    In this thread, you post pictures of your broken monitors.


    My only Mac:

    My friend gave it to me(after punching it)! It was his old iMac G5.

    Take the stand off, flip it and put it down on its face. Then slide it underneath a surface, and on top, place a monitor. Plug everything in and you've got a slim, desktop Mac that sits flat.

    They Had Mini VGA I Think.

    No 'Real' Monitors, But a Couple Phone Screens, and way too many PSP Screens (Bastards to take out, crack them as im doing it, or sitting down with them in my pocket)

    I don't have a broken monitor to post

    And I don't generally keep my broken computers around long enough to take pictures of them and post them.

    I never took pictures of my old CRT when it died.
    My father had an LCD die on him, but he didn't take any pictures either.

    In both cases it would've been boring to look at anyway since they were both simply not displaying anything or wouldn't turn on.

    I got a Mini DVI to VGA adapter and sometimes hook it up to my other LCD tv(use it as computer monitor usually.) I got used to the crack on the screen. So I use that screen as my main screen.

    I've posted this one on this forum a couple of times. I felt it was worthy of a repost.

    I had insurance on that somehow and got a decent chunk back too. So not a complete loss.

    How did you crack the screen that bad without breaking the hinges? Or scratching the paint?

    I was carrying this from class (at the end of the day grrrr) in that neoprene case. So that explains the scratches. And the Titanium's weren't known for their case rigidity, so the screen could easily warp enough along with the case. Plus it landed screen side down. The DVD-Rom drive was broken in the fall too.

    God, I hate seeing broken TiBooks. It pains me enough to use mine daily with it's snapped left hinge and dying right hinge.

    I hate seeing any mac computer not being able to function, i have a perfectly good g4 at work that a client did not want to fix because the LCD panel had lines down it. I plan on getting a new panel later for it.
