Default Something scary happpened last night

Relevent specs
uname -a
FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE #0: Mon Jul 19 02:55:53 UTC 2010 root@almeida.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC i386

dmesg | grep nvid
nvidia0: <GeForce 9800 GT> on vgapci0
vgapci0: child nvidia0 requested pci_enable_busmaster
vgapci0: child nvidia0 requested pci_enable_io
vgapci0: child nvidia0 requested pci_enable_io
nvidia0: [ITHREAD]

All of a sudden my computer's fans sped up and got really loud. I lost my display(no signal), i couldn't power off the machine, even if holding in the power switch. No response from keys or mouse. I finally unplugged from the back and it turned off. After a reboot and fscheck everything appears to be working ok...

Are there any logs i can check to see what happened?

This looks like a hardware failure, which means it's a no.
