The Issue

Relevent additional information can be found in this thread: PC crashed while in sleep, now won't start; no fan power

My PC was refusing to start because of a faulty graphics card after a strange crash, despite my never having problems with it before. I'm assuming this isn't some sort of power issue, A) because the fact that it was working fine and B) I didn't lose a boat-load of components from a surge or somesuch. I'd just like to find out what the actual issue was, and if it's fixable, or if I need to stay downgraded to by 640, that I'm currently using.
