    my monitor keeps clicking like its switching resolutions, until it doesnt turn on anymore. if i turn it off for a few minutes it will be ok for 10 minutes. ive used the good old hand thermometer and nothing seems to be overheating

    You took apart your monitor?

    Is it a CRT?

    I assume you knew where the caps and their connectors were, otherwise you could have badly electrocuted yourself even if unplugged. Monitor caps hold their charge for months, one wrong move and bang.

    "To help scare any one from doing anything stupid remember that anything plugged in can kill you. If you touch the wrong place without knowing it, even by slipping, and make the right contact you are going to complete the circuit straight from the outlet. Remember this that if you complete a circiut from an outlet or touch a high powered capicitor or transformer you will have at least 5 amps running through your body. 5 amps has enough potential power to instantly make your heart explode, flash boil your blood, collapse your brain, and start to slowly melt your skin. Your skin doesnt burn. It starts to melt. So the next time anyone decides to open a TV, computer power supply, monitor, car amp, anything of the such remember that and leave it to the people that know what there doing."

    Supercaps are dangerous things, sounds like you were lucky .

    doesn&#39;t turning your monitor on without plugging it in at least reduce this current?
