Please check whether the HDD you want to format is recognized in the BIOS, If yes, then you can format it.
If the HDD is not getting detected in the BIOS, then try connecting your HDD to another IDE Slot.

This is happening cause your rams are bad (not dead yet just leaking data) you need to have them replaced. You can take it out and take it with you to a store and purchase new ones. The rams are located on the main board and held in place by 2 plastic clips in an upright position, Its about 1 and 1/2 inches hight by about 4 inches long with a bunch of IC's tp the sides of it. Remove it by pulling the clips apart. To install just line it up and push down, it will snap into place.

I got a message sayin hard disk's file system is corrupted


Hi snaithy23,

Try reformatting your hardrive again to a FAT32 format. To do so, when your ps3 console is turned off remove the hard-drive and connect it to a PC. Then use this software: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm to format it to a FAT32 format and after that connect it back into the PS3.

Warning: This will result in the loss of all data on your hard-drive but it's the only chance of using that hard-drive again.

Hope this helped!

Need to Reformat my Western Digital 500 Gig Hardrive


Simple, you have to format it by selecting Dos Drive which supports NTFS format.  or else try other option which is to format it in PC computer be sure you will select the NTFS format not FAT32. Im sure you can use it now to both Mac and PC.

Reset BIOS


This isn't a bios problem, this is an operating system problem, and most likely a hard drive problem. Do a system repair with your restore or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, the reformat the hard drive using a full NTFS format, not the quick format, and install a new operating system. If the drive will not format, or you have any issues during or after the format and install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

A blue screen is an operating system error. this can be caused by either a corrupt operating system or a failed hard drive. What you will need to do is run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take then reformat the hard drive and install a fresh operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

Predicted hard drive failure


Sounds as if it's the end for your hardrive, although check it'd connection to the motherboard is ok. If you check you hard drive manufacturer, it may have a 3-5 year warranty period.
