I recently changed my video card from a 770GTX to ASUS turbo 1070 today monitor started flickering,a pop sound like something breaking and smoke started coming out of the monitor. Shutdown immediately switched out monitor it won't start up and beeping sound emanated from computer. Changed back to old video card computer worked than I put back new video card the computer worked.
Should I trust the card or will it fry the other monitor too? If the card worked now what could have fried the monitor? Anyway if something is wrong with the new video card it won't start up and work with the monitor I switched to am I right. The monitor that fried was an old monitor. The one I am using now is about the same age too.
I am at wits end now wondering if this is going to happen again.
