When there's console talk going on, someone is bound to bring up the subject of the Red Ring'o'Death syndrome of the Xbox 360. There's been a lot of talk about how Microsoft almost never delivers actual new consoles and instead patches old ones up. And it's fairly known that high hardware failure rates are one of the main issues users have with the Microsoft game console.

But Microsoft is not alone in not addressing
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); quickly and professionally all the problems that are related to its consoles. Rumors have been cropping up recently, especially after the latest firmware upgrade, that the PlayStation 3 console from Sony is beginning to develop a hardware failure syndrome. The error code associated with it is 80010514. But Sony doesn't yet acknowledge the existence of this particular error.

The people at Game Revolver managed to reproduce the error on their game console. They seem to believe that the error code means one of two things, either a faulty sector on the internal hard drive or a faulty installation of software/firmware. Apparently, a hard drive issue might be generating the second possible explanation, if a firmware is attempted and the bad sector gets written over.

The fact that the console affected by the error could still play DVD and Blu-ray movies without problems gives even more truth to the theory that it can all be a symptom of a defective firmware update generated by way of a faulty internal drive in the PS3.

The usual steps of dusting off your console and preventing any possible overheating apply, along with having a stable connection when attempting the firmware update.

What's strange is that Sony technical staff doesn't seem to be aware of any error code 80010514. A Sony spokesman told Eurogamer: "I've spoken to our Customer Services department and they aren't aware of this issue with the PS3

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Windows failed to start

It may take you quite a while to figure out how to solve this problem from trial and error. It will take less time if you:

1. Take the hard drive (HD) out of the PC
2. Attach it to an external drive case
3. Attach this to another PC and remove all of your DATA and store it external to the HD
4. Restore the system from scratch using Toshiba's restore tools
5. Put data back on.

Error code 80010514

This is caused by the PS3 believing it has the wrong firmware. If you have recently updated, make sure you installed the update by directly downloading it onto your PS3 and not by disc or other method. If you attempt to download and install through the PS3 and still have this error consider contacting Sony's customer service.

PS3 "an error has occurred during the start operation" (80010514)

Sounds like a problem with your blu-ray drive.

Try playing a blu-ray movie and a dvd.

Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.

PS3 error 80010514

The solution to this error "80010514" is to restore the file system. you have to turn off the ps3. Then press and hold the powr button until it turns off again. Then do the same thing but this time it will make a beep, then it will make a double beep, and as soon as the ps3 makes a double beep release it. Its going to bring up a menu and make sure you press number 3 which is restoring file system. I would recommend going to this webpage which explains everything in better details
