The monitor on my system is playing up, it's a Medion 15" TFT, It's still under warranty and I've spoken to them and it looks like it'll need to go in. They reckon up to 28 days to fix it or replace it, there'll be an uprising in this house if we've got no PC for a month. So I was going to look in the local free paper for one for about £15-20 or so, e-bay haven't got any in my area p&p is prohibitive. Can a normal portable TV be used? If so how? TR
Alternatively, I have an old Compaq monitor you can have for the postage only. If you reckon the postage is £15 that's what you can have it for. email me your address if you want it and I will get it off to you immediately.
TommyRed, Ebay is the only place where you're likely to pick up a reasonable monitor for the price you want to pay. I have just checked "completed items" i.e. what monitors have previously sold for - £5, £10, £15 etc. One seller is advertising good quality 15 inch monitors delivered to your door for £29.99. If you're not familiar with Ebay, don't be put off, every day thousands of people in this country buy and sell their items and are very pleased with the transaction.
No computer for a month is worse than the wife coming back WITH the mother-in-law. I have e-mailed pj123 to take him up on his kind offer of the compaq for the cost of the postage. BTW I live in Wrexham, North Wales right on the border. TR
