Maybe it's stopped working because, like me, it's overheated. Try pouring it a nice cool beer, that might work. Although i'm having to settle for nice cool water until 6pm

You're not going to know until you've tried another monitor, but if the standby light isn't even coming on, then it's a reasonably safe to make the assumption that it has indeed passed over to monitor heaven (or hell, depending on how well it treated you).

Cool! That's way cheaper than a new monitor or video card.
