E640 REBOOT


Hi John,

I see you mentioned you update IE9 then you now get a blank screen...

If I may ask the blank screen showed up after the update or did it show up after restarting the computer?

If your getting a Blank screen when you boot into windows after the IE9 update, try rebooting then boot into Safemode.

Restart you computer then as soon as you see the Boot screen of you computer keep on Tapping f8 to get a list select safemode, then once it boots into safemode windows will load up in safemode on the issue and you can navigate arround to fix things that went wrong.

click on the Start Button on the lower left of the task bar then, click on Programs, select accessories then select system tools, look for system restore then select the option select a different restore point, on the window you may see a list of restore points hoping your system restore was turned on in the very beginning, once you have selected a restore point keep on clicking next then a warning will show just click next again then it will restart your computer.

System restore allows you to restore to a date where you had windows working fine without any problems so if you can get a restore point before updating IE9 then it is possible that you may be able to fix you windows back the way it was.

I hope that this will help,

Everytime I turn on the ps3 it start installing an update it stop and display error 8002F14E and my system is fresh out of the box 2-8-2011


Open the side of your PS3 where your HDD is. Take the screw out, but leave the HDD in.
(THE NEXT STEP YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SAVED DATA)

When the update begins, pull your HDD out of the slot. It will tell you an error occured and it tells you to restart your system and try again.
Instead, let the count from 60 run out, your screen will go blank for about 30 seconds then it will start back up and tell you that your Hard Drive needs to be reformatted.
REPLACE YOUR HDD into PS3 - (make sure your controller is PLUGGED IN) and press the white PS3 button on the controller.
It will then ask you to either press start and select at same time OR white PS3 Button - PRESS START and SELECT. Do not agree to user agreements!! Simply hit cancel and it will kick back to the PS3 start up screen.
Then try to figure out if you have a bad blu ray or bad blue cable before you update again

I attempted to update the system from a game and now it's stuck. when i turn it off its just starts the update again and every time it gets stuck on 99% and it just stops. i tried getting to the restore...


If the power button hold doesn't work...try this...,
Take the clip out that holds the drive. Take the screw out but leave the drive inside.
When the update begins, pull your drive out. You will get an error message and it tells you to restart your system to try again. Instead, let the time run out, and your screen will go blank for about 30 seconds until it starts back up telling you that you need to reformat the drive. (If you don't get this message after 30 secs the first time, YOU HAVE TO REPEAT IT till it does. Then put your drive back in again making sure your controller is plugged in (wired in with USB) and press the PS3 button on the controller. It will then ask you to either press start and select at same time OR PS3 Button PRESS START and SELECT. Do not agree to any user agreements!! Make sure you hit cancel and it will reset to the startup screen.
* Just wondering....did you recently open your ps3?

I Keep Receiving Error 80029C77 When I Try The Latest Update For MyPS3


I received this today and first I downloaded the update via the web on your computer to a USB flash drive. Once downloaded create the folders PS3 and the folder UPDATE within PS3. PS3\UPDATE. Move downloaded file into the UPDATE folder. (folders must be in CAPS). Then when the unit is off press and hold the power button until it beeps 3 times. A menu should come up on the screen. Select the option that states update system software (I believe its 6). The unit will update via the flash drive. After that the unit will restart and should be updated and working.

Ps3 plays video games, not bluray movies or dvds


I would start with a firmware update (2.60) and also a full system restore. That should fix the problem. Let me know. I'm a PS3 expert!

Hot shots golf out of bounds troubles


This happened to me as well. The first time, my PS3 seemed to hang during the second update. The next time, I quit the update because I thought the system was stuck in an infinite loop. Turns out that it isn't.

Start from the beginning by deleting the game data file from the PS3 hard drive. Boot up HSG:OOB and wait for it to install. This takes a while, as I think it is something like a 5GB install. When it is finished, go into the game and select the Online option.

You'll see the "Checking version" message followed by a couple of status bars. Depending upon your connection, the update can take anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour. Just walk away and come back to it. When it is finished, you'll be told to press the PS button to quit and then restart the game.

Once back on the main screen, you should see a version # that wasn't there before, on the right side of the screen. You might want to write this number down.

Go back into the Online option. Once again, you'll see a "Checking version" message followed by a couple of status bars. It looks the same as the last update, so you might think this is an error. It isn't. Apparently, rather than updating once to the latest version, the game is going through a series of updates (2 or 3 of them). It's like taking Windows 95, updating it to Windows 98, then updating it to Windows ME, and finally updating it to Windows XP.

Wait for the update process another time or two. For me, each subsequent update took less time. Something like 20-30 minutes for the last one. When you are asked to quit and restart the game, check the version on the main screen. It should be different than what you wrote down after the first update. For me, my updates ended with ver. 090311201. Finally, I was able to select online and it didn't check the version but asked for my login info.

Whenever they update the game, I'm sure we'll have to download the update once again...but hopefully each new update will be minor. But those people who purchase the game brand new will end up going through even more updates with each passing year.

Updating my ps3 from 1.93 ver to a 2.10 vers.


When online(signed in) its in the option menu on the ps3 at the top it says update ps3. this should auto run the link for it. But ive had problems with my ps3 same as yours and it was the updates that caused the problem. so i think when you update it, it still wont read games. And you'll have to call sony for a replacement anyway.... hope this doesn't happen for you but i wouldn't hold my breath for the update to sort it
