The drive is starting to fail, back up any important game saves to an external usb drive and swap the drive out with a new 2.5 SATA drive ( Laptop Sata Drive) You can get a 250 for less than 50 from Best Buy.
Follow the instructions you see on screen once you power on the ps3 with the new drive and you're good to go ;)

Corrupt files


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

Hard drive


You need to replace the hard drive. That's the ONLY way you'll be able to fix that problem. Any sata drive will do. newegg has them for super cheap.Or you can just grab one from a local Best Buy etc.
