Hi, I'm trying to see what the issue is with my Virus TI Desktop so I can know what my next step should be as far as buying a part, sending it in for repair, or trashing it. It's in perfect cosmetic shape in a smokeless home. Yesterday I noticed that about 20 percent of the screen looked a little funny, almost resembling of what a QR code looks like. So I turned it off and unplugged it before I went to bed. When I got up today, I plugged it in and everything seemed fine, the screen was even back to perfect. After about 15 minutes though, I noticed a smell and saw that It was smoke coming from the back of the virus ti. The only thing that was plugged into it was a USB port and the original power cable. I let the smoke go away and I plugged it In again later and it came on for a little, started to smoke again, gave me the error "illegal spdif" or something like that and it won't power on again. Does this sound like something specific/particular as far as diagnosing what the exact issue is ? Thanks.
I'm in the US if that matters at all.
