    I was working on my comp...and I left and by the time i came back my monitor was off. So i thought it just went on standby so i pressed any key and it made the sound indicating its gonna come on...but it never did...and some funny buzzing noises started to come. I shut off my monitor and turned it back on ...to see if my desktop would come...(it usually works) but this time it didnt. This happened before....back when i had the warranty they said that the fuse blew...and replaced it.

    I want to know where I can purchase a fuse from and how much it'll cost me.

    My monitor is a CRT 17'.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are at least 137 different fuse types/shapes.

    Until you locate the fuse (if thats even the problem) you will never know which size/type/shape you need.

    There is no such thing as a "monitor fuse". There are fuses that will fit monitors. Depending what sort the monitor requires.

    Fuses can blow due to "inrush current" when no real fault exists and where the fuse rating is inappropriate. However they usually blow in response to a fault, so replacing the fuse under these conditions simply blows the new fuse.
