It played up a few times last week before i put my new HDD at the weekend by turning off and giving the signs that it was overheating, even tho it always run cool and never revved up I always had the thought of it lasting a little longer tho with it being the 40GB model prone to BD failures so i was half expecting that to be what it would fail.

We are all wishing her a speedy recovery: Beavis is da man Vote Stu for PM: It’s very likely that they’ll be able to fix it, unless your GPU is completely fried, or your HDD is corrupted, but the chances of that happening is thankfully rather slim.
