  1. I had brought a magnet near the monitor of my PC and now there appears a sort of black shadow on the screen.I am confused so as how to take proper action. I also use a screen filter.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    In your monitor controls, does it have a degauss option?

    If so use it.

    If not, power off the monitor using the monitors power switch and unplug the power cable. Leave it off for a while, overnight would be better.

    Plug it back up and turn on the power, this should run the monitors degauss coils. And don`t ever put a magnet near the monitor again.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
