There are two ways to solve this. You could take out the hard drive and use a computer to reformat the entire thing, or you can follow this method to have your PS3 do it for you. Watch the video twice! Make sure your content to follow this solution before you try it, as you will be erasing all your saved data! I'm not sure if you can save the data at this point, I keep a backup myself so that these situations are a lot less painful to deal with.

My Ps3 keeps freezing up but only on 1 game. I've already tried switching disc with the same game. Can you help?


If it's freezing with the same game it means either one or two things.

Your game data is corrupt, fix them by deleting all instances of the game under Game Data. Make sure you backup your game saves to an external usb drive just in case.

2nd possible reason is you've got a bad sector on your hard drive, if the above doesn't work then I would suggest you swap out your hard drive with a new one. 320gb drives from Best Buy for for $50 so it's a pretty cheap fix ;)

Just installed latest update and my system keeps freezing


mikemattok

If you system keeps freezing after you installed your system updates it is possible that you did not get a clean install of the update and your hard drive has corrupted data on it. The link below will help you address this. Note if you still have trouble then you have a more serious hard ware problem.

PS3 freezes when booted up


This sounds like your hard drive might be bad. Try pulling the hard drive out of your PS3 then turn it on and see if it will turn on. If the system turns on then i would say your hard drive definitely needs to be replaced.

Corrupt files


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.
