Alright, so I'm going to sleep after finishing up on some work, and so I clicked the shutdown button on my windows 7 laptop. Go and took a shower. When I came back, the screen was still at saying shutting down... which of course, seemed a bit out of place for me. After waiting another 5 minutes, the dreaded BSOD showed up. The usual wording, except that it said Hard drive power crash or something, then restarted itself. After going back to the login screen, it shut down without incidence. Also, I've been trying to get my computer to recognize my phone, but it never detects it at all, my USB mouse is working though. Any suggestions guys?

Look in event viewer to see what caused the BSOD.
