Ok, this unfortunately means that your PS3 software has become corrupt. The only way to fix this is to completely restore it. The only problem with this is you will lose all of your saved games.
Follow these simple steps :-

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later then beep once more and turn back off into standby. Release the power button

Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep as soon as you press it, then 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. Let go of the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via the USB and press the PS button. Do this and then move onto the next step.

Step 5. A menu will load with 6 options. Choose option 5 "Restore PS3 System". Go through all the prompts and accept everything. This will format your hard drive and replace the PS3 operating system. When the PS3 next restarts it should all be back to normal.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Please try to do the following to boot your pc to safe mode with networking:

You must press F8 before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press F8 after the Windows logo appears, the Advanced Boot Options menu does not appear on the screen.

Hi guys, during upgrade I did something wrong. So, now I have on screen of my tab logos of pc and mobile with triangle in between. No charging, non responding, no hard reset available. Please, help...


Have you tried the hard reset? Try these instructions for a hard reset:

1. With the device off, press and hold Volume Up and Power.
2. Release the Power button when you see the Samsung logo, but continue to hold Volume Up until the recovery screen appears.
3. Use the Volume buttons to navigate the menu and select wipe data / factory reset. Press Home to choose the selection.
4. Press Volume Up continue.
The Galaxy Tab should then go through the hard reset process.

Yeah so about 3 weeks ago, my Dell D600 which is running XP Professional SP3, 2gb ram, an internal bluetooth, and using a usb wireless adapter, started to freeze at completly spontanious times. Everything...


Hi Chad,

It sounds like it could be 1 of 2 issues either the memory or your hard drive may be failing.

Please do the following:

Turn on the computer. When the DELL logo appears, press immediately. If you wait too long and the Microsoft Windows logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Windows desktop. Then shut down your computer and try again.

When the boot device list appears, highlight Diagnostics and press .

Please choose the express test and post the results.

Ipod nano 1st generation trouble! help!


Sounds like a corrupt hard drive.

put it into disk mode

  1. Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
  2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Find it in "my computer", right click it and select format. Choose the FAT32 option and hit OK.

Once its done, restart your computer and plug in your pod. Start itunes and it should automatically reinstall the ipod firmware.

Sound but No Picture


Perhaps your remote is set to video recorder?  Try that first, and if no response, try calling up a menu on your TV and look for the Picture Settings.
Good Luck.
