On my Ps3, it says "Cannot start" "the correct hard disk was not found" I have called Sony, but they could not help. If I replace the hard drive will this correct my problem?

Hi if you replaced your hdd or if the old went foul try this plug your controller in with the usb lead insert a game disk, put it on standby (red Light) press and hold the power pad you will hear beep,beep, then it will shut down, Do it again beep, beep then beep beep take your finger off then follow your instincts on what it says. Also you may have to replace your hard drive ,not very expensive good luck
