    Ok,
    Need to get this fixed. If I update to 4.2 then follow a guide on here would that work?
    Im not getting replies and really need to get this fixed or find out if it is hardware related.
    Thanks

    Sounds like its overheating, if its an older model Wii then disable WiiConnect 24, it will generate a lot of heat just sitting there while not being used. Also make sure the fan in the back is spinning and is in a ventilated area.

    to eliminate the game from prompting to update, just install priiloader and enable the block disc update hack....

    in actuality, you don't need to update...4.1U is as good as 4.2U or 4.3U (as the two later ones only purpose was to combat homebrew)....

    if you wanted to update your IOSes though, just use ModMii....(see the link in my sig)...this will remove the cIOSCORP (outdated at that) your syschk tells us all you have.....if you want CORPed IOSes, use the latest DARKCORP (1.1 i think)....

    all in all though, i'd say your freezing issue is hardware related like the prior post suggests....

    Just checked and it looks like the fan is not spinning. Should it be spinning at all times??
    How do I fix that??

    My sister's Wii did this, I went through the hassle of opening the case up but all it took was my finger pushing on the fan blade, it kinda "snapped" back into place and has been working fine ever since. Her kids knocked it off the shelf and that's what caused the fan to stop working, coupled with WiiConnect24 on and it wouldn't go more than 10 minutes without rebooting. Anywho I think you might be able to fix it simply by sticking something narrow in the back grill and try to rotate or wiggle the fan blade itself. Do this carefully and with something sturdy, like an unbent paper clip so you don't break anything off inside it. Also do this with the power off and it unplugged (in case you accidentally power it up). If that doesn't do it then you'll need a tri-wing screwdriver to open the wii, shouldn't be hard to fix or replace.

    I dont think its the fan,
    This thing wont even stay on for 1 minute, as soon as I press A on the startup screen it shuts down.
    Ridiculous-
    Are the new Wii's softmoddable??

    Unplug it and leave it off for an hour or two to let it cool down lol. Yes you can softmod new Wii's, but why waste the cash when you can easily fix your Wii. And yes the fan should be on constantly. If your fans not working, and the Wii keeps resetting (and you have wii connect 24 enabled), its pretty obvious a heat issue.
