Maybe some one who knows a bit about computers can help me figure out why my monitor screen is covered with scratches,The glass is clean but it looks as though slugs have been crawling all over the glass leaving trails:confused:
The monitor is 3yrs old and has View Sonic as a brand name,was bought at Staples.Thanks for any info..

Is a CRT or LCD monitor?

If it's a CRT there could be a problem with the phosphor coating on the inside of glass. It can sluff and when this happens your monitor should be repurposed as a doorstop or yard art.
