Well. Looks like I need some new parts, if not a new computer. It seems like it was the graphics card (which I think very briefly actually caught fire -- she's pretty sure she saw flames when she woke it up, and that's where the worst of the scorch marks are).

It's a good thing I didn't have any real data on it, just some saved games (which don't really matter, I don't really care about those at all) and some Steam games and such (stuff I can re-download, anyway), and the physical damage was pretty much limited to the box itself (my desk and the other box I had next to it look fine). But the basement really stinks of electronic smoke now.

At least we have a nice new bed.
