Is that plasma leakage? It feels warm when I touch it but it is not on the outside of the monitor.

Advice please. th_DSCF1044.jpg

If it's a plasma screen monitor, than it might be =p

Although, I've never seen one.

Its an LCD screen. I said plasma by mistake. Still, should I be worried? I can't afford a new monitor at the moment.

If it's constantly like that, then it probably needs replacement. But of course there are still a few things to check. Make sure the cables have a solid connection as always.

I have checked this already. I tried both a VGA and a DVI cable. Both with the same result. I would try a HDMI cable but I don't want to get a converter just for checking if this is a issue or not.

(My graphics card has a HDMI connection on it which has so far, been unused).

cant you put up a monotone solid color, what you got there loks like a glowing ground flare during an attack and the leakage looks like clouds at night. I will stick with CRT as long as possible, less waste, less energy to toss them away so soon,

In point of fact, that "glowing ground glare" is actually meant to be a sun, with the Destiny (ship from SGU) passing by it, but that is besides the point of this thread, lol. :lulz:

Here is a cleaer picture with just a flat blue background. It wouldn't show up on a white background too well.
