It needs to be thourouly cleaned every few months. That is a powerful fan and it sucks in tons of dust, even if you have the cleanest house. I never rrecommend the after market products. Sometimes they cause your system to have more problems. Untill you get it nice and clean inside, do not push it or the power supply and/or the mother board will blow something. Hope this helps.

I put in a BluRay movie and it shows on the menu but when I hit X to play it, the screen goes black and will not play. PS3 games are hit and miss.


It sounds like you are having a firmware problem. This is common with blue ray. You will have to go to the ps3 site and download the firmware upgrade for your system. I think you can upgrade automatiacally if your ps3 is hooked up to the internet. Go to menu settings and look for updates for firmware or divers...
