Try formatting the mem stick, if youre up to it. there might be a bad file imbedded in the memory

Maybe you could try turning off your PSP and then turning it back on.

My psp freezes after a few minutes then goesoff

ok 1 of the only solutions i can think of is to update ur software try updating to the new version.
if u already did update and thats when it started "cutting out" then find a web site to 'downgrade' it
look on youtube for web sites that can downgrade your psp.

PSP running slow

I'm not sure if there is a VHS menu on normal firmware, but if your running custom most likely the problem is your last update. Here is how to fix:
Click Select->Select CPU Clock XMB->Toggle To Default->Exit Menu

Because your PSP is running on something like 20/10 and lagging real bad it may freeze when you open the menu, if so turn your PSP off by holding the power button up and forcing the shutdown, keep trying until you can get the menu working. It will also not respond to your commands properly, when you click down it will move through like 3 options because of the lag, be patient wait till it lands on CPU Clock XMB and follow the instructions. Happy Gaming!
