Uhm, my monitor used to do that once. After a bit it literally fried itself. I could even see sparks and smell the melting plastic. I suggest getting a new monitor before your house burns down.

electrical surge? Possibly, but if uour monitor starts to spark and smoke, you might have to consider the possibility of an electyronical failure.

Hmm, this reminds me of a time at school a few months ago.I was working on a computer, typing up an essay king Louis XIV, and I been working on it for three weeks straight, it was also part of some big project.Then the crapintosh computer froze on me and I suddenly lost it and pushed the monitor off the desk and it smashed onto the floor.
I quickly fixed her up,the stupid frame came off almost and I heard a rattle.Heh, luckily no one knew it was me and it still works.But it makes this ratteling noise and the smell of electrical smoke.

I remeber an evil trick I did at my old school. It was for a diskette bomb, it burns the fucking computer. I got the recipe from the Anarchist cookbook. Booyaka!

I hope you never consider a job working as hardware technician for some company. You seem to have extremely bad luck when it comes to computers :P

You were on fire?

That could explain the mental oddness :P

shit, everyone spills lighter fluid all over their arm and then decides to burn it away instead of wiping it off once in a while. I'm still a normal 15 year old (16 in 2 days!!!!)

I once had a book of matches go up in my hand for no percievable reason. Looks like god wants me to stop smoking.

Did you try opening it up and blowing the dust out with some duster? Just a thought, sometimes the solution is simpler than you would think.
