NVidia is the manufacturer of the display driver and if not installed will not work properly. I suggest re loading updated drivers from Sony.com because re starting the laptop like that will damage some drivers, especially the display driver software.
That should solve your problem.

My ps3 doest display anything nor makes any sounds please help


Just a gander, but your PS3 may be set for HD output thus not displaying on your non HD television, your best bet in this case is to find an HD television, friend, coworker, etc, connect to it and switch the settings back to regular. Also if I understand correctly leaving the ps3 completely unplugged for 72 hours may also reset all settings. Good luck!

While playing COD4 the game froze on me and then the screen went black. won't recognize any games but will still play movies and access the browser. when i finally got it to read a disk it gave me an error...


I'd try, firmware update and a system restore, but if that doesn't work it's probably:

A Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.
