Hmm...whats the refresh rate set to on the monitor?

You could also try doing a degauss on the montior, there should be a setting.

I doubt these though would be a problem of a USB controller, though something else could have changed at the same time. You never know with computers

If it's CRT move any speakers away from the monitor. Also, check the refresh rates. Perhaps it's on its road outta here.

Yeah...trouble is, so would the whole world! They run everything...

Anyone heard of the dangers of an EMP bomb? Electro Magnetic Pulse. For example, imagine this scenario:

If an EMP bomb got some aid to shoot up in the sky 10,000m into space, and it blew, basically about half the worlds power would be out... it'd fry everything electronic... dangerous huh? The only way they'd survive is if they had some kind of magnetic protection.

Basically we'd all be in stuck... I was watching a programme on it on TV. They had one go off near a PC and the computer had a clock on it that was going up, and it started changing rapidly and messing about. Finally it croaked and the computer forgot what it was when switched on!

LOL, and the beuty is, most upper atmospher EMP bombs are just nukes. Just cover your equipment in a Faradays Cage, should be fine then. No problem with the help. Anytime. Glad to be appricaited.
