If you are getting the corrupted drive message this means that you have corrupted data on your hard drive. The link below will help you address this. If you still have trouble you may need to replace the hard drive.

Note the link below I made is based off the original PS3 but everything still applies. If you need the actual physical steps I just got access to a Slim and will be updating the steps this weekend. Also with your Slim it should be in warranty so if the hard drive is bad I would contact Sony's techsupport about getting it replaced.

When i turn on my ps3 it says, hard disc corrupted and will be restored. I click yes the bar goes 100% and the same message cames again. can you help me please


with your console off, hold power button down until it turns on, it will beep and while still holding it in a few seconds will beep again. connect your controller, press ps button and it should bring you to a screen with 6 options. Chose number 5 this will reformat your corrupt drive so you can operate your system. However it will wipe your memory off the drive and you'll have to start from scratch. This is the only way to fix this problem at this point.

Ps3 freezes and screen goes fuzzy


Try to restore file system on your ps3.
Follow this guide.

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when t turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

Hard disk's file system is corrupted.


Most likely your hard drive is completely corrupted. It could be as simple as a new Hard Drive replacement or as complicated as a motherboard issue.
