Consider yourself lucky, this one is easy to fix. All you need to do is replace the hard drive with ANY 500gb or smaller 2.5 inch SATA drive.

You can get a 250gb drive for less than $50 from Best Buy right now. Just swap the drive out, turn on the PS3 and follow the onscreen instructions.

Hope this info helps!

System wont boot up,screen says "the hard disk system is corrupted and will be restored" Ihit restore and it keeps going back to same "restore screen" but still wont start up

If you hold down your power button for more than 5 seconds that should start your PS3's system restore. This will put your PS3 back to the factory default settings, which is essentially what the PS3 was like when you first turned it on.The restore function should run automatically and display a few messages to let you know what the status of the restore is. This will also delete your saved into. If the restore does not start then you have a hardware issue with the unit and will have to get it serviced, or diagnose the issue yourself if you have the tools and experience.

My PS3's hard disk file system is corrupted

There is an alternate way to restore your HDD. Turn off your system and when u see the red light, hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 4 beeps (1 alone, 1 alone, 2 together). It usually works on second try. it should show a screen and say hook up controller with a usb cord. Then it should show i think 6 options. Choose the restore option. it should work.

Hope it works and wish you all the best!
P.S.- I just got the 80010514 error on my ps3 and my ps3 games dont work anymore :(
