When you restart, tap the F1 or Delete key (usually) to "Enter Setup"...this being the BIOS setup.

Depending on your BIOS version, it may be under the headings "Advanced CMOS", "Boot", "Boot Priority", or something similar. Be sure to save the settings when you exit BIOS...usually accomplished by pressing F10, but look for a menu item for this, as well.

It would probably be a good idea to back up that music...external hard drives are perfect for that and will make the music a little more portable. Plus...if you have a partition corruption or HDD failure, you can just reinstall knowing your files are tucked away on the external.

The problem you just had may have been a precursor of a HDD failure.

Reboot one more time and let me know how it does, but I think you're probably good to go.
