    My Xbox 360 is freezing up right when it starts trying to sign me into xbox live. Everytime after it has left the screen that says "Xbox 360" it has frozen. The Screen goes fuzzy and I can't see what is going on.

I have a playstation 1 game that i play on my 3, and it keeps freezing at a certain point, and i know that its the game. but i was wondering if i could save it to a certain memory card and play it on a old...

Unfortunetly unless you were to find the game in the PSN store then you could play it without freezing but since PS3 doesnt support memory cards you won't be able to do that. Its really too bad I know how you feel when you data ends up useless because of a glitchy old game :C

Freezing up

Remove the Hard drive from the unit and try to play a game without it. if it continues to freeze, this will confirm a major issue that concerns the internal connections to the main board and hard drive bay. This will need to be repaired by Microsoft.

If the removal of the hard drive produces positive results, just replace the old hard drive with a new.

160gb ps3 won't play games or bluray discs

Your PS3 may not be freezing entirely. Look in the top right hand corner of the screen, if the loading sphere is there you've nothing to worry about, and I would reccomend just waiting it out (it unfreezes). If it is not there it is a legitimate freeze and would reccomend sending it off and/or updating the system firmware.

Freezing up

Its basically RRoD, your only options are to send it to Microsoft or fix it yourself. If your gonna fix it yourself, adhere 1983 or earlier copper pennies to the ram chips and try tightening or loosening the black screws on the bottom frame, located under the x-clamps, it may take some fine tuning but you may also find that you'll have to completely remove the black screws.
Note: Use reusable adhesive to adhere the pennies to the ram chips and to each other.

Game freeze

Try playing the game without your HD hooked up if the game still freezes this is a known problem and will need to be replaced. Mine started to do this just shortly after i played assasins creed and about a week after i got the dreaded red ring of death. If your system doesnt freeze after you play it without your HD in then you should be fine just delete all the saved files off your HD and start fresh.
