Oh, yeah. Just like a car problem or a pain, you get to the shop or doc, and everything works just fine.
You are probably better with the new screen.
Now lets hope the video card doesn't freak out.


I feel much better; this morning the monitor is acting up.

In the video card - I made sure i got a monitor that has both DVI-D and VGA hookups, so I should be alright. I really don't want to spend 1/3-1/2 the cost of the monitor on a new video card if I don't have to!


Maybe your monitor has the same problem (only different) that my (flat screen) monitor has--a bug. Literally. I noticed a few months ago a dot on the screen. I assumed that a glitch had developed and that the electrons just weren't getting through to that spot. Eventually, I noticed that the spot was migrating upward. Even more eventually, I realized that the spot is a bump--under the covering of the screen. A teensy tinesy bug gave its life to exploration. How in the heck could it do that? I dunno.


I don't think the electronics were ever cobbled together too well. I've always had a problem with it shutting off if the position of the power cable isn't to its liking (and considering the monitor has no "Off" button, shutting off means it actually loses the electrical connection). Of course, this could just be a really buggy house.


I thought that my printer was the only electronics without an "on/off" switch. It must have been a phase that the industry was going through in that era--about 1998 or 1999, on the printer.
