I tried going into recovery mode...but the problem with that is, I can't see what I'm doing.
I haven't tried a non-HDMI cable (can't find it for the life of me)
Also, I neglected to mention I'm using a HDMI switcher(?) to switch between cables (TV -> Xbox, TV -> PS3, TV -> Laptop); I didn't mention it because it's probably not the problem, but I figure I'll mention it now just in case.
mate I still have the Data Corrupted when trying to Restore File System in recovery mode. Seems my hdd is busted and I'll have to buy new one, I went into store and bought sata 2.5 to usb adapter and I did format the hdd from the pc. all seems well from the pc side but when I put it on and made the ps3 format it into it's own it still didn't fix the error in recovery mode, Data corrupted.

It seems it was probably my HD cable switcher. I tried a straight connection to my TV, and it worked just fine. I think it might have fried something in the switcher somehow when I unplugged my PS3. I'll try to see next if it's the cable connecting from the switcher to the TV.
