    Lately, my Wii has began to freeze whenever I load my retail games. When I turn on my Wii with the retail game in, my Wii will boot to a black screen. If I put the retail game in after my Wii menu has loaded, my wiimote will no longer be able to point at the screen, though it is connected to the Wii. So, my only option is to load neogamma and then load my retail game. The only thing I changed in my Wii lately was reinstalling my menu and doing pimpmywii to make sure I was uptodate. Any help?

    Yes, I have priiloader. I dont think its the vibrations as this doesnt happen with backups.

    Uninstall priiloader. I asked because there's a bug in it that causes symptoms just like this.

    Run its installer and select the uninstall option to get rid of it. If the problem disappears, try reinstalling it. Often reinstalling it makes the issue go away.
