The monitor is unofficially dead. Luckily, the monitor is still under warranty, so I will call tomorrow and try to get an RMA. Unfortunately, the nearest service center is down south in Cerritos; I was hoping that one would be somewhere here in the bay area. I need to go back and see if my old IBM “Death Star” drive has a one year or three year warranty on it. Too late to save the data, but at least I could get a 60GB replacement hard drive.
Well, I guess I have the night to catch up on reading and stuff. I pray that nothing else gets broken on my machine.
