Did you switch the board in the cd drive they are cpu linked to the mother board and the codes have to match.

Thank you for your quick response. No, I just changed the motherboard, how do you change the CD because I still have the old motherboard, I can swap the CD?

The way the PS3 was designed is the the cpu is linked to the main board as well as the cd drive in order for it to communicate they have to match anytime you buy a new board you have to get the matching cd drive board as well. If you are unable to get it contact playstation to see if they can program it for you.

What did is went to PlayStation.com downloaded PS3 version 4.81 system files on a flash drive then ran the PS3 on safe mode and restored the system files which did the trick. My system is up and running again however, I do want to thank you for your advice and also You Tube. Restoring the system files worked.
