I dont know which type you have but here is how to clean either:

CRTs
Those big chunky CRT monitors have glass screen which are easily cleaned. The important thing to remember is that you don’t ever want to spray any liquid directly on the screen. Instead, spray the cloth with water or a mild window cleaning solution then wipe the screen. You can use the same damp cloth to clean the entire monitor case, as well. If you prefer, you can also use moistened paper towels to clean CRT monitors, You will be only cleaning the outside of the monitor case and screen. Never open the monitor casing which contain electric voltage that can cause a shock.

Flat Panel LCDs
LCD monitors are often called flat panel monitors because they are flat and thin. These are the types of screens that are used in most laptop computers, and they are also becoming very popular for desktop computers. LCD screens are softer than CRT glass screens, so they require some extra tender loving care. Keep your fingers and sharp objects away from these screens since they are susceptible to damage and scratches.
Use a soft dry cotton cloth to remove fingerprints and smudges from the screen. If this does not completely remove the dirt and splotches, use a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on the cleaning cloth that has been dampened with water. (A small amount of vinegar can be substituted for the isopropyl alcohol.) Again, spray the liquid on the cloth and never directly onto the screen. Do not use paper towels on an LCD screen as they can scratch the screen. Never use ammonia, ammonia-based cleaners, or strong cleaners which can cause the surface to yellow and become brittle.
It is good to have a special clean cloth that is dedicated to use on the LCD screen. Don’t pick up any old rag, as dirt particles in the rag can scratch the surface of the screen. Special LCD cleaning cloths are available and can be an excellent investment.

You can use window cleaner but apply the cleaner to a rag do not spray it onto the monitor.

Newspaper works very well and leaves no streaks.

Easynote Argo C DVD not working, in fact it does not read CD , but it reads DVD


If its under warranty call your dealer or the company, otherwise..Try cleaning the Laser head using a cleaner CD and cleaning solution liquid. If still not working you have to open it and clean the laser head manually using ear buttonetes and alcohol 95o solution or some window cleaner. Assemble it again and connect it back to the computer. ** If you dont know how to do this DONT try it**
If you go to a specialist he/she will charge you a price equal or higher than buying a new DVD. So if everything fails buy a new one.

How do you properly clean the screen?


Do not use Windex or any glass cleaner. Use plain water and a very soft cloth or you can buy a cleaner especially formulated for an LCD screen. Do not press hard and turn the monitor off before cleaning. On an older CRT monitor you can use anything you would use to clean a glass window.

I have water stains on my monitor! How do i fix it.


First off, NEVER USE WATER OR WINDEX OR ANY NORMAL HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS TO CLEAN ANY LCD DISPLAY. You need a special cleaner made specifically for those. Just cleaning it with the special cleaner will solve the problem if the water stains are on the outside of the monitor's screen. If the stains are inside, unfortunetly there is not much to do except bring it to your local technician and hope he can fix it. If he cannot, try to get it replaced under warranty or buy a new one.

They come with a microfiber cleaning cloth that works great!
Go to your neareast electronics or office supply store. Just ask for an LCD screen cleaner. The above pic is one that is sold at best buy, radioshack, and other stores.

Computer monitor needs cleaning


Use window cleaner, like Windex. Spray it on a towel, preferably a soft cloth one, and wipe the screen down when it's off. Try not to press too hard in any one spot, either :).
