Try and do a quick format on the hard drive, could of been that somebody switched out the hard drive with one that isn't formatted for the ps3. If it won't let you do a quick format on the hard drive then that means the hard drive that is in the system is bad and would need to be replaced. Once replacing the hard drive then go ahead and quick format it then. It should do it and then you can use the PS3 like you normally would.

Iturn on it says cannot start the correct Hard disk was not found


Open up your ps3 on the right site with a small flat screw driver.
Turn out the blue screw with a small cross screw driver, slide the hard drive to the left and pull it to warts of you, note it is a 2'5 inch sata notebook harddrive.
Hook it up to a pc or mac to run a diagnostic check on it to see if it is crashed, by the way you're able to tell by the sound it makes if it crashed.
