Hi farrellys

If you have to replace the hard drive in your ps3 as long as you use the same psn info meaning your email address and password to log on to the ps3 network the games you have already purchased are saved on the ps3 server all you have to do is download them again you will not be charged anymore money for you have already paid for..Cheers hope this info helps nikki

My ps3 is freezing, is there anything i can do at home to fix this


Yes! You MAY BE able to fix your ps3's problem at home if you follow this guide. You need to RESTORE SYSTEM FILES of your ps3 to correct corrupt data that causes the freezing.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when t turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

Good luck!

Corrupted data on the hard drive.

back up any important files and run the restore to factory settings option.

That will clear the problem.

PS3 freezes when booted up


This sounds like your hard drive might be bad. Try pulling the hard drive out of your PS3 then turn it on and see if it will turn on. If the system turns on then i would say your hard drive definitely needs to be replaced.

Corrupt files


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

Freezes up on downloads and game play


The fastest way to resolve this problem is to do a quick format to your PS3. After that try it again. If it freezes or says it's corrupted again, then you need a new 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.
