Why code keeps popping up and I cant play games anymore on my laptop


I'm afraid something went wrong on your hard disk. Try a reinstall or a recover from little while ago. Not telling us what OS you are using I can't go in for more details. Sorry. Next time please give as many details as possible, to avoid questions from us.

My game BFBC2 won't load! Whenever i turn on my PS3 it works fine. When I put the game in the disk icon pops up. Normal. But when I click it my screen goes black. It's a brand new game too! I'm sick of it!...


I'm not and expert but this helped me, turn of the system and then there is a switch on the back. Turn that switch off and let it sit for about one minute. That should work.

Ps3 wont play games, movies or cds


The Blu Ray Diode fried when you shut the power switch on in the back. The PS3 uses 2 different lasers to read disks. One for standard dvd's and cd's and one for Blu Ray. The only way to fix your PS3 is to replace the Blue Ray Diode or laser lens. I would recommend paying the $150 bucks to have sony replace unless you know something about Diodes and lasers.
If you hold down the eject button for 10 seconds it will reset your laser and then you should be able to shut the power down in back safetly.
Formatting and or resetting the hard drive won't do a thing if your diode is fried.
I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.

Dell Dimension 4600 - network adapter disabled - I was told that I would need to re-load the hardware disk that came with the computer. Problem is the disk does not work - it's corrupt. What is work around...


Hi,
Right click on the icon in the system tray and select open network connections, a new window will pop up, right click on the disabled network adapter and select enable.
If the icon is not in the system tray go to the control panel, select network connections and enable the adapter.
If it still won't enable you may have to enable the LAN (network adapter) in the BIOS.
Please post back if you need anymore assistance.



Regards.

System shows that the disc is loading, but does


That sounds like a faulty laser. Unfortunatly,Sony has not fixed this yet and i don't think they will anytime soon. I would suggest cleaning the laser lens first with alcohol and a q tip,if that doesnt work,have the laser lens professionally. If none of the above help,then it's the spindle motor and that can be tested by putting your hand on the ps3 after you slide a disk into the loading slot and feeling for very small vibrations.

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game.
