Reboot as in wipe the harddrive of the ps3 completely to factory settings? There is an "erase all data" option in the menus that should work. Not sure if it keeps the system updates or not. Make sure to back up any saved files and/or data before the wipe. Hope this helps.

I need to reboot my laptop but i don't know how


Reboot essentially means restarting the computer. This is two types
1. Warm Reboot: where you go to start on windows task bar and choose shut down but when prompted choose restart. This way computer shuts down momentarily and restarts!
2. Cold Reboot: By this means you choose to shut down and again when prompted choose shut down! This makes computer off completely until restart by pressing power button.
Booting is computer Lingo for above procedures!

I can not connect to the Internet. I have WiFi connection but can't do anything else


Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?

Cant get internet connestion


Are you hard wiring it? if so you may need to reboot your modem then start the ps3 back up. Don't unplug from the computer and connect it directly to your PS3 because the modem still has the computer's ip address and it won't recognize the PS3 until you reboot it. If it's a wireless connection, check to see that when you scan for wireless connection that the green wireless LED is blinking, meaning it's searching for a signal. If it's blinking, then try resetting the modem and the wireless router as well and give it another try. If the green light does not blink, then there might be a harware issue with your PS3. Good luck

Okay,i manually setup an internet connection on my PSP but for some reason when i try to get on the internet with it it says:Communication with the server failed. A DNS error has occured (8041040F). I dont...


From what I understand you are trying to get online with your playstation and to do so you want to share the internet connection with your computer but two things you mention make me believe the problem might be one of these two solutions.

First in order to start an online gaming session, at least on Xbox live, you need your own DNS which is a Domain Name Service and unique address associated with your gaming device. Since your computer already is using that unique address which you put in manually it comes back as an error. You don’t mention if you have a router or not but I will assume you do, if this is the case you need to set up your playstation to have the network setup complete automatically which will enable your router to supply the playstation with another address which will be unique to it thus no error when trying to connect to a gaming session. If this fails on the automatic setting you will need to reboot the modem that connects your computer to the internet and then reboot your router with both the computer and the Playstation connected to your router at the same time, the modem will then supply the router with a new DNS and then the router will supply both the computer and the Playstation with a new DNS and its own unique address. Once the router has rebooted get online with your computer to check to see if your router completed its tasks. I f you can get online with your computer then now go back into the Playstation setup and make sure all of the network parameters are set for automatic such as DNS, no proxy, ect.. This should get you online unless you also have a firewall problem.

If you do not have a router, only a modem from your internet company, then you will need to disconnect your computer from the modem, no sharing, connect your playstation directly to the modem, then reboot the modem. All network settings still need to be in the automatic mode in Playstation to work properly. If that still does not work that would suggest your IP gives you a static address and you will need to call them to get your network logon info and then with that info in hand set the playstation up manually with that info.
