Hi if this is happening with all your games then this points towards the fact that either the cpu or gpu chips are over heating and it wont be long before you get the dreaded red ring of death.

make sure the air vents are clean on your xbox vac them if they are dusty.
dont use the xbox on carpet.
make sure the air can get to the xbox dont have it in small shelf thats surrounded.
dont have the xbox on top of anything else electrical as this will cause it to over heat really quick.

follow the above to check you are not causing it to over heat.

in the end you will get the power light turning red and this indicates damage has been done due to over heating, when this happens you will need to either get it repaired or replace the xbox, if you get it repaired you need to bare in mind it may only last an hour or it could last 6 months with the x clamp repair their is no guarantee on how long the repair will last thats if it can be repaired as not all can.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Ive had a copy of the game since the launch date, and it used to be fine, but recently (last couple months) ive noticed that it seems it takes ages to load up and it crashes after EVERY game - plus, there...


Well, if it's not a problem with the console, it must be the Black Ops CD. Try cleaning the disc, and trying again. (One way to clean the disc is to use a clean cotton cloth) If cleaning the disc doesn't help, it could be because there's some kind of scratch on the CD. If that's the case, you may want to consider buying a new black ops. If you still have the receipt, you could trade it in for a new CD.

Good luck!

It freezes during a game when you die or load a new level


Try cleaning the disc and then cleaning the blu-ray laser using a lens cleaner. What is most likely happening is that the disc cannot be read resulting in your Playstation crashing.

PS3 - Game crash followed by disc read error


The update corrupted your hard drive that's why it's not loading any disc.Yes,Restoring the system will work but it will destroy all your saved game data.Updating the system will not remove the hard disk defect.There is only one solution,Reset it.

Xbox 360 is making grinding noises


H there,

I have made a tutorial for all those people having problems with their discs, such as;
•Dirty Disc Errors
•Games crashing half way through , due to reading problems
•Discs sometimes loading, and sometimes not being recognised
•the classic "OPEN TRAY" problem
•and also glitching FMV or slow loading games (some games are just slow, its normal so be patient)

Please remember to test the disc on another console to ensure you have burnt it correctly. This is so you dont go and adjust the pot when its actually ok.

Disc wont play say to clean i try every thing already wat to do


Hi There, I had a similar problem with Forza 2 a while back the game loaded and I was mid race and the track would disappear and the car would be flying! Then the game would crash and ask for the disc to be cleaned. No matter what I did it always happend. There's a store near me that does "disc resurfacing" It cost me £3 and took less than 2 mins and the game runs fine only now doesn't get played due to Forza 3....Hope this helps

hello dear customer,
i am eltoyosi and am here to help you.
Once you notice your discs wont load firstly ensure the discs are very clean not damp and broken.If they are not faulty then check if the version of the discs are correlating with that of the game.....
I mean if your game is NTSC and the disc is PAL your game might not load this discs.
So make sure the discs playing mode are the same with the games.
thank you.

Dreamcast Loading problem


you can get disks relayered at game stores.
there was a long period where this happened to me.
some games worked for a while, some didnt.
its the dreamcast.
you might wanna get anew power cable or just clear out the dust because that is the main problem with the dreamcast.
try playing with the console upside down
it sounds crazy but it worked for me.

Game loading


  • Confirm the disc is inserted correctly into the PlayStation 2 console (label side should be facing up when the PlayStation 2 console is in the horizontal position).
  • Confirm the disc is clean. To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning CD/DVD discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc. [Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly.]
  • Try playing different CDs, DVDs, and games on the PlayStation 2 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PlayStation 2 console (or a PS oneTM or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices. Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. I do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products[1].
