Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

I have a Princeon Monitor attached to a dell computer- been using it for about 2 years with no problem. I usually leave both computer and monitor open at night. Last night, there was an electrical storm which knocked out electricity in the neighborhood. This AM the computer went on but I cannot get the monitor to open.There is no light on the start button. Is there a solution to this?


Answers :

Mmmm not a good thing. Ive had this happen to me before. Knocked out my COMPUTER, MONITOR, AND TV! Well it could have shorted your monitor, you can get it fixed, but mind as well pay for a new one. As long as the one you have now is not really that expensive, but you could probably get it fixed for around 80$.. I wouldnt recommend it to be a "Do it yourself job" I would call some tv repair shops.
