I had some alterations done to my computer desk the other day and since then my spare CRT monitor's light will not come on nor will anything show on the screen. The desk had been shaken around a wee bit with some steel being sawn off while the monitor was still on it. The LCD monitor, PC and other items are fine, however.

Plugs are plugged in properly, powerpoint is working, etc etc.

Has it gone and died on me? :dogeye:

Looks a bit like it. :dogeye:

Pull it apart and check the power switch, if your that way inclined.

Tried a different power cable?

I don't think I've got another monitor cable. Unless I pinch the one off the other PC.... Yeah! Good idea! :thumbs:

It's not worth pulling it apart - too old and it's only a spare. If it's dead I'll get a new LCD to replace it. :cool:

Good move. :p

Fair enough, it does sound as it it's kicked the bucket. Good excuse to upgrade. :thumbs:

Go shoot it. Best way to farewell a CRT monitor. :cool:

Good idea! What would you recommend, an air rifle, a shottie, .22, .308 or 7mm08? :p

Definitely .308. Far more satisfying! :thumbs:

Edit - well, is it a pump-action shottie?

Not pump-action.

Finding somewhere to do this dirty deed will be the hard part. :rolleyes:

Hmm, well in that case I'd probably stick with the .308.

When theres a will theres a way. ;)

Come to Canterbury Gun Club at McLean's Island.
Plenty of room to do the deed here.

As I am not a member I will be restricted to their once-a-week public evening which can get a little crowded. Not sure how impressed they would be with my intentions either. :p

Come on! Shooting an old CRT monitor, who wouldn't be absolutely excited. Watching it explode, glass flying everywhere.... Good Times :D
