Question about Computers & Internet
Where there's smoke, something burns. It sounds like the monitor or video cards has/is going out. First I'd have you contact the tech support for your computer and find out what options they have for you. To replace the monitor is not that hard to do, but you do have to have the correct parts, again from the manufacturer.
I would say you will either need to send it back or just hook up an external monitor and keyboard/mouse.

Cannot offer solution but my mine has also gone bad. At first a black shadow appeared on the left side of the screen. Took it to the authorized service center. they kept it a few days, said nothing could be done. Used it anyway for the next 5 years when suddenly it went black (or sometimes blue) after working perfectly for the first 5 minutes. A sharp rap next to the right speaker fixed it a few times, but no more. Good luck.
