Yeh cheers for that link. Have contacted Sony who got me to get rid of used Data didn t work so they have told me to do full system restore, takes 2 hours. If this doesnt work they will replace it even though warranty has just run out, because its a 40gb.

This seems to be the PS3's version of the Xbox 360's "Ring of Death" although, I have to say not to the same extent, that was a real nightmare! I had 3 before I got a stable one.

there are no stable 360's they all go just a matter of when

ROFL project 90 though I have to say this one has held on for over a year now, he says while gripping a piece of wood as his knuckles turn white.

I didnt realise xbox360 was as temperemental as ps3. its ridiculous that there so bad for the money you pay for them and the amount for the games. i hope the next games console that comes out is more stable otherwise im going back to playing backgammon, monopoly and binatone
