Usually the PS3 freezing is related to the laser or hard drive problem but the majority is a laser problem. Depending on what model of PS3 you have, you will have to purchase a KES-400A or KES-410 Laser. You can buy them on Ebay with the KES-410 laser being a lot cheaper. They are highly sensitive to static so please be careful or you can damage them. Replacement is medium difficulty and you will be required to have a T-8 security bit on hand to open the case. Everything else inside is a philips head.
