Are you able to access safe mode? If so, try starting it up in safe mode and choose option 3, info's in the link below (it's worth highlighting that there could be implications in choosing the wrong option).

It's usually a good idea to back up any saved data/media just in case something goes wrong, either onto a USB stick or external HDD, although I dunno if that'd be possible in this case :)

If nothing is working it's best to try another 2.5" sata drive in the PS3. to try another drive in the PS3 you'll need to format a flashdrive to FAT32 format after doing this you'll need to create a folder called PS3 and inside that create a folder called update then download the latest PS3 firmware and put it into the flashdrive folder you called update. When the file is on the flashdrive you need to plug the flashdrive into one of your PS3's ports and a controller via usb lead into another usb port on the ps3. After this install the new drive into the ps3 and power it on. Be careful to follow onscreen instructions especialy the ones that tell you to press select and start as these install the latest firmware on the drive once the ps3 formats it. If after installing a new drive on the PS3 you're stil encountering problems chances are that there's a far more serious hardware issue lurking within your system somewhere.

By unplugging you're triggering this menu. Never turn off or unplug from the wall. Instead hold the front power button for 10-15 seconds.

 If you can't get past this screen then boot into Safe Mode and run "Restore Filesystem".
