Sorry to hear that your system is having some issues. From what you are 
saying, it sounds like you can't even power up to the BIOS screen, 
right? If that's the case it sounds like bad hardware to me, the 
software isn't going to prevent your bios from even "posting". Try a 
hard-reboot, and if it still fails you may want to take a look at your 
individual components. (That GTX480 is a huge power-hog, and I've seen 
plenty of burned out power-supplies when drawing too many amps, that 
would be the first place I would look.)
