Hmmm thought it may, just booted up and can use everything else again!!!
Contacted the place that built my machine to see if I can claim for a new one under the warranty, on their site it says-
We choose to give customers the manufacturers warranty. Manufacturers of components give warranty on selected components for an additional 2 to 5 years.
Intel CPU's - 3 year warranty.
Maxtor hard drives - 3 year warranty.
Corsair memory - lifetime warranty.
Asus motherboards - 3 years.
To take advantage of this after the 1 year period you can raise an RMA. You will be liable for shipping the part to us and the cost of shipping the part back to you.
So hopefully I should be covered as the machine is just under two years old
Thanks for the reply anyway
