Thanks Beastie. Yes, I also didn't have a problem with the previous machine, an AMD K6-2 500 (similar to Pentium). I guess it could be very specific to the design of some machines, to decide to turn off the graphics signal if no monitor is detected. Even that is not so bad, no damage would occur, and you could just reboot.
