Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

When playing crysis 2. ill get so far and the whole system will freeze up. The ps button on the pad wont work. Nothin exept turnin it off and restarting. The same thing has also happened on the hacking sections on mass effect 2. There are other silly graphical niggles on games like batman or motorstorm, where for no reason at all the character has a 20ft long spike protruding from there cheek or nose etc. ... These problems dont happen all the time. And iv never seen any of the same thing happen on my mates.

Hi phill,

If your PS3 is freezing up then you need to stop the heat build up internally and to do this you will need to get it repaired.

Now you can send it in and they will fix it for you that is the standard method however bear in mind that there will be a repair charge of $150 for the fix which is quite steep!

The other way that you can fix it is by using a good PS3 Repair guide.

Just a quick word of advice though, make sure you check out these reviews of the top guides so you can be sure what they offer.

Hi the problem is im turnin it on but nothin is showin on screen checked the t.v not that but it also wont let me sync the controller


hold your power button down for 30+ seconds until you hear your system beep 2 times, the system will restart with factory default settings, this should allow you to sync your controllers, and perhaps reset your display settings so you can use it again

Your PS2 is equipped with a cooling fan which keep it nice and cool, the only problem is that it sucks up dust in the process.

*** WARNING YOU MUST BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL ***
Take your PS-2 apart, you will see the "eye" or laser, this is something you NEVER touch!!!!

Do not use a air compressor, it will spray moister and it has to high of a PSI!!

Get a can of compressed air and hold it upright (do not tilt the can of air or shake it or it will spray nitrogen, freezing your PS-2) and spray the PS-2 with the air using 2 second burst, moving the PS ,not the air. Be sure to spray the "eye" and the housing.

Reassemble the PS-2 and it should work fine.

If not, you need to replace the laser.

My laptop freezes when i try to play games


Does your system meets the minimum requirements for those game? If yes and if you don't play games and your system hangs too, do you get a blue screen with error codes on it? (e.g. 0x0000000E), if so it could possibly be a possible driver conflict and/or a hardware problem. Try running this at a command prompt, if your on vista run it as administrator (start > all programs > accessories > command prompt > right click > run as administrator), then on the black box, type /sfc scannow. Works on XP/Vista. It should fix any corrupt system files. Try also updating the drivers for your video card and try running Everest, a free diagnostic & benchmark tool, you can find it here.

Hope this helps.
