    TV does not sense the A/V input from the PS3. First went out on my Flat panel using a HDMI cable. Tried on an older TV with AV cable, still nothing.

Make sure the system is off. Hold down the Power Button for 5-6 seconds until you hear the second beep. Your video settings should now be reset and you will be able to choose your connection type. It will automatically default to AV so make sure you at least have that plugged in.

Why my desk top computer no sound no picture complete dead


Make sure you are getting power to the receptacle, a circuit breaker may have popped. If you have a surge protector then push the reset button. If you have power to the receptacle, then insert windows cd in tray before turning it on, then select boot from cd then hit enter. This will often recover the boot sequence and load the desktop screen. Restart the computer without the cd and see if the desktop comes up. Good luck, had to do this to a desktop unit running Windows XP.

Problem with acer laptop. My laptop stopped booting after restart. I just moved my laptop from bed to floor . while in power on the program just crash not responding, then came a blue screen and said...


Click the power button and watch the screen to see which key it says to press to get into the Bios or System Setup. Change the boot order or boot sequence. It looks like it is set to boot from a Network or LAN first. You want to boot from the hard drive 1st or the cd drive 1st and the hard drive 2nd. This will change it permanently. Then reboot.

There might also be an option to change it temporarily when you boot the system. Just watch the screen and see if it shows you which key to press to change the boot order or boot sequence. It is only effective for this one boot.

Having problems rebooting. I cant get to windows


Make sure you are booting from your hard drive. If there is a cd in the cd drive remove it, sometimes the boot sequence starts with the cd drive.

When you press the power button watch the screen for which key to press to change the boot sequence. Press it and select your hard drive. If it boots, then next time press the key to go into you Bios or System Setup and change the boot sequence to check your hard drive first.

If after booting from your hard drive you are still having problems then you will need a repair disc or system disc to get to a dos command prompt (black screen with white writing) and enter this command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour, but that's ok, let it run. You will also notice the percentage of completion going from high to low, this is normal too. When it finishes reboot.

If Check disk does not fix the problem you will probably need to reinstall your operating system. Try doing a repair install to keep your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and programs.

My ps3 turns on and shows the wavy background for the home menu screen but no menu icons show up. Nothing on the controller changes anything and icons never come up. The wavy colored background is there...


This problem is because your PS3 software has become corrupt. The following steps will cure the problem but you will lose saved games and all other data. Your trophies will not be affected as these are stored by the Playstation Network.
Step 1. Turn your PS3 onto standby (Red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, beep 5 seconds later then beep once more 5 seconds later and then turn back to standby. Release the power button.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button as soon as you hear these two beeps.
Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to plug in a controller with a USB cable and press the PS button. Do this and it will boot into the recovery menu.
Step 5. Choose option 5 (Restore PS3 system). This will re-install the PS3 software and restart the console.
Step 6. When the PS3 restarts you will be asked to enter the time and date and other information. When the setup is complete your PS3 will boot into the home menu normally.

Hope this helps

Wont boot fully boot up.


Try reseting your PS3. Turn your PS3 completely off by the switch in the back. Then flip the switch back on. Press on the power button and hold it until the green light comes on, beeps twice then the green light should go out, replaced by a red light. Then turn it on normally.

MY SON PUT A MAGNET IN MY PS3 NOW IT DOESN'T WORK. WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED AND HOW DO I FIX?


If it was a powerful magnet and was near the hard drive, it could have messed with that. Aside from the hard drive, I can't think of anything that would react negatively to a magnet.

Can you elaborate a bit on "doesn't work"? Does the red light come on when you plug in the power? Does video come up on the screen but the PS3 not boot? etc
