O.T. - Acer Monitor Goes Black


S

Stefan Patric

Three and a half years ago I bought an Acer 19" LCD monitor. I had no
problems with it until a few days ago, and then it started going black.
I'd turn it off and back on and it would work for a day, then the same
thing.
Finally it stayed black.
How long should these monitors last?
I use it at home and it's on four or five hours a day M - F. Longer on
weekends.
Connect the monitor to another computer (or two) and see if it does the
same thing. If it does, then, most likely, it's the monitor. Take it to
a tech and have him determine what's wrong. If the monitor works fine,
then it's the computer.

Swinging the hammer a little slow these days? <G>

Harbor Freight has a nice little and inexpensive pneumatic palm hammer
that's just the thing for doing dastardly deeds, such as removing old
bathroom tile down to the steel mesh backing.
It would make short work of an LCD display. (Wear gloves and goggles
though!)

A CRT display is a different story. A 32 pistol at 20 feet is about
right.
Thanks for the advice. I am not so knowledgeable about useful hand
tools.

And IIRC, Harbor Freight does mail order sales. I'll do it!

OK, fine. I didn't use the words precisely. But you know what I meant.
True - but you used those imprecise words to contradict the more precise
description I had just posted.

Now how could I let you get away with that? :)

To be anal about it, in the above case, the life expectancy would actually
be however long you've had it, *plus* 27 seconds.
True.

Although, if you're already standing over it with a hammer, are you
mulling it over for 25 seconds and then 2 seconds for the mechanics of the
swing?
Yeah. The situation was well covered by charlie, though - he points out
that I am slow and that there are useful tools to improve the response
time for those like me.

OK, so I should have added for any one particular item or person, which
was my intent. Of course, you failed to mention that I did provide an
average life span for the monitor, which is "as long as the warranty"
and that was suppose to be both a statistical average and FUNNY! Come
on, guys!
Well, yes, it *was* funny. And probably true as well.

I did say I didn't want to offend - but obviously I failed again :)

To be redundant all over again: I really just wanted to be picky, and I
really agreed with your post and your humor.
