well ive got this POS compaq monitor that i was using as a second display on my powerbook, but all of a sudden it stopped working...but occasionally worked when u hit it in the right spot. Now it just wont work at all. I think its a short. Think its safe for me to open it up and see if i can find anything wrong? any suggestions? ive got nothin to lose here so ill try anything really. I was actually thinking of throwing it out of a 10th story window or running it over with a steamroller, but i thought i might try fixing it first.

Yeah, I'd try fixing it. Sounds like a lose connection
