i don't know the name of this virus but few years back friend of mine had in his computer the virus when it used to detect his computer idle then it used to read and write the same sector continuously for hours to his HDD if left his computer on over night or something resulting in physical damage to that sector over time,
it was cleverly written, it was never active when user was using computer, but when mouse and keypoard are not used for sometime then it used to get active almost no way for person to find out, and even symantec anti virus didn't detect it.
virus itself can't destroy or blow anything but can be programmed to mess up mechanical parts by abusing them.
some past monitor viruses i came across in 90's
a- virus written to select higher refresh rate for the monitor than it actually designed for thus messing up the tube in long run (back then monitors were simple analog control one with no protection or anything)
b- there even another one i came across in 90's for the monitor since windows has the software ability to turn on the monitor and turn off electronicaly (SLEEP MOD), so virus would constantly turn on the monitor then turn off every 3 seconds thus burning the monitor electronic switch or messing up the tube in few days.
