My aspire 5110 crashes often when I unplug it, and re-plug it back in. I have solved this by closing the lid each time I plug or un-plug it in. However, when I forget, the computer totally freezes. Today it is stuck at the reboot from a serious problem stage, and neither option (check and solve problems, or start normally) works. The warrantee expired a few months ago. I have tried closing the lid, powering off the computer, and letting it sit, but no cure.

Re: crash when re-connected to power supply
Go into msconfig and disable all your programs then let the notebook reboot. After it reboots and goes back into windows. Try to unplug it and plug it back in and see if it does the same thing, if so then you might need to wipe out the drive and start over fresh. If it doesn't crash on you after disable the programs and unplug and replug then you have some software that isn't interfering with the power options that controls windows.

With the computer running, unplug the power cord from the computer. Make sure the mouse is plugged in before you plug power back in. During restart after the forced crash the system will re inventory the hardware. If it is a PS2 mouse, and crashing did not fix it, the quickest fix is to retire the mouse and buy a USB or wireless (also USB). The USB mouse seems quicker than the PS2 and they are cheap. Plug in the new mouse, turn on the computer. Plug and Pray.
You think your hard disk is unplugged due to slamming a lid closed? If thats the case then the answer is yes. Get a screw driver and un screw both screws on the bottom of the laptop with the power cable unplugged and the battery out of the unit. Press and hold the power button down for sixty seconds before reseating the hard drive or connecting any cables to it.
it is very unlikely and kind of unusual that the hard drive would just become unplugged due to slamming a lid down. I hope you have not damaged the drive instead? If thats the case then there is nothing you can do but purchase another one.
