  1. For the past couple of days, my monitor has been like closing end and then turning black. But everything else is running, hard drive, video card ( the green light is on ) , etc.

    I checked everything, might be the cords or it could the monitor. Now i was told my monitor was dying, but i am online right now. Infact its been working all day today, no problems. Do you think its working fine, but do you think i need to buy a whole new monitor?

    Also, how do you open it up?

    I have one of those old gateway 2000 ev500 models>
