Download and install SeaTools or a third party app called HD Tune.
The above apps will provide you with all the information related to the drive(s - will provide information from other drive vendors in your rig).

I'm afraid to shut off my computer now.
Don't! Backup all of your stuff before you do anything else! If you don't have another hard drive to put your data on, get one of those cheap 16GB USB thumbdrives and backup all you can... especially documents, fonts and the whole Documents & Settings folder if you can.
