    Okay... I have a really bad feeling about this. Just now I plugged my headphones into the front jack and heard a bzzt sound and felt a shock in my ears. Immediately after that the screen went completely black. I tried moving my mouse but it didn't come back on. I tried pressing a button on the monitor but it says it's in power save mode and press any key or move the mouse but that didn't work... I'm guessing there's a really big chance I fried the video card there. Any way to figure out for sure?

    Did you try using another display? Open your CPU and see if there is any burning smell. Check your PSU also for the burnt smell.
