I do appreciate the help, but in my case the player then stopped playing music and gave me a black screen that completely froze the player. On the plus side, once I hit the reset button (on/off switch was dead when I got the frozen black screen) it worked again at power on.
FEAR is a great game, with little replay value, but it does have its ****-your-pants moments. (However this is coming from the guy who didn't buy Doom3 because the demo had him jumping in his seat) AVP2 is also a classic scarer, had the game for a year and havent finished the human campaign (not really trying to push through it though).
