Yeah my dang gateway 2000 crystal screen moniter started spitting out smoke last night and did the vertical line of doom before blacking out. I unplugged it and shut the computer off and disconnected it the hard way to prevent further fire hazards. Still smells like burning plastic in my comp room but everything else is fine. -knocks on wood-

Oh goodie, oldfart moniter hunting agains~! =___=

So yeah, wont be stalking the forums as I usually do til I get a new one...which I pray is SOON. Cause I got soo many damn pics to scan and I WONT scan em at the library. -shifty eyes.-

So til then, be crazy without me unless its a weekday and im not distracted by KH or DP artwork. -rolls off cursing all the way- Only on the friggin holidays, wonderful year this is turning out to be! Dx

Hmmm I've had the moniter for god knows how long. (2007 ish, but it was already used when I got my hands on it) It's been with me for awhile so im not surprised that it's calling it quits now. My previous moniter was just as old too. Hopefully I can get more than one moniter; that way if another one kicks the bucket on me; I can pull out the next one and not go through this headache of comp withdrawl again. xP

Can't tell ya...I finally retired my decade-old dinosaur ('puter) over two years ago, and went to a laptop...I just couldn't deal with the slowness of its very much outdated processor in dealing with the higher byte demands of present-day apps and internet browsing...

I got good years out of it, tho...
