Hello,

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck

When you successfully managed to identify your account, you will be shown the reset password page (see screenshot below). Before you proceed to reset your password, carefully check whether this really is your account and whether the email address(es) and mobile phone number(s) listed are ones you can presently access.

If all is well, check the contact methods that apply, then click the Reset Passwordbutton and a password reset code will be sent to the respective email address or mobile phone number.

You will be taken to a page where you can view options for managing your Hotmail account.

Recover a Hijacked Hotmail Account
Hotmail is one of the older free Web-based email services.
Unfortunately, its age and its popularity can make it a target for hackers and other online troublemakers.
If your Hotmail account is hijacked, the hacker may change your password to keep you from logging back in to the account.
Fortunately, Microsoft gives users the opportunity to prove that a hijacked account is really theirs so that changed passwords and stolen accounts can be recovered by their rightful owners.
Attempt to log in to your Hotmail account.
If you receive a message saying that your username or password is incorrect, click the "Forgot Your Password?" link under the password field.
A page will load giving you three options for resetting your password.
Click the "I Think Someone Else Is Using My Windows Live ID" option on the password reset page. Click the "Reset Your Password" link in the instructions that appear.
Enter your Hotmail account address in the "Windows Live ID" field and type the characters that appear in the captcha image in the "Characters" field.
Click "Next" to continue the password reset process.
Select an option for resetting your password when prompted.
If you have a secondary email account included with your Hotmail account, clicking "Email Me a Reset Link" will send a link to that account which lets you reset your password.
Clicking "Security Question" prompts you with the security question you set up previously, allowing you to reset your password after answering correctly.
If neither of these options work for you, click "Customer Support" to contact Hotmail customer support and have your password reset.
Click "Next" after selecting an option.
Enter a new password when you receive access to the password reset screen.
Hotmail recommends that you create a strong password with a combination of letters, numbers, symbols and varying capitalization to make it more difficult for would-be hijackers to guess it.
Run a thorough antivirus and spyware search on your computer to make sure that you don't have a keylogger or other password-theft software installed on your PC
Such software could allow a hacker to gain access to your account again after the password has been reset.
