    Hehe... My little sisters monitor just blew up. We were playing a game of bzFlag and she just starts screaming. I run into her room and there are sparks flying off the back of her monitor and it's making a loud electrical buzzing noise, the screen is black. Hehe. Quickly turn off the power, and unplug it. Needless to say it is dead.

    In it's defense, this monitor has been around a while... Its an old 15" which has been hobbling along the last year or so with a dead green tube. It used to be my test monitor, but after I built my sister her PC I gave it to her.

    So anyway. This just gives me an excuse to upgrade my monitor and give her my 17" Samsung SyncMaster 753DF

    Probably does, but I don't think you'll actually die or anything (unless you lock yourself in a small room with no ventilation with a burning monitor for a while) :hehe:
