It's fried! You can claim it on your homeowners/renters insurance in a situation like that!! Or you can sell it for parts on eBay and get up to $200 for it. Hope this helps. Good luck to you.

Wont read the hard disk,

Hello baddestsob,

Most likely you need a new hard drive. Just take out the one you have and get the same exact one or even one with more GB. You can get them on eBay for about $20-50 (US). Just be very careful not to mess up the screws that hold the hard drive onto the holder. This should save you some money.
If your PS3 is still in warranty then call Sony.

I hope this helps. Good luck!!

You need to get it replaced or fixed - take it back to wherever you bought it with a reciept and they should either replace it or get it fixed. If you replace it, you might want to copy your saved games onto a USB device.

Alternatively, you can phone Sony (the number should be on their site somewhere, use Google) and they should help you get it fixed/replaced directly through them.

You can either;

Format it (system settings) and hope it fixes the problem (this may not necessarily work).

Or get it replaced. If you bought it from a shop (As opposed to ordering it online) and have the reciept, take it back to the shop and ask them if they'll replace it. If you can't do this because you don't have the reciept (or the shop is evil), call Sony up (find the number on their website) and tell them about the problem, and they should arrange to pick yours up and have it replaced.
