It's always on sundays, isn't it? Last summer my monitor decided to have a smoke break last summer. one beuatiful sunday morning I switched on my computer and nothing happened. Pushed the Power button again, nothing. Checked Keyboard connection (Apple computers used to have a On/Off key on the keyboard), solid. Though "Sh*t, my computer's gone! Pushed the light switch, ceiling light didn't work. This being a chandelier with 5 bulbs I decided the fuse had blown. Reset the breaker, switched on computer, everything works but the monitor. Dumped it (17" CRT, bought it at the flea market for 25 Euro )

Don't you just love them Chinese monitors!. I have an HP 17" LCD screen in front of me, that was made in the US. Can't beat good American workmanship!. I've had 3 China made monitors blow out on me in 3 years, usually it is the Switch-mode PS Chip that goes. I'm just sick of it!. This monitor cost me a dollar or two, but hey, I hope it out-does the other 3 I've had. All 3 monitors have had a 3.15A ceramic fuse protecting them, but not once has the fuse blown, when the SM chip blew (destructively).
