Sony Playstation 3

Screen freezes at menu stage when warm. Works first time but if you stop it or change games it freezes and you cannot do anything, even turning it down does not help. It is only hooked up to my tv.

You can replace it with any standard notebook computer hard drive. The last part in the link below will cover removing the hard drive from your PS3 if you are not sure on how to do this.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions
