Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I got hit w something as I downloaded a movie from ip torrents. I never learn my lessons. The screen just went fast blue fickered and died. It wont even go to safe mode and now even the video card wont even show up. Hmm I did notice the fan on the video 512 nvidia was a loose the glue came off the fan attachment. But I think it is a virus or worm. I have bought a new drive but I did notice that the restore from factory disk would not do anything either. Perhaps its the card?
