    Broken monitor

    Yep, yesterday I managed to shoot my monitor with my softgun. :shock: Accidentally of course. I didn't know it was loaded, so I barely had to put any pressure on the trigger. Picked it up, and bam, hit the top right corner of the screen.

    It cracked, and the right side is now mostly blank, but there does also appear to be some other fancy colours there.
    No need to say I will not be able to play again any time soon. I will have to order a new monitor first, which I think I'll do pretty soon, and I think I'll get a mic while I'm at it ;)

    - A frustrated LienK, from a windowed browser put on the left side of the screen :cry:

    WTF, you doing with a loaded shotgun?

    Did you scared the neighbours? :?

    SOFTgun not shotgun ^^
    with a shotgun the whole monitor would be wasted not just the right upper corner ^^

    YES Lienk, get yourself a Headset: that's a crucial clan equipment.

    damn misread, i was tired last night. :|

    but still


    well LienK, get yourself a good 19 inch monitor.
  5. Re: Broken monitor

    i thought so ^^
    indeed, :lol: =)

    If you can effort, get yourself a 21"+ Screen. 19" has the same resolution than 17" which is a bit low i think.

    Yaya, keep enjoying my misery. :x

    This monitor (the one I shot), is 22 inches (Resolution 1680 x 1050). And I've been very satisfied with it, so I think I'll get the same one again.

    22 inch, damn dude.

    Is it under warranty? how bad is the crack? If under warranty, read the small prints(Terms and Conditions) and you might be able to get a new one.

    (if the crack is not big)

    Does shooting it come under the cover of "accidental damage"? :P
  9. Re: Broken monitor

    sure it does.
  10. Re: Broken monitor

    haha i think the people who wrote the terms of use never tought about it would be shot :lol:
  11. Re: Broken monitor

    (but if you get one, remember not to shoot it xD)
