Hello,

"When the system is not booting up properly the PS2 system shuts off, the PS2 system has possibly over heated. This may be caused by poor ventilation or the vents may be blocked."

"If this happens:



• Check to see if the vents are blocked. If the vents are dusty, vacuum the vents to remove the dust.


• If the PS2 system is in an enclosed area like a bookshelf or entertainment center, move it to a more open area.


• Leave the PS2 system off for 30 minutes to let it cool down.


• If you continue to have issues, you will have to send the system in for service."

I have HP Computer. Pulled out keyboard cable from tower When I put it back into my HP tower the keyboard wont work.


If you have an older computer, the connection could be ps/2. The current standard connector is usb which is hot pluggable. Older connectors are not hot pluggable which means they are only detected during the boot process. Not a problem, all you have to do is reboot the computer and the keyboard should work. Note: usb is rectangular, ps/2 is round.

How to jailbreak your ps3 (backup and play homebrew games)


How to jailbreak PS3(PlayStation 3)? chips available at www.ndsireland.webs.com

Follow the complete step by step guide posted below to jailbreak your PlayStation 3 to enable you to create backups of original discs.
Pre-requisites are as follows:
* Any (FAT or SLIM) PlayStation 3 Console running firmware 3.41 or above.
* PS Jailbreak USB Modchip.
* An external USB drive formatted to FAT32 with the "Backup Manager" file on it which you can download from here.
* Original disc of any PS3 game which you want to backup.
Step 1: Power off your console and make sure that there isn't any disc in the Blu-ray drive.
For the SLIM Model: Remove the power chord before plugging in the USB.
For the FAT model: Turn off the power switch found at the backside of the console.

Step 2: Now insert the USB based PS Jailbreak Modchip to any USB port of your choice on the console. Once the USB is in place, Power ON the console and immediately press the "Eject" button. There should now be two LEDs turned-on on the USB as the console is loading.
If the LED light on the USB turns green, you are good to go as the PS Jailbreak has been successfully loaded.
If the LED turns red, then it means that the PS Jailbreak Modchip didn't load successfully. This usually happens when the Power and Eject button sequence wasn't performed properly. Start from Step 1 again if you end up having the red light.
Step 3: Once the console has finished booting up with the PS Jailbreak Modchip, plug-in the external USB storage device which has the "Backup Manager" setup to the console's USB port.
Step 4: Now navigate to the "Game Menu" and select the option "Install Package Files" and then select "manager.pkg" file. This will basically install the "Backup Manager" application that you download earlier to your hard drive.
Step 5: When the "manager.pkg" file is done loading, scroll all the way down in the "Game Menu" and there you should see a new application called "Backup Manager", run it.
Step 6: Now we're in the Backup Manager app. Insert the game in the console's optical drive which you want to backup. Press "O" and you will be asked where to make the backup, on the internal HDD or the external storage source connected via USB. This process is further elaborated by the following screenshots.
Step 7: In order to play a game via the backup you just made, insert any original game disc into your console (To emulate the loading process), run "Backup Manager" in the "Game Menu". Press "X" to play the selected backup game.
Step 8: Now you will be taken back to the main menu. In the "Game Menu" you will see the game which you have backed up. Now you can select the game, and run it without having the disc in the console's drive.
Oh and you must make sure that the PS Jailbreak USB Modchip is connected to your console at all the times when you are playing the games via backups.

Ps vita Lego Mega Pack


C1-2858-3 is a "Bad Plug-In" Error (which is a programming files the game uses to be able to display correctly on your PSV) You have to disable one of them because obviously it is not working correctly. This is how. (Reset your Vita first) then:

1.click on your game
2.now start your game, but while it is loading in the initial game loading screen hold R (Right Trigger)
3.this will bring up your recovery screen (text only).
4. go to "Plug-Ins" section, click on it, find the plug-in that is "enabled" and disable it by clicking on it.
5.now go back out all the way, and re-start your game. it should work now.

Cant pair bigben controller to ps3. Theres no where to put usb cable into it


Bigben controller and ps3
i had this problem with bigben mega pack bought with ps3 nov08
the problem is caused i find that the sony wireless controller supplied
has been already allocated as number 1 controller, this has to be changed while the bigben matches
the FIX:
boot the machine with sony controller and go into
settings\accessory settings\reassign controllers\ and re-assign the sony as number 3
(use left stick to move numbers up/down)
plug in the bigben receiver unit into a usb slot and then switch on the bigben
now the receiver light should now stop flashing and the bigben now has a single light agains number 1
go again into re-assign controllers and change the bigben to number 2
then re-assign the sony controller from number 3 to number 1
close down system
re-boot using the sony PS button (the bigben PS button does not boot PS3)
the sony should now be indicating that it is again number 1
the bigben receiver unit should have a steady red light but
the bigben will have all the lights flashing - click the PS button and they will stop
it now should only showing one light next to number 2, so is assigned as number 2 conroller
thats it
'
Note: I wanted to use 2 controllers for the game 'littlebigplanet'
Now if the two controllers are on, the game asks to assign a profile for the
other controller when it opens, so then you choose another user (that u have created)
Then another rag doll drops into the pod that is controlled only by the bigben (user2)

I want to change keyboards


Hi Richard,
most enhanced keyboards need a specific driver to run.
Go to the manufacturers website to download the driver. or search on Google.
You might also have to enter BIOS (accessed when the computer is booting..look for a message that tells you how to get into BIOS, or look in your user manual). Often it can be accessed by pressing the DELETE or F1 key just after you power up. The option in BIOS you may have to change is something like "enable Legacy support for USB".
Have you tried looking in the Dell support website? As you just recently(?) bought this, you can ring up Dell support centre and ask them to help.
Cheers,
Steve

Keyboard, mouse problem


Assuming that your keyboard stops working when its on (same for mouse) then it means your machine will be frozen
  1. Try to give it time (around 3 mins) without doing anything letting it resolve the issue the keyboard should work on later. If this solve your problem then your computer is just slow bcoz of a virus, too many programs to load at start up, new software or hardware update.
  2. Try using a different keyboard when yopu boot up preferably a PS/2 keyboard,if this one works well then its means you nmeed to load new drivers for your keyboard and mouse
  3. Also try running chkdsk to clear your harddrive for errors.
