Monitor Poofed Out

Last night, I was on the computer when a transformer nearby blew, and I lost power. A few hours later, power was restored....everything booted back up, except my monitor.

I kept pressing the power button, but nothing worked. I tried different outlets, hoding down the power button for several seconds.....nothing.

I plugged in a 15" monitor that wasn't being used, and it works fine....even used the cables hooked up to the computer and they worked fine.

I had no trouble with this monitor the past 5yrs. It was a Sceptre Komodo 19" monitor with built in speakers.

sounds stupid and i should keep out, but could it be the fuse thats been blown in the plug after the transformer blew.

Talked to a friend of mine. He mentioned a few solutions, could be anything from an easy fix to the motherboard going out, which will cost me about what the monitor costs to fix.

Well, since it has been a while since I updated y'all, the past month I have been using my mom's 15" lcd monitor. She has a computer, but does not use it at all.

Right now I am waiting on my new monitor to arrive....a 21.5" wide screen monitor. So far, UPS hasn't arrived yet to deliver it. Here is a link to the one I decided to buy.
