    I am not sure if this is the right area, but I have browsed through all the places and sadly clueless.

    I have a westinghouse flat screen monitor Model LCM 17v2ls and I cannot located the plug.
    I want to use it as the temporary monitor since my MAC OS screen cracked and it costs over 300 to replace.

    I went to radio shack and they could not find the right type of powerplug. I just need some direction I will also call Westinghouse on Monday but any support would be great.

    Thanks

    Welcome to Techguy! Don't feel bad about not knowing everything; we all suffer from that. Generally, monitors either use a standard 3 prong power connector just like your computer, or an external AC adapter, i.e. a power brick. Yours uses a brick. I did a quick search online, and found at least one vendor selling them: http://www.lcdpayless.com/productpage.php?productId=4794. However I don't know them, so don't take this as an endorsement. You might also find adapters on eBay. As long as you stick with top-rated vendors, I wouldn't be afraid to buy. You can also search more online using "westinghouse LCM 17v2ls power adapter" (no quotes) as your search string.
