Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
My ps3 works fine but i have two profiles. when i try to go on my second profile the ps3 freezes on the loading screen. i was wondering if anyone knew how i could solve this problem. sometimes when i turn off the system and turn it back on it works but most of the time it just freezes again
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.

compressed air ?! well, i guess it must have danified something in your hardware..... try changing your Hard Disk (must be a Sata 2,5'' 5400rpm). else, you should take it to a support centre for verify possibly hardware damage .
