Why Does YouTube Keep Stopping on my ps3

The spinning circle is the video trying to load. This could be due to low internet speed or bad wi-fi strength. Try pausing the video. If you see the grey bar at the bottom let it load for a bit before un-pausing the video. Hope that helps

Hi, I just had my system restored with the advice you guys gave me so thanks so much for that. However, when I go into my 'inbox' the circle just keeps spinning and I can't go any further. I want to go...

do a speed test
to confirm if your speed has been limited for exceeding your limit
After the restore you may have had windows do a system update download in the background
And had it use your limit up

Why does my computer take so long to restart?

There are SO Many possible factors causing slowdowns.
Start with checking the free space on your hard drive. You need some wiggle room to navigate and 25% free is recommended.
Defragment your hard drive. (I like the free Defraggler software better than Windows on feature.) this will take some time so run it overnight.
You may have background programs running. You do not need this--they will kick in when needed, and really slow you down.
For WIN 7 & Vista click Start and type in <msconfig> without the hentrax to bring up the System configuration window.
Click on Startup and uncheck everything except your antivirus (and something like SKYPE if you want it to kick in when you boot up). Apply, OK and Reboot. Check the box on the little window that appears i order to make it gone.
See if your fans are clogged with dust. It is very important to stick a pencil or something between the blades when spraying canned air to keep them from spinning.
Doing some or all of these should give you lightning speed! Hope this helps.

The little circle by the cursor on Windows 7 keeps spinning for no reason. How do I stop this?

the circle means that a background task is using a lot of system resource to see what using up ur system resource u can open ur task manager by using ctrl+del+alt and select start task manager and select processes and see which process is using most of ur memory and cpu cycle and that is what causing u to see the circle... if it is not a critical process u can kill r restart it...if u dont know if its critical process google it.

I crashed my Apache onto a table and when I try to fly it, It keeps spinning out of control. To my knowledge I don't see anything broken. It spins to the right. Please help! thanks!!!

It sounds like your tail rotor is acting up or missing. It keeps your Helicopter from flying in circles.

Helicopter keeps spinning in circles and won't lift.

There is a "trim button" on the controller. Ex: if the helicopter is spinning left, press the "R" trim button repeatedly. Takes a little practice to get it down to flying with out hitting anything. Good luck.
