I have a DELL LCD monitor that I've had for at least 2 years. But it's been raining here and water has been leaking through my apartment unit ceiling. I've had a towel that covered my desk to soak up the water, and I don't believe any water got through to the monitor. However, is it possible that the humidity and the cold temperature damaged the monitor?
I can't turn it on now. It's not the power cord either, as I'm using an extra monitor fine with the same cord. Should I have waited before trying to turn the monitor on (I heard it may fry if the condensation isn't completely dry).
FYI - it's not incredibly cold here, not sub-zero or anything, but maybe I can wait for it to warm up unless it's fried : (
Appreciate any thoughts.
