A hdd is most likely the problem, so I recommend replacing it with more durable much faster ssd.

There is a guide here on how to replace the hdd, but you will sill need to put playstation os on it for it to run.

SSDs are more expensive than HDDs, but the speed boost will be mind blowing.

You can get a ssd here:

Or a SSHD (better than HDD, but still much slower and cheaper than a SSD):

Or just a regular HDD:

Hope this helps!

Sounds like this could be a failing hard drive. Hard drives are known to start running more slowly and when going bad. I would advise backing up any important information as soon as you are able to and then try installing a new hard drive into the PS3. Keep in mind you will have to install the PlayStation OS onto the hard drive before it will boot up. There are many guides online for how to install the software. Best of luck!
