By has an old monitor - Germany - Berlin
Today, the family computer's 15-year-old CRT monitor which gives me headaches finally stopped working. My dad quickly found a replacement: an even older CRT monitor that gives me worse headaches. FML

No fuck you, you are saying shit because he felt sorry? I don't care what the pseudo-rules are here! Down voting is supposed to used for hateful or overly vulgar comments, not "rule breakers". You and most everyone else on here fucking disgusts me.

to buy a brand new fancy monitor is not exactly the cheapest expense. I completely understand the older technology price and how it can be miserable to use, but breaking it isn't the most mature response

If it really bothers OP that much they should talk to their parents about it. Better solution than breaking someone else's property. That is just my opinion though

My parents used to have one of those old CRT monitors to. When I was 13 I decided screw it, went out and bought them a new LCD monitor that didn't have the annoying high pitched sound. And those things used to be like $200. Now you can get LED ones for as low as $30 that I've seen. Hell, go on Craigslist and you can find LCD screens in the "free" listings even.

I doubt it's about the money. You can buy a brand new LCD for less than a 100 euros if you don't care too much about quality. Sometimes yo ucan even get them for free if you do some research. Some people are just throwing away their old hardware. They'd be happy to give an old LCD to someone.
It's probably just an unhealthy mix of IT ignorance and stubbornness.

Put a strong magnet inside. It will deflect the electron beam which will distort the image. You could also glue it to the screen but then your father would probably find it.

30: Can bypass anything like that anyway. Windows hides the options so you don't break anything but they are there, Linux you can set it yourself via config file so supported or not it will push it out.


Sure, you can bypass the windows options but I'm talking about an actual limitation where if you set it too high the ancient hardware can't cope and the display just gets all messed up.

okay you need to find a way to get rid of it in a way it can't be traced back to you. My sister had a recorder one time and she sucked at it. So what I did was hide it in her closet which is an absolute mess. Technically still in her possession and can't be traced back to me, fyi she hasn't found it in months. Try something like that !


That's a terrible thing to do...especially to your sister. You can't become good at something without sucking at first..feel bad for her and you should be a better brother and support her..

@68 have you ever heard a recorder being played? There is no getting good at it, you go from exploding ears to if you're lucky bleeding ears. But with a recorder there is no good.

mind you're damn business #68 I'm a great brother, me and my sister are best friends. That's just the one thing I can't stand her doing so I did something about it.
