What caused Moniter to go POP!

  Dearersteak 20:52 26 Apr 2003

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???

When your mointer goes blank with a sizzy and you swicthed it, it is a coincidence.

Act of god, bad luck,total coincidence, take your pick. There is no connection between the graphics card and the monitor kicking its clogs.
