Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

PS2 slimline will freeze

I have a PS2 slimline, and it has recently started freezing on some games (not all). For each game, it freezes at certain points, like in Grand Turismo, it freezes whenever I choose the mustang, and in Grand Theft Auto, it freezes at the beginning videos. But in other games, there seems to be no problem. It is not the CD because I put the same CD in my sisters console and it works beautifuly. I didnt drop it or anything, what could be wrong???

My PS2 Slimline goes black or freezes or skips during gameplay.

No you prolly dont have a warranty at all. I dont on my refurbished disk. As far as the game not playing it has to do something with the Cd. Alot of times the people that sell the disk send it through a certain kind of scanner and it erases or screws up the CD somehow. U might wanna take it back and get it replaced if its not to late.
