SOURCE: Games freeze

have you checked that if any of the cooling vents are not blocked or filled with dust? have you checked the temp of the ps3 when it has frozen ?it may just be a software fault you could try to restore it back to factory default settings and see how you get on?also clear the vents with a can of compressed air

SOURCE: My PS3 freezes up shortly after start of game, won't run movies

I believe you may have little or no memory left...
you can upgrade it with a 500 Gb HDD from SATA (2.5' 8or 16" MB Cache make sure it is 5400 RPM ) You can buy it at best buy..
I replaced mine... and it works great now.. when you replace it you can download the software into your external hard drive and transport it back into your ps3..and itll instantly upgrade it for you

After 5 mins of playing game, DVD, or demo games it freezes


Bad news unfortunately. The GPU chip will require resoldering or reballing. Only a few electronic repair agents have this equipment and a select few perform this repair. The freezing problem will eventually become the RROD (Red Ring of Death).

Why does my xbox 360 kepps freezing when i play games?


360's tend to lock up before the "red rings of death". You get this when the system overheats and has problems with the solder coming loose. Mine took a little over a weak before it got the red rings after it kept freezing after a few min.'s of playing.

It could be overheating because the fan is not getting enough air out. try cleaning the console itself outside and using can of compressed air to get any buildup in the vent holes and fan cleared. There are a few FAQS on this site to learn about a few tricks.

feel free to comment if you have any questions. Hope this helped and remember you have a three year waranty on your xbox for the red ring and E74 error!

Sorry but the system you bought was refurbished. Game Stop to me is like a dollar store F them. All they sell is used traded stuff.

Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

Game freezes during game play


I saw that alot when 360 first came out. I'm assuming you bought it right after it was released. Since than microsoft (though they probably won't admit it) has released a few remakes of the system which fix that error. Don't know what to tell you to stop it though. probably check out 360 support pages by microsoft
