sudo chown -R your_user_name: /home/*
But surely, reconnecting some hardware would likely not have any effect on the booting of an o/s?
sudo chown -Rvf hidan:hidan /home/hidan
Edit #2: just realised something. In tty-2 mode(alt + ctrl + f2) , I was able to login with my username and password! This means that the gui is not working?

Something along that line probably. What about startx from tty2?
And are you unable to log in or does x not start?
If it becomes to hard, make a fresh install. It may not be worth it to try to fix the problem

ChrisBieda suggested changing the jumper on the Western Digital drive from Master to Single. I did this and it has solved the problem on my system. Thanks ChrisBieda!

I think this is getting a bit dangerous - you may destroy more than you cure in your search for a solution.
The only real test now is to disconnect the disk with your home and install on another and see what happens. If you still have the problems..... but if they disappear you know where to look.
Oh - I'm very rarely on the IRC, I get to distracted by it...
