When i turn on my ps3 it says the hard disk's file system is corrupt and will be restored. once it loads to 100% it goes back to the same screen

you may have a bad hard drive or one that is about to die. instead of letting it restore that way you may want to try this method.....

turn the system off from the back.
turn it back on. (it should be in standby mode now)
press the power button and keep your finger on it till it beeps three times. (its about a second apart.) and turns off.
take your finger off of the power button and press it again. this time keep your finger on it till it beeps twice quickly and take your finger off.
it should tell you to connect a controller with a usb
once u do i'll give u a menu.
select option #3 and let it finish

this option will fix SOME minor software side problems.

if that didn't help you can try reformatting it. go to settings>system settings>restore ps3 systems
once there u can start to reformat your hard drive.


it will erase everything you have on the system. and if u downloaded any games from the psn you can retrieve them under the download management. you don't have to repay for them, just have to redownload them. also you'll be able to maintain your trophies since those are save/stored on sony servers.

before reformatting though, if you can get into your game saves, you should try and save those to your usb flash drive. those you will be lost forever if you format your hard drive. just know that some games won't let you save the save data. game data on the other hand you don't have to since they are way too big in size. you just have to reinstall them when you play those games.

if that didn't help you you have the final option of replacing you hard drive. its an easy job. this site has a step by step guide in replacing your hard drive

I need to change the language to spyro shadow legacy/nintendo ds

Go into game and select one of the saved games if there is one or start a new game. Once Spyro is up and moving around, press start which takes you to the option and at bottom left side there is an option to change language. I did the same mistake and changed language to French, but changed it back to English using above method.

Fall out 3 game keeps freezing

It could be a corrupt game save from way back when you started. Try copying all the game data for Fallout3 onto a memory unit and start again. Although it may take some time to get to where you are up to, once you are there again try and do the mission again. If it works, you know it was a corrupt save.

You could try loading from your first save and see what happens from there but it could be the corrupt file is corrupting the other files too. Remove/Move it from the storage device it is on to another one.

2) Delete the game's save files. To delete any save files you will need to do the following. Scroll along the cross media bar until you reach the 'Game' tab, now scroll up / down the list until you reach the 'Save Data Utility' Enter this and locate the GTA IV / other game name option. Highlight this and press triangle once, and from the context menu select Delete.

3) Disable your Internet connectivity for the PS3. To do this scroll along the cross media bar until you reach the 'Settings' tab, now scroll up / down the list until you reach the 'Network Settings'. Now scroll down to the Internet connection option and press x, now select the disable option. Once this has been done unplug the ethernet cable if you are connecting to the Internet if using this.

4) Disable the console's information board. To do this scroll along the cross media bar until you reach the 'Network' tab, now scroll up / down the list until you reach the 'Information Board', highlight this and press triangle. From the menu select 'Do not display' Press X to confirm this.

8 ) Once this has been done, manually restart you PS3 by holding down the power button for 5 seconds it will beep once and then shut down. Release the power button and re-press it and hold for about 5 seconds. The system will then boot and reset all display settings. You will be prompted to reset your display settings to how you require them.

9) Once restarted please try the game again, you will be prompted to reinstall.
Once the game has started please turn off the following features:

1) The game's auto-save. Press Start, Game, and locate the Auto-save option. Turn this off.

2) Turn off the game's flicker filter. Press Start, Display and locate the Flicker Filter option. Turn this off.

3) Turn off the controller vibration feature. Press Start, Controls and locate the vibration option. Turn this off.

if this fails then you`ll need to call sony and i believe they charge for a fix...

2. At Menu tap the bottom listing (Op...)
3. Tap the top listing until English appears. It goes through a bunch of languages.
4. Then hit the arrow on lower left of screen and you are all set.

Cannot save game in super mario 64 for ds

maybe you're not going to the start and turning it off. when you save everything else and quit turn it off right on the menu or further back. I think this will not answer the question so if no work sorry.
