powers on but no os welcome

so my mother hit the hdd on my ps3 slim and i did not lose a little game info. ok all of it but i mainly play online...

but anyway

when i press the power button to turn it on i hear the beep but then after a while i still see no os saying welcome i just get a black screen no hdd activity and the only way of powering it off is to unplug it. and sometimes it does power on but then the screen freezes and i can her clicks of movement and the hdd has been reformatted and i can not get in safe mode.

maybe if i get a lot of replies to this i will post a video of what is going on :)
