Hello, any inputs are greatly appreciated. Thank you

I have a old computer monitor which I used for 10 years, and it begin to worn out. Lately, I noticed a crack line on the outside cover of the monitor (besel). It is Not on the screen therefore it have no effect on my screen display, so I still continue to use it. But.. I was wondering are there any dangerous if I continue to use it like this?

Here is a pic, please give me your inputs. Thanks

You shouldn't have any issues continuing to use it, but I'd highly recommend replacing it, with a LCD, especially if you're on Windows 7.  Mostly because Windows 7 has more options for adjusting your picture other than adjusting the resolution.

The outside plastic is called "bezel", I think
Thank you so much,
Right now I am short on money, so it is great news that I can still continue to use it.
I was worried that it might exploded or something, LOL!

I will save up money to buy LCD, I like it too, but now the cheapest LCD is $100
Thanks again,

As long as you don't bounce it or get water in it you should be fine.

 

New Egg has some refurbished HP monitors for $50.  These are most likely lease returns, judging from the PCs I've seen them offer as refurbs.
