Well, I sprung for the 19 inch flat CRT monitor at the local computer store. Here I am three days of use and it just blew up on me. Tried to load up a game, the monitor clicks as usual to change resolution for the game, then it clicked a few more times needlessly, the power light went off and it refuses to come back on. Tried new power coords, re-attaching to video card, nothing seems to help...
Nice investment, these things...
Are you suggesting that coconuts migrate?

I phoned CTX UK who checked the warranty details and said the monitor was older than it should have been. Quite how that works I don't know, but I guess it was reconditioned. They replaced it even though it was technically out of warranty with a better model (newer) that served me well until earlier this month when I retired it. The point I'm trying to make is if you have no joy with your retailer, contact CTX directly.
I'm sorry it's self-destructed though
Hope you get it fixed,

My dad had a 17" Belinea about 4 years ago and was faulty from day one. He sent that back and had that replaced with a gorgeous 17" Belinea with a flat screen (that was so nice)... but died after about 3 years, and then when he had that replaced, they sent him a 22" beast!!!!
He has had it for about a year and it is great (for the time being).
I guess these days, you cannot trust monitors to keep on going... I have found that the older monitors are great (my 5 year old IBM G70 and 7 year old Compaq 472P are still running).
