as its only two months old, it may be a internal problem, but make sure the ps2 has good airflow and the games arent dirty, you can contact your dealer about the problem.

PS3 slim freezes on XMB

The issue I had with my slim, was that 1 week to the day after my warranty expired, I would get "Disk read Error" It didn't start saying that until some time playing COD MW3. I was forced to do an out of warranty repair. Witch surprisingly only cost me $105.00 exactly. Sony payed for the shipping. After I got my system back in about 2 weeks, they sent me the data sheet of the work they did. Sony basically replaced my whole system's insides and I got a like new system. My guess is that they would do the same for you, and around the same price. They will quote you the price before you agree to the service request. $105.00 is a lot better than $300.00 for a new system.

My playstation 3, which i bought this christmas, new, is crashing alot. Alot more every day. we play call of duty black ops but it does it on a couple other games as well

Usually heat or bad sectors/ corrupt sectors on the hard drive will cause this issue.

I'd recommend getting two cans of compressed air, taking it outside and clearing out the dust, then when you play cod run a mini fan directly onto the unit.

COD runs heavy on the graphics hence it happening more with that game than others ;)

My games freeze and dont always load right

Dells have this problem alot, due to the fact the stock components are not sufficient enough to handle the minimum requirements most games need now days. This could possibly be your issue too. Look and find out the minimum requirements for the game and then see what you need to install to make the game work.

Game froze in middle of play, turned on and off, now it wont even load the main screen..360 is 4 years old

Life expediences is 2-4 years statistic are hard to nail down .
This problem has been traced to a commutations error from the
GPU-CPU and causes latching and finally lockup ( Freezing ) with
no recovery aka crashing.

There is One Enemy it's the G.P.U.and it's self-destructive
thermal issues. First if the P.C.board is fairly true and straight
then a solid recovery is possible.

The G.P.U. must be properly re-flowed then re clamp to the heat sink
with a stock X clamp or have a hardware up grade to more
evenly compress the G.P.U. after all the connections
have been established . A solid clamping system will provide for
the greatest operational stability

1 X clamp mod will get your unit running for about 2-4
month on average with exceptions. After it fails
again repeat attempts will prove less successful.

2 Re-flow with a x clamp reinstall will yield 3-12 months

3 Re-flow with better clamping system will yeaild 9+ months

This issue would have to be resolved in home, it is linked to a power issue and your voltage will need to be checked at the outlet your recvr is plugged into, HD DVR's need alot of constant power to operate poperly. the nes time you call about this issue the standard procedure is to send a tech to check voltage.

for freezing problems... try to move your system away from areas that are often hot, blocking the vents, or blocking air movement. the main culprit for freezing issues is over heating. if your system becomes too hot it will flash green and red where your power button is. so if your having trouble with that problem follow those steps.
