Not really relevant.  When something makes the transition from "working" 
to "broken" there will be a first time when it fails.  No-one wants to 
believe it is happening to them, but hardware fails *all the time*.

There is plenty of documentation online about this (also hundreds of 
discussions in the archives), but it basically involves making use of 
the modularity of your PC to swap out components and attempt to isolate 
the fault.
