PC Monitor appears to be done for

by okstate1212 / January 23, 2017 10:11 PM PST

The lines appeared after transferring my monitor back home from work. I'm assuming during the car ride the monitor took a hit which created the problem.

Is there anyway of fixing this at home?
Are there any parts that could be ordered for an at home repair?
Is it a lost cause?

Any suggestions welcome.
Thank you all for your time!

Try a different input to the monitor.

No adapters....straight cable gpu>monitor.

Take the monitor back to work and test it.
