My fat 40GB PS3 had its hard drive corrupted after a few years of owning it so I had to get rid of it. However, all of my friends who own the slim model are fine. I really want to buy a new PS3 but if there's a chance it'll end up like my last one I'm not paying $250 for a new one.

Like any computer all hard drives eventually fragment or corrupt through regular usage. Simply use the rebuild and restore functions of the PS3 once in a while to maintain your hard drive.

My friend knew someone that thought his ps3 was broken. Wouldnt show anything on screen but would turn on. He ended up giving it to my friend I found out it had a corrupted hard drive. Googled it up and it was a simple fix. Something like holding down the power button for 5 seconds 3 times till you hear 2 beeps. It lets you restore you ps3 hard drive. Doesnt delete anything. Ps3 was working perfect. Looks to me like you got rid of perfectly good ps3.
