Default nvidia geforce 6800 gt oc problem

Got this card for a build (you might remember the post) anyway i set it up once i had all the parts and it ran fine for about 5 hours. The next morning i unplugged all my cables and then plugged them back in and i get no video. Everything else is fine, the vid card just doesn't come on.
I looked closer and a tiny red light flashes for a second when the computer is turned on. Thats it. I've talked to bfg tech and they basically said its no good send it back. I don't have the time or parts to do serious tests and i'm just gonna send it back unless someone has a clue as to what causes this and what can fix it. I would really appreciate this.

there can be a number of reasons:
static electricity killed it
the heatsink was not on right and heat killed it
some part was weak, and it died because of stress even with normal operations
