Screen Damaged

Posted by: Administrator on June 16, 2004 03:04 AM
I inserted the disk and turned to talk to a friend. I didn't see anything happen so I rebooted my machine and we walked to the door. As we said goodbye I forgot to return and look. Hours later when I finally did, my monitor smelled like smoke and it was making static-like refresh noises. Apparently the demo CD doesn't autoprobe the refresh rate and causes damage to monitors.
