Have you tried turning it off and on again?

It was the screws >.<

I was testing it with the case open and everything in place. When I realised the card was working again I screwed everything back in place and lugged it back to the bedroom.

Broke again.

Back to the table, unscrew everything. Working.

Tighten the screws securing the graphics card. Broken. Loosen working.

Seems like they must've been twisting or contorting the card in such a way that it was sufficient to cause a bad contact somewhere, presumably in the PCIe slot, so I wasn't getting any picture.

So, computers back at my desk with the graphics card working, albeit not fully screwed in >.<

It's played havoc with my back injury though :(
