I got a blue screen that said a problem was detected and windows was shut down to prevent damage. It had a list of instructions on what to do if this was the first time it happened. One of the instructions was to make sure that the hard drive is properly configured and terminated. How do I do this? (BTW, when I restarted, I was given the option to run Start Repair. I ran it. I was given the option to run System Restore, but I didn't. The system restarted fine when Start Repair finished running.)

If this is the first BSOD you've encountered the best thing to do is to leave it alone.
Chances are that Windows has fixed the issue and you won't be bothered by it again.

In the event that it isn't fixed, then you can do some troubleshooting.
You can also use this link to troubleshoot the BSOD to see what has happened. Just paste the results here for us to have a look at.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Okay. Thanks for your help. (Hopefully, it won't happen again.)
