    Screen Fried after 5 Minutes of Minecraft

    I Don't Know if this applies to graphics or hardware, but I was playing single player on Minecraft, when after 5 minutes of standard survival, Minecraft crashes.(not too important) My screen goes dark, with a white cluster at the top and bottom of it. I have checked my graphics, (I am using my backup temporary monitor right now) and it turns out my primary monitor is fried. What I want to know is why it got fried after something it was more than capable of handling.
    Here's some info about the monitor

    Model name: SyncMaster 920ww
    Brand: Samsung
    Model Code: LS19HANKBM/XAA
    Made: March 2007 (This may be why it fried, I got it in 2012)

    Yes, age has a lot to do with it. Older ones have/had CFL tubes for back light and electrolytic capacitors, coupled with higher temperatures, capacitors dry up and make a mess of everything else. Unless you overclock monitor (yes, there is such thing) it can't die because of GPU or SW.

    Playing the game likely have had nothing to do with it. It just happened to be what you were doing when things went south. Age of the display sounds like the likely reason. It just reached its end of life.
