The harddrive has failed and is common for harddrives to do this, not neccessarly so soon but it is common.

You can purchase another HDD. They are fairly cheap from http://www.newegg.com

You need a 2.5" SATA Laptop HDD.

May I add it is simple to replace and it will not void your warranty.

Iturn on it says cannot start the correct Hard disk was not found


Open up your ps3 on the right site with a small flat screw driver.
Turn out the blue screw with a small cross screw driver, slide the hard drive to the left and pull it to warts of you, note it is a 2'5 inch sata notebook harddrive.
Hook it up to a pc or mac to run a diagnostic check on it to see if it is crashed, by the way you're able to tell by the sound it makes if it crashed.

40gb ps3 not reading any discs


clean off a disk and see if that helps. if it doesn't, the laser lens inside the PS3 may be dirty. you may have to have someone check, if nothing works, to see if the laser itself has broken. also, listen to hear if the guts are working at all.

PS3 corrupted hard disk


Yes. All you need is a Seagate SATA 2.5" hard drive. It doesn't matter how many GB it has. If you have the 20GB or 60GB model of PS3 for goodness sake keep it!! That model is backwards compatible and will play PS1 and PS2 games. The 40GB unit does not have this luxury. I hope this helps you. Good luck and happy gaming!!
