    A member of my family accidentally got some marker (Sharpie) on his beautiful (formerly Dell) 2405 monitor, and I was wondering if anyone here has any advice on how to clean the screen without damaging it.

    A product I sell called Acrysol might work, but I am afraid to have the family member try it because it is a solvent, and might be way too strong.

    Any advice?

    There is an annoying black dot on the monitor, and I hope there is a way to clean it without damaging it.

    A geographical oddity
    I think a lot of folks without actual experience may be afraid to to answer, not wanting to risk responsibility for damage. I am one of them.

    That being said, I would suggest trying a "lighter" solvent first, and moving up the scale. That way you end up using the softest option. Also, I would wait a while after each application.

    I don't even touch my screen!

    Told (read shouted :eek: ) my GF off for touching it once and she wasn't happy!
