hard disk corrupted??
  • When I turned on my ps3, the screen flashed a message that said my hard disk is corrupted and will be restored... when I hit x for ok, it just reset the system...and won't do anything else... please help??
  • There isn't much that can be done other than contact Sony's tech support in this case- the drive is either corrupted (as it says) or has something else wrong with it.

    Your only other option would be to replace the hard drive yourself using a normal laptop 2.5" SATA hard drive. Once placed in the PS3 it will be formatted automatically. If you do decide to go this route i will say be extra careful with the screws holding the drive in place- they are made of very soft metal and can strip very easily, you may want to keep some pliers handy if this happens.
