hard drive from them. If you're lucky, they might even be willing to install it for you if you bring your PS3 along with you. Otherwise, it's very easy to install it yourself. Just go to Sony's website and follow their manual on replacing and upgrading a PS3 hard drive.

It seems that your system is having trouble writing data to the HDD. Have you tried switching hard drives with your brother? It can be a corrupt sector or the entire disk. Try to format the disk and try again or switch your hard drive with your brother's or if you have the cash, buy a new hard drive for your ps3. Regards. Hope it helps.

PS: If you try using your brother's hard drive in your PS3 you will have to format it so I suggest you do a backup.

Playstation 3 not playing games but will play blu ray discs


Make sure that your firmware is updated correctly. Also make sure the games are the correct region for the unit you're playing on. You may have an incorrect region setup on the PS3. PS3 games are region locked, either being PAL or NTSC. If the PS3 is set to read PAL (by being set to a region that is PAL, like the UK, Europe, and Japan) it will not read or play an NTSC disc.

Misconfigured or corrupted firmware installations can also cause this problem. Furthermore, pirated games will not play, because they do not have the appropriate security key on the disc.

You can try testing this by creating a new profile on the PS3 and trying to play the games. If you can play them with the new profile, then there is a corruption with the old profile. If you can't play them in the new profile, then it could be the firmware.

Lastly you may have a blown drive. Most PS3 games are dual layer blu ray discs capable of storing large amounts of data. The blu ray drive in the PS3 uses a sequenced dual laser to read the game. If one of the laser emitters has blown, it won't read the game correctly. However, since it doesn't use both emitters to read blu ray movie disks or dvds they'll still play correctly.

I have a latitude XT, and only the 5 and 6 numbers are working. I dont wanna hear, change your keyboard, because when I go in through administrator, everything is fine, only when I log on the default...


It sounds like your default profile might have become corrupted. You can make a new profile and transfer your information to the new profile. But before doing that try scanning your computer for virus's amd malware infections.

If you do try the new profile and plan on transferring your information from one profile to another make sure that the old profile is not password locked. Or transfer the information through the Administrator login.

Best of luck...

Wii's quantum of solace errors goeeting online and single player


This is what I had to do:
After it froze up, I turned off the wii by holding the power button for approx. 10 seconds. Then, I powered it back up and started Quantome of Solace. After loading my profile, instead of selecting 'continue', I selected 'chapter select' and it let me start from the chapter it was freezing on. It did not freeze this time during the intro movie. Hope that helps!!!
