Bad sectors on the hard drive then if it wont allow you to format it either by doing a quick format or a full format.

Get a known good hard drive in there to be sure that its not a main board problem. I've seen it where the main board is bad and will give you the same message.

My playstation 3 keeps on saying when i turn it on that your hard disk drive has been currupted and will be restored and everytime i hit restore and it finishes loading it turns off autimaticly and then it...


The first thing you should try is to reformat the HDD. Turn on the system then hold the power button on the front until a menu comes up on your TV. Choose to reformat the HDD. This will take several hours, but should fix you problem.

If the problem persists I suggest contacting the Playstation Technical Support at 800-345-7669

Hopefully I was able to help!

Sounds like a memory problem. You have to remove the ram and spray some air using pressurized air in the slots then reinstall the memory. That might do the trick.
