I think mine finally popped. Just went down stairs to make myself a cup of tea and when I came back up the monitor was dead. Regarding the smell, mine smells like what can only be described as "a hot hair dryer / curling iron". I take it this is the aroma of popped internals? DGM's website is up for me. But I think I'm going to go with the brick Bidders went with. I'm willing to pay a bit more for a quality brick. Anyone else using one?
