You might have to format it, If it still doesn't work then your HDD is dead. Try here for some solutions.

No.  If the PS3 System couldn't fix the corruption and boot to the XMB successfully, then your save data is gone for good.  There is no way to recover it.  That is why the PS3 has a Backup Utility, but you have to use that before your PS3 hard disk data is corrupted. It can't help you now.

The data on the hard drive is clearly corrupted beyond the ability of the PS3 System to repair it.  That doesn't necessarily mean that you need a new hard drive.  It could just be the data that is damaged.  It does mean that any data on the hard drive that you don't have backed up is gone for good. The first thing that you should try is to boot the PS3 in safe mode (https://support.us.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1488), and use the Restore PS3 System option.  That may get your PS3 working again.  If that does not work, then you probably do need a new hard drive.

well i have done the restore ps3 system, and it sat for about 9 hours and nothing happend,also when i try to reformat or restore the system in the system settings it says 7hours 1minute when it starts,then as the percentage gets higher,the time goes up, i've had it on 12%,with an estimated time of 28 hours!!!, i did it for the full time once and it was 22 hours, but it was still F'd up with some bigger games like skyrim and recently GTA5, so is that a full on replacing the hard drive?,

when i try to play games like skyrim or GTA5 they take forever to actually load the game onto the ps3 and when they finally do they are slow to load in game objects such as in skyrm they story stops to load for about 3 minutes then plays again for 10 seconds then does it all over again and in GTA5 streets and buildings will disappear for periods of time until i stop playing for about 5 minutes and let the ps3 catch up on loading everything and then ill play for 2 minutes and it does it again so in short i cant play games without waiting 2 minutes every couple seconds so story and graphics load bluray movies take some time to load and play regular dvds are fine, harddrive? graphics card if it has one? age?
