Here's how the problem started.. My 17" crt display went kaput, and the monitor started emitting smoke. I closed the power immediately and that was it. Forward 2 days later... called in LG service and the guy fixed my monitor! bingo. But now when I start my computer, it makes a REAL LOUD noise and everything vibrates wildly. the noise and the vibration 'stay' for 2-3 minutes before stopping. Now I have searched a bit and come across several probable causes - and eliminated quite a few , like hard-disk, dvd-drive , wires touching fan.. What I really want to know is that could there be any relation between my monitor going dead an smoking, and the cpu vibration? The system is functioning just fine right now and a soft reboot does not cause any sound or vibration. Also the problem does not happen everytime..
