First check the internet connection to make sure it's still operating properly. Also check the wireless signal strength. Low signal can lead to slow downloads. Fix these if there is a problem.

If there isn't a problem with the connections, something is probably wrong with the machine. It could be that the hard drive is starting to wear out. Try taking the hard drive out and connecting it to a computer. If your computer asks you to format the drive SAY NO. Use a FILE SYSTEM INDEPENDENT HDD scanner to scan the drive for bad sectors. I use HDD Regenerator. It's not free, but it works VERY well. You may use it freely in read only mode to just TEST the drive for bad sectors though. If it has bad sectors, connect it back to the PS3 and back up your PS3 saves immediately and get a new drive.

If there are no bad sectors, something may have gone wrong with the GameOS. Backup your saves and use the PS3 to do a full system format/reset.

Hope this helps.

I keep getting an error report stating, "http://oca.microsoft.com/resradir.aspc?SID=1485&iBucketTable+1&iBucket =1180947459&LCID=1033&OS=5.1.2600.2.00018300.3.0"; How can I fix...


What you're seeing is a message from Microsoft ONLINE CRASH ANALYSIS (oca.microsoft.com). You are using WinXP and I suspect that you're located somewhere within the US. You seem to be having a problem with Internet Explorer or possibly with an Office 2007 or Office 2010 product.

Please read the following page from Windows Error Reporting:

http://wer.microsoft.com/responses/Response.aspx/1485/en-us/5.1.2600.2.00010300.3.0?SGD=790f1d8f-b3c5-46de-ad3a-82f5dac47ab7

The error message you're seeing could actually be related to countless numbers of stupid Windows problems, so please follow these instructions:

1. MAKE SURE that you have the MOST RECENT updates for Windows XP and Internet Explorer. If you haven't installed Win XP SP3 yet, download it and install it right away. SP3 will reboot your system; do NOT interfere with this process.

2. Next, run Windows Update and let it install whatever patches and patched patches you are missing. This process could take HOURS, so start it and check back every 15 minutes in case you have to click on an "OK" button.

3. Make SURE that you have ALL of the patches and updates for EACH application in Office. Update Word FIRST, then REBOOT THE COMPUTER. After that, update EACH of the remaining apps (XL, Outlook, and PP) but REMEMBER TO REBOOT THE COMPUTER after EACH update.

This could be a SIMPLE fix, or a VERY complicated problem. Please understand that there is no EASY or SIMPLE way to determine EXACTLY where the problem is located, because Microsoft uses some of the basic IE files throughout other MS products, which is stupid in the extreme, but that is "The "Microsoft Way" of doing things.

Good luck with this; you could have a LOT of work to do to eliminate this. Please do NOT simply wipe the HDD and reinstall Windows; you can learn a LOT from this.

No sound device detected in control panel, no speaker icon


This is a generic issue with all Windows OS updates....many of the users are facing this issue....this issue began after an auto update from MS changed many IRQs of Win OS, mainly the Sound and Audio Control system of Windows.
1 - R U facing NO Audio / No Sound issue...?
2 - Is ur Volume Control not responding ?
3 - Is ur Sound and Audio Device in Control Panel Grayed out ?
4 - Do u get a msg "No Active Mixer Devices Installed....when u try to open Volume Ctrl etc etc ?

If ur ans to any one of them is Yes...then u are being spammed by Microsoft....as ur Sound Control IRQ is being frozen by a recent update from Microsoft....

NOTE..THIS…IS…VERY..IMPORTANT...
No file update or any sound driver update can fix it, neither Microsoft is issuing any patch to fix it…or giving any help on this.
Full solution is available in my website (Support page)...it's quite simple process to fix it, and I am not charging any money, just doing FREE service to help everyone affected by this stupidity from Microsoft.
