    and coupled with busy days, I didn't make time to come onto the forums. Basically, now it takes days for the monitor to be able to be booted up after i turn it off for like a couple hours or more. Still need to hold the power button and watch the power light slowly turn on, then flickering fast, before finally turning on.

    For now, i changed the power settings to "never turn off monitor". Hopefully that will work. And, no, unfortunately, I'm quite broke right now...not enough for another monitor that actually works fine..

    Try ebay, find one in your area with pick up. Working CRT screens are like $20-50.
