Try cleaning out the CPU cooler. Sometimes they get too much dust in them and they cant cool the computer correctly. Blow out the vents on the side or back and you will probably see the dust come out the intake for the fan. Blow out the fan and then the vents again. Do this till you dont see dust come out. Canned air works but I use an air compressor and filter on the line. The i7 runs hot when you game. You may also need to try to put a cooler under it. Try that and see what happens.
Hope this helps... Dale

HI,
The thing is '.dll' type files are a lot of important to run any application and I think that the disk dont have it already in it so there might be a disk problem or this could be because its too old because modern versions of windows like vista, 7 or xp cannot play old games or apps. Your pc probably could play any of the modern games.
Best regards

Game disk inserted reads "Play DVD"

If your Xbox 360 will not play your games this is because of the sensors on the back of the drive overheating it is not normally the laser.

Luckily you can fix this yourself and get back to your games and to do this you need the proven Xbox 360 Repair guide.

Or you can send it in and they will fix it for you the repair will take about 4 weeks.

You can use the recommended guide to fix this and get back to gaming.

Stop the heat and you will be able to play.

Formatting

Hi,

By formatting a disk, your actually creating a Blank-Disk.

The PS2 won,t read a blank disk.

is your console Saying " disk format Unknown "

This is a completely different Issue.

In this case, the PS2 does not play this type of Disk.

When disc inserted says disc error on screen

HI,
Try a laser cleaning disk, you may have debris on the laser head itself.
Also try different disk formats, such as Games-Music-DVD And bluray.
Find out if it,s reading anything At All.

My PS2 does not read game DVDs but plays DVD films

You may need to clean and readjust the laser, which is painstakingly long and hard. As there are like 7 or 8 different version numbers of the PS2 each one has a slightly different internal configuration, guides can easily be found by typing in "PS2 Disk Read Error" on a search engine like www.google.com

Sorry I couldn't help you more, I tried to fix my own PS2 about a year ago and ruined the motor drive for the tray, so will not touch or condone such unless your pretty good with small parts and electronics.
