I also think this risk rather applies to old CRT monitors, which use high power to drive the cathode ray tube, and have no internal protection against invalid (dangerous) sync rates. (Like mine, a 10 years old one, which I almost fried accidentally.)
This problem, however, should not apply to notebooks or laptops where LCD is used, and thus the power is far lower. Although I am not quite sure.
