Monitor Screen darkens after spark sound is heard behind?

Ive been happily using my computer for...3year or so. But Ive heard a high pitched(say near 5000hz) spark sounding noise(like when you rub your had in front of a tv as soon as you turn it on) from the back of the monitor and that same instance the screen slightly darkened. It a Sony CRT Monitor i don't know what is going on but its like the third time it happens Edit:Its happening more intense now whats going on?

It's probably a broken HV capacitor. Take a look inside and see if you can find any blue capacitors with cracks in them.
maybe the anode cap is a bit loose and is arcing a bit, producing the noise and impeding the current

Hmm...Maybe that could be it...
it could be that the flyback transformer is going to die
