The first thing to do is check to be sure your hard drive is aligned and installed properly. It may have come loose. If it's not loose then it could just be faulty. This is the most common cause of that type of problem but it's possible it's something else causing it.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like you corrupted the hard drive and will now need a fresh install of the newest Playstation OS.
