    Keep trying to get into recovery mode, it sometimes takes more than one try, I had one that needed over 20 tries before I was able to get a picture.
    You do get the green light, don't you?

    OK, it might not be the GPU as I wrote in PM, remove the harddrive and try again, if the PS3 tells you to insert a harddrive and doesn't freeze up and everything the harddrive is the issue. Also the PS3 doesn't support NTFS.

    Similar issue with my PS3. Surge protector got unplugged..improper shutdown...now nothing on screen and it won't power up or down correctly. Removed hardrive and system tells me no harddrive found. Got a new hardrive already formatted to FAT32, 5400 RPM, 320 GB. Installed it and now it says hook controller up with USB cable. Did that and it checks for updates but can't find my info. I downloaded it from Sony, version 4.11, on a flashdrive into PS3>UPDATE>PS3UPDAT.PUP. Also got a friend to backup his PS3...Neither software file will load to my PS3. Do I really need to send this thing off? Is there a difference in a HDD drive vs. a regular notebook harddrive?
