    Okay so I got home today and noticed my screen was automatically turning off and on in 5 second intervals. My computer is running fine its just the screen... Then I noticed what looked like cat pee running down the side of my computer next to the power button which is a touch button. I cleaned it up and made sure the VGA cable and power cable were all in place. The cat pee didn't appear to get anywhere but the side of the screen and the ground. Unfortunately I don't have another screen to check if its working or not.

    I have a Aoc 24 inch lcd monitor
    And running it through a VGA cable
    product name: 2434pw

    I'm running windows 7

    Is my computer screen seriously broken after this!!

    (Smudge) My cats life is in your hands now haha

    Something must have gotten into it for it to break. You could try taking it apart and cleaning it inside. You have pretty much have nothing to loose as a warranty won't cover this

    There may be some screws hiding behind a sticker, but it may just use clips and the screen has to be popped apart.
