Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
It sounds like you dislodged the hard drive from it's connections. Your going to have to take apart the console to fit it back into place. Don't worry, that's not as hard as it sounds. Use the link below to see how to check your drive. The process is meant for swapping out the drive to replace it with one that has more space, but the process is the same. If you set the drive back into place and you still get the same message, you may have damaged the drive itself. In that case, kiss goodbye to whatever data you had on there, and go buy a new drive and install it using that same link. You'll have a PS3, but none of that old data.
