Question about PC Desktops
Yes, but you are dealing with potentially high voltages inside the case. The crackling and sparking are an open short that is being arced but the voltage.
This is one of those things that can be dangerous, so make sure everything is disconnected and that you leave the monitor unplugged for at least an hour so that all of the capacitors can "leak" discharge themselves.
