Welcome to justanswer.com
lets perform a hard reset-
Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back .
After that hold Power Button on the front until you hear 3 beeps.
Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format.You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
By doing hard reset you will lose your game saves and settings
Tell me if it makes any difference to your problem.

What are the options listed ?
1 restart system 2restore default settings 3 restore file system 4rebuild database 5restore ps3 system 6system update

Could you please specify the exact error ?
the hard disk drive corruptedd and will be restored
It verifies that the hard disk has gone bad.
First of all we will have take out the hardisk and then format it via PC.
If formatting helps then its alright else we will have to replace the hard disk
First you have to take out the hard disk from the PS3.
