MY SCREEN SUDDENLY WENT BLACK! July 5, 2010 crizlai Don’t you hate it when you have a tight deadline with a project and suddenly your screen went dead? The good news was that my monitor was in a tip top condition. Moreover, it’s one of the great models in the market with a great-looking, thin-bezel monitor that can swivel, tilt, pivot and be adjusted for height. However, I have a problem with the cables. It was not due to any factory defects or whatsoever but the availability of some pets in the household. They tend to be a bit too playful around cables and at times entangled within the maze of those cables. Sometimes while I was busily working on a proposal, my screen would just go black. One of them would have loosened the connectivity while cheekily playing the room. That was not the worst scenario until to date as I had woken up one fine morning to find my cables all being chewed up. Luckily, I have the habit of switching off all the live wires when I go to bed nightly. If not, the whole house might have burnt down by now. I’m in the midst of rewiring all my cables and wires to be pets and child safe very soon. At the mean time, I guessed I have to get more vga cables as backups just in case of any emergencies. I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
