Monitor

Last night I returned from a lovely trip to MA intending to take a quick nap and play some CoH before going to bed. I took my nap and kaisilverwolf used my computer to look at 3d computer models of naked people.
She woke me in time for the gathering of people on CoH, I started to log into the game and my monitor went black. No sound, no flicker, just went dark. I tried rebooting, I checked all the connections, the monitor was just blank. The power button still glowed green, I pressed it, nothing happened. I unpluged it and plugged it back in, the power button went dark and nothing I could do would make it glow green again.
I hooked up the old monitor from my other computer and went to the Dell site, fully prepared to have them tell me I'm out of warantee and I have to buy a new one. I connected quickly in Dell Chat and the tech took me through all the questions he had to ask for around 1.5 hours. I was happily surprised at the end of that conversation when he asked me for my shipping information and told me my replacement would be there in 2-3 days. Yay! Free! I just have to ship back the old one.
