The problem you have listed here could be related to heat fault and you can try this workaround in case your PS3 turns on for few seconds with 3 beeps and then goes off, below is the PS3 recovery mode solution you can try

To do it, when PS3 is on standby, hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps.

If it does go onto the video output screen, turn it off again using the
power button and once its back on standby, try holding the power again
until you hear the double beep.

Check if you see this screen and try to do a system restore (note: you will lose your profile data here, since currently you do not have option to take a backup)

else a better option could be to give the ps3 console to Sony for servicing in case you are under warranty period, however they would not repair your device and send it back to you, they send you a refurbished device in replacement to your console

About the disc you have inside could probably be lost, Sony does day that they would send you your COD: MW2 disc separately, however you cannot trust them, over it you would also stand to lose all your profile data

Older-model Toshiba TV shuts off by itself

There is a large sand filled resistor on the main board close to where the power cord attaches that cracks. This will stop power until it cools enough to make the connection then heats up rapidly to open it again. It may be worth the trouble if you're handy with a soldering gun and can get the back off the TV. If not then I'd consider getting a flat screen.

Have you tried reinstalling the game? If not, that may help.
If it doesn't, please follow my guide for reinstalling your graphics drivers here:
If this also doesn't fix your problem, you can try to restore to a restore point before the problem started using Windows system restore (it's in Control Panel and in Help and Support)
If that also doesn't fix the problem, all you can do is reinstall Windows. This will cause you to lose all your programs and data, and I'm not sure it will work, but I can give you a walkthrough, if you wish.
