You must not read tech news sites or blues enough. There's been cases of nvidia drivers screwing up with the fan control on nvidia cards and heating themselves into perma hardware failure (you'd think video card companies would do minimal testing on a new video card driver , say by playing a game with them to see if they melt?). Nvidia even offered to replace cards that had that happened to them.
It would be incredibly unusual, I agree, but it does NOT have to be physical problems.
How is a fan not running NOT a physical problem? I know what you are getting at though... still that would be an extream exception and not a problem resultant from Blizzard. The way he wrote his original post made it sound like computer hardware is made of gel caps and choco-puffs.
