Is it possible that my computer is killing my monitors?

by on April 15, 2009

Q: Is it possible for my computer to cause my monitor to go out? I have had two monitors quit working but they were older type monitors so I am not sure if they were just old or there is something else causing them to quit working. I ordered a new monitor but I am worried about hooking it up if there is something wrong with the computer.

    Just make sure you have your pc and monitor hooked up to a decent surge protector.

    Also, I’d suggest you avoid pouring water on it, or dropping it down the stairs : )

    Beyond that your monitor will be covered under your manufacturer’s warranty, and might be covered under warranty provisions of your credit card.
