    Just did this myself. It was an obvious problem and i thought I was going to have to replace my lasers but it was not so :D

    Just had to give the laser a good cleaning. I ended up opening up the slim and cleaning it.


    There's different methods to cleaning for different levels of problems. Mine was shot to hell, so I just opened it up and did it by hand

    You can do the following

    1. Vacuum the vents (you tube a how to for your version)
    2. Buy a Disc Driver cleaner (essentially a CD with small brushes on it)
    3. Open it up (like me) and do it :D (I used the liquid solution provided with the disc drive cleaner and q-tip to clean it up)

    Yep, cleaning your system from time to time is good advice- the dust build up really affects performance. Sometimes though freezing could just be due to a faulty or scratched disk though

    which I've also got that. Solved my freezing for my other games, but rdr will still freeze and I have visible scuff marks on the disc whereas the other games don't. So I'm pretty sure the cleaning helped either way.

    Refraining from watching porn is a way to prevent viruses that slow your PS3 down which otherwise would result in a hard disk corruption if not careful.

    I had a house fire 6 weeks ago and my ps3 was taken to be max cleaned. all games work great but rdr. brand new disc so i have two and it happens with both. ever since the last upgrade I lose sound in multiplayer alot (i can still hears players talking just no game sounds) and I have to reboot alot cuz the screen will lock up. usually in mid roll and or just after a kill. didn't happen prior to sonys problems.

    Yeah thats been happening to some of my buddies. One guy decided to do a system restore/reset and did it all over again. He said it worked for him. Mustve not downloaded and installed properly for him.
