    I was playing Pokemon and was looking at stuff in my box when my game froze. I decided it was no big deal and booted it up again. This time when I clicked on a Pokemon in my box it froze at a black screen. I tried one more time and this time the game wouldn't load. I tried other games too and nothing would load. Should I be concerned or does it just need a rest or something?

    Try backing up your files and reformatting the Micro SD card.

    Yes it is dying of Aids!!!

    Anyway, make sure you are using the latest stable firmware, try formatting and maybe a new rom

    Do not ask where to get the new rom it is against the rules.

    How random. Why AIDS? Does it share needles or have unprotected sex?

    I mean, it does seem unlikely.

    Much more likely it is dying of some silicon-type-cancer.

    'cause Aids just sounds the most random.

    It's definitely not the Rom, my whole flash cart was messing up. I re-formatted it and I'm letting it sit for a bit, will try again tonight.

    Isn't an N5 a NAND card? I've got a dead one here, it can't save anymore!
