ps3 still slow after hdd format...

5 replies 660 views Edited Feb 12, 2013

ok so my ps3 slim 320gb got stuck in the update loop so i had to format my hdd. It had been running slow before that and now it still loads slow, slow when in game and trying to send a message as well (it takes about 60-90 seconds to pull up xmb). I have done the restore database and rebuilt filesystem and it still loads slow. Any advice?

Try replacing the hard drive. It could be that. A bad hard drive will still prompt the CPU with a positive response because the drive is able to send and receive data. Use the trend micro virus scan to make sure that you don't have any viruses on it if you use it to do anything other than gaming and watching the occasional movie.

reformatting a hdd and replacing a hdd are two different things....

 

your hdd is probably on its way out
