The reason why its not formatting and staying at 0% is because the hard drive is bad and needs to be replaced.

Here is an article that explains how to swap out the hard drive:

What causes the machine to display messages like primary hard disk drive 0 not found. primary hard disk drive 1 not found. strike the f1 key to continue, f2 to run the setup utility?


The system cannot find your hard drive. Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case, then remove the cables that are plugged into the hard drive and plug them back up. Reboot and see if it recognizes the drive.

If not, you can try the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

How to factory reset?


Hello and thank you for using Fixya.

First, You will need to make the recovery discs which are created using the built in program from your computer. Copy them onto a blank CD/DVD. Now insert the newly created restore disc to restore your factory settings by rebooting from the hard drive. Turn off the PC. Wait a minute. Now hold down the 0 (zero) key and push the power button once. A screen message will appear after a few seconds. Choose to reboot from HDD. (or you can choose to reboot with recovery disks using the DVD drive.) Follow the instructions. It will take about two hours to reinstall your operating system.

If you have any more question feel free to ask

I was watching a dvd and ejected it with the eject button without quitting, then the screen went black for over 5 mins so i held down power button for 10-15 secs to shut down, turned it back on and it said...


Whenever you have a system that shuts down like that, you can expect to have hard drive problems.

ry accessing the recovery menu 'safe mode'.



Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



If you have a HDMI cable, plug it up, if you have AV plug it in as well. If you have both settings on your TV, be sure to have them both inserted into the system. Also, make sure that you are switching your TV from HDMI to AV and vice versa.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 1-5


If none of this works:

ou will need to replace the HD.

When you replace your hard drive, you will need to have the latest firmware on a

usb stick. Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Once prompted by your system you will need to insert the usb stick into the

PS3. Good luck..



You will need 2.5" Sata Hard Drive.

Question about my hard drive


LOL , no my friend , you simply lost your HAL.dll , hardware abstraction layer

you need to reinstall windows , thats the easy way out

or you can take the hard road to china and attempt to recopy your HAL.dll to the proper location on the drive , my personaly I don't even go there , a fresh copy of windows is so much better in these instances because you don't know what else has gone wrong at this point , best to do a reinstall
because there really is nothing like a good ole fresh load of the operating system.
