Dear,
you may try to use the PS3 recovery options.
The PS3 stores a copy of firmware drivers on the hard-drive and will reload any corrupt files. To access the recovery menu, do this:

  1. Make sure the PS3 is turned off
  2. Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off.
  3. When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two consecutive beeps. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try)
  4. It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable,
  5. Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu.
Please rate my solution ++++ if it was helpful, or feel free to ask for more information. Thank you

Hard disk is corrupt will restore


Hi.

That happens because the hardware is defective. The restore will reinstall the system on the defective hard drive. After restoring the system the console will not start because the hard drive where the system has just been restored is broken.

You can attempt to recover the hard drive connecting to a computer, rebuilding partition and doing a complete formatting. Most of the times you need to replace the disk.

Regards.

The hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored. It restores but when the playstation restarts it says it again and restores again. Then it all happens again.


Hi alexcarver20!

Try reformatting your hardrive again to a FAT32 format. To do so, when your ps3 console is turned off remove the hard-drive and connect it to a PC. Then use this software: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm to format it to a FAT32 format and after that connect it back into the PS3.

Warning: This will result in the loss of all data on your hard-drive but it's the only chance of using that hard-drive again.

Hope this helped!

If you are getting the corrupted drive message this means that you have corrupted data on the hard drive or there is something wrong with the hard drive. If you have tried the built in repair options and they do not work then you will need to format the hard drive with an externally with a computer. The link below will help you do this.

Either you DVD is corrupt, OR the DVD reader is not working correctly. It seems the reason the restore failed, is that it "Thinks" the Hard Drive is corrupt, too corrupt to replace the OS on...
The only thing to try now, is to get a Windows install DVD, put DVD in drive and boot from the DVD, then try to install with that, when you get to installing and it asks if you want to Format, do so, format Full NTFS. Then try to proceed to installing. If this too fails then you will need to replace your hard Drive, quite a simple matter.

E-Machine T2893 keeps restarting after rest=ore


I don't think the problem is with the motherboard. It's likely that you have a corrupt Windows installation and that reinstalling Windows will fix it. Unfortunately reinstalling Windows will also erase any data you have on your hard drive. Do you have access to another drive that has windows installed already? You could try installing the other drive to rule out a faulty motherboard, but I think it's likely a Windows problem.
