Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When I have been plying Oblivion or RFoM or Assassins Creed sometimes i get black spikes over the player i controled or over the environment what is it?
SOURCE: my assassins creed wont load????
if no games load or play back up your save data and try a system restore if that doesn't work u need to call sony if under warranty and they ill probably send u another ps3 within 7 days if not under warranty check out this link

SOURCE: my assassins creed wont work
my copy of assasins creed would not load either so i got a replacment copy of the game which did not work either, got in contact with the store i got it from and they tell me that they have had a lot of the same complaints and there seems to be a problem on the 40gb version of the ps3 and it is unable to play this game, not really willing to part with 300 quid for a console that decides to play some games and not others so i think i'll be taking my ps3 back and getting a refund or maybe an xbox360.

ive had they same problem with my ps3 and i decided to restart the whole hard drive, not reformat the system, beware restarting the whole hard drive will erase all memory in the system.
hope this helps

Oh dear, i'm afraid to say you've got one of the 'fatal' error codes. The error you're encountering means there is a major problem with the blu-ray drive (you're PS3 is pretty much shot)...
The only thing you can do is ring Sony's tech support and arrange for a replacement console. If you are still under their one year warranty, you will get a replacement console free of charge
or if your console still works just dont play that game
if it keeps freezeing its becuse of the blu-ray driver :( you would need to try setting it to factory def's or if that does'nt work try rolling back the firmware upgrades........or just buy a xbox 360..

There is a major problem occuring right across the board at this very moment with the PSN Network. Some consoles are not synching properly due to an internal clock error and causing problems exactly like you describe.
For a full breakdown please see this FixYa Tip.
If the solution helps, please leave a vote for it. Thanks.

try updating firmware or doing hard reset.
this is a last resort Sony support recommends.
Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves! Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
Hopefully this will solve your freezing problems.
Problems/symptons that this appears to have resolved:
-freezing when doing anything
-no harddrive activity
-freezing when trying to use onboard keyboard or bringing up keyboard
-game/movie disc freezes system
