Xbox 360 locks up. what causes my xbox game the hobbit to freeze in story mode? when the story completes it locks up and the screen turns black, I shut it down and when restarted it keeps repeating


Is this the only game affected? Do all your other games play through? You can try to play the game under a different profile. Sometimes game saves get corrupted. That is why they were telling you to purge the hard drive. You can just delete the game saves for this game.

A few days ago my Playstation began freezing midgame while playing NBA 2k11. Now when I turn it on, all of the icons such as game, network, playstation network, friends, music, etc are on the home screen...


Hi mttwlsn16,

If you noticed that system recently freezes up, it migth be overheating or full of dust. There are several ways on how to check the issue, either you clean the system or place it in a cool area. Here are some ways to troubleshoot the problem.

1. Turn off the system completely then disconnect it from the power outlet. Press and hold down the power button for 15-20 seconds. Try to restart the system now. If still has the same problem proceed to step 2.

2 .Try to Unplug and replug all the cables.

3 .Take out the hard-drive, and put it back in after your console has been started up.

4. Make sure that you have at least 60% of the hard drive space free.

5. Clean your game discs with a micro-fiber cloth.

6. Clean the ps3 from dust. You can Use a micro-fiber cloth and use vacuum accessories to clean the dust from the grills and fans.

Alternative solution to remove the dust:
--> turn off the system by switching it off from the back. Please make sure that there's no inserted disc on the system.
--> Now hold the eject button and while holding it try to switch it back on. Fan will run for about 20-30 seconds and it will clean up the dust.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Lockup problem. dvd, netflix can play all day but as soon as i play a game it freezes. end of my rope.


Before you set to fix the PS3 game
freeze, make sure that your console fan is blowing enough air to the inside to
keep it cool. If there's heating, then the fan is unable to blow air and the
problem is due to heating of console.
Deleting unnecessary files like the demos you no longer need on the hard drive
solves the issue. For games to play smooth without freezing, you hard drive is
supposed to have minimum 5% free space. The more free space on the hard drive,
the rare will be the chances of freezing. Besides hard drive, heat transfer

compound dries with time and becomes the cause of this particular problem.
Replace the old dried up heat sinks with the new ones, there are fair chances
that your PS3 will start working fine.
PlayStation 3 repair guide is very helpful resource material if you are doing
fix with the console. Read the Do and Don't rules before doing any thing with
your console otherwise you could end up making it dead. For example, if you are
to clean the fan of the console, then you must follow the exact directions given
in the guide. Don't presume that your console can not be repair at home and is
always supposed to be taken to Sony center. You can do it your self as there's
plenty of information available on the internet about fixing PS3 game freeze.

My laptop freezes every time when i play a game. after 10-15 while playing game it freezes


hi.

Change your operating system to windows xp. update Chipset drivers, Graphics drivers and make your computer have a nice air flow by cleaning inside where the fan is. use a powerfull air blower when laptop is powered off and without battery..

dont put too many information on your hard drive.

Leave a space of a bout 15GB free space.

Your games will never crash again.

good luck

Hard drive spins, but computer and screen don't boot


Hello,
I am not sure if I have a solutions more so than a suggestion. I have done many notebook repairs and one thing that I make sure my techs do is NOT to shock the motherboard (Static, ESD) A simple shock can destroy the video, sound, wireless, and even the hard drive controller. I would check with the company that replaced your LCD and ask if they had trouble with your notebook after the install. Minus the LCD, my first guess would have been to upgrade your memory (maybe), defrag your hard drive and test parts on a good pc. Worst case: replace the motherboard or replace the notebook.

Good Luck

Freezes, hot, green screen


You need to have the problem fixed by Xbox itself. This is a hardware issue and cannot be fixed manually. You might have to spend some money but if you want to play games it's a risk your going to have to take. Try to not turn your system on or off as this may damage it even more or even fry the hardware in it.
