Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

PlayStation 2 acting wierd?

Okay, the system was working fine until on day the screen froze. The PlayStation 2 is now acting weird: It will then say "Disc Read Error" (even when I put in a NEW disc, that has NO scratches on it). I tried a picture-by-picture tutorial on it, and that didn't work either. The inside of my PS2 looked different from the tutorial (and they are both the old version). I cleaned it out, and tried to get as much hair, dust, dust bunnies, and etc. out of the inside. That didn't help much either. Now the disc will make a clicking and grinding noise, and won't play any game! I would also not like to spend alot of money to get a new one (about to get a PS3 soon) but, I would like to get this working, so I can lay my PS2 games on it. (The 40GB PS3 can't play PS2 games). Please help?

    I tried, but it didn't work. I needed to clean the inside out anyway. It will spin the disc, then not spin it anymore, then it will make a clicking noise, and then the message appears (Disc read Error).

Number 1, Stay away from PS3 for right now as it is very unreliable., If you must, get a good warranty.

Fixing the PS2. Get a magnifying glass and bright flashlight and pick the dust, dirt and lint from the Lasers optical path. Also , you might see smudges ot scratches that restrict the optics. .

    Hi,



    Cut a small circle of refridgerator Magnet, then glue it inside the top of the plastic piece( The piece that hold the Disc down) where the metal is inserted in it. Try that as your cd may be slipping. The clicking is the Laser lens focusing.

ISo when you play a game lots of cache is generated and size of game is nearly doubled so this causes problem on a fat partition. And on

I have reinstalled the software on my Inspiron 9100. Everything installs fine until I install either the Intel chipset drivers or XP SP2 or SP3 updates and then after a reboot the screen displays...


Sounds like a problem with the Video Driver...You can always opt out of installing the chipset driver as really the computer can run without it. Does the Dell website have alternative chipset drivers for this model besides the Intel one? If so try it.
