Dear, before you get in touch with Sony technical support you may want to try to use the PS3 recovery options. The PS3 stores a copy of firmware drivers on the hard-drive and will reload any corrupt files. To access the recovery menu, do this: Make sure the PS3 is turned off Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off. When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two beeps. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try) It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable, Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu. Be aware that you may lose all of your previously saved data (NOT trophies, they're stored online so don't worry).

Yes it will delete all your saved data.

You want to keep the data, so you need an external storage device (memory card, flash drive and so on). Copy the data on the device. If anything happens to the PS3, you still have your data on the device. When you restore the PS3, you can put back the data.

Keep us posted.

I just bought CoD Mw2, the installation went without any problems, but whenever I try to start the game; I get to the start menu and then the screen freezes, this happens to both single- and multiplayer....


Yes. This happens everytime. Here's a secret/glitch/whatever: when it starts, dont click anything. wait for the game to load up to the main menu. For example in Single player: just leave the keyboard/mouse. wait for all the short clips to play. after you get to the main menu (Spec Ops; Campaign; Multiplayer)Use your arrow keys to choose which. For example: I want spec ops. I just hit the left arrow key once. It might still freeze, but after awhile, it will be highlighted/selected/whatever. hit enter. then wait for it to load. then keep repeating these steps on what level/difficulty. then after you play a game, everything will go back to normal unless you quit again. That's all. Plz rate me.
