[Answered] PS3 Slim 250GB framerate issues help?
Hey all, I noticed that my ps3 has had framerate issues in quite a few games.
I know that some games are just badly coded, yet the issue affects games that used to run well on my old fat Ps3. So far: Demons souls, Dragons dogma, Just cause 2, Disgaea 4 (yep...), and even fairytail fights. XMB takes 5 seconds of spinning to load the games line. Could it be HDD corruption or are slims faulty?
I searched around and tried some "unlikely" setting changes, didn't work, I will try rebuilding database later, though I did that a few months ago and it didn't fix the problem back then. I would rather not format since I have no way of reaquiring my backups, I moved to another country and left quite a few things behind. Yet I probably will format if there's no hope left.
Extra details: 576i RGB (horrid screen), media server off/internet connection off, KMEAW 3.55, using latest multiman, nothing else installed other than Gaia manager and Blackbox FTP (if that's the name). The console is in good condition since I barely used it since I bought it.

I'd suggest reinstalling 3.55 OFW from Recovery and wiping everything from there too. Failing that, I'd suspect hardware problems with the console.
I've got absolutely no problems with my debug-converted CECH-2512A, playing graphically intensive games like GT5 and DXHR and simpler games like Atelier Meruru and AT3, at whatever HD resolution the games support.
