I Was helping my mate put his new machine together, and while 98 was installing, the mointer went blank and there there was a sizzy and them smoke started pouring out of the top. I swicthed it it straight away.
It was a rather old moniter, but it did seem a bit of a coincidence. Only it did go from PCI graphics to a 128 ATI radion, so is there any way that the new machine caused it or was it just a coincidence???
