I'm suspecting there is an overheating problem.
Try to open the case and place a room fan blowing on the components and mother board.
Even if it helps, you still need to take the computer to a repair shop, because the problem will only get worse.

If that doesn't help then try repairing the operating system, recover it or reinstalling it.

Do you keep the temporary files and cookies cleared? It is important to clear them out often, also run a defrag. You can also try a scan that will scan for and fix all errors in your system tools.
Hope this helps

Games stalls


It's a problem with the game itself not your PS3. Some people never have a freeze up others it happens often. I actually didn't finish playing the game because it happened so often. The only thing that you can try is doing whatever caused the freeze a different way if that makes sense. Otherwise i'd recommend Uncharted 2 which I had no problems with.

During online game play-screen freezes after playing a game or two?TW2007


When you say the screen freezes, do you mean the entire computer freeze, forcing you to reboot it? Or did the game freeze, and you're able to ALT+TAB or CTRL+ALT+DELETE your way out of the program?
If the whole computer froze, it's likely to be a heat-related problem on your CPU or GPU. You can check your temperature using several utilities, such as Speedfan or Everest, or very likely in your BIOS as well. Different CPUs have different overheating temperatures, but usually they shouldn't be above 80 degrees C at extreme load times.
If it's above that, try cleaning your fan using a can of compressed air (You can buy that at any computer shop), moving your cables inside your computer for better air flow, or (as a last resort) open the side of your computer case.
If it's only the game that froze, and not the whole computer, you could check your graphics drivers, or check for any patches for the game itself.

Microstoft live cam freezes


Normal 0 There are a number of things that can cause the camera to freeze up the computer or the camera.
First I’d check to see how much memory is installed in the computer. It takes additional memory to operate the camera.
Hope this helps. Bud

I would check the Ram and CPU. If you can swap the ram you have with good ram, or if you have more than one stick of ram in there take one out at a time to see if thats the problem. Next go into bios and check the CPU temperature after you have been running your computer for a while. The problem with diagnosing this problem is how much time in between freezes. 18 times in 6 months makes it hard to diagnose, because you won't know if you fixed the problem unless it freezes again after you changed something, and even if it does freeze again it could be because of an entirely different problem.

Continues to freeze


It sounds like the temp sensor isn't working properly and letting the compressor run all the time till it freezes. If you are "handy" you can replace the temp sensor. Parts are available online at different websites like repairclinic.com or partselect.com, etc.
