Monitors, otherwise known as displays or screens, currently come in two formats: LCD and Trinitron ("the boxy thingy").
LCD pros: Flat, low radiation (as far as I know) LCD cons: displays can either come with or develop "dead pixels" - pixels that remain a solid color or display black, are very fragile - pressing the display surface is not "healthy" for the display
Trinitron pros: deep color Trinitron cons: relatively moderate-to-medium radiation
Both types of displays can suffer from "screen burn" - if an image is displayed for too long (several hours/days) it will permanently "burn" itself into the display and be visible at all times.

Pros and Cons of Laptop and Desktop Computers

When netbooks arrived in early 2008, hardly anybody imagined that they could be such a viable alternative to laptops and desktops. While it is not serious to say that netbooks with all their numerous advantages will make laptops and desktops history, it is a fact that the sales of netbooks are skyrocketing. Still, desktops, not to mention laptops, are far from becoming history.

Both laptops and desktops have their advantages and disadvantages, as it will be discussed in this article. If the reader is interested in the advantages and disadvantages of netbooks, or is eager to learn about the final decision what computer to buy, he or she should check the respective articles in this series.
The Advantages of Laptops

Laptops have many advantages over netbooks and desktops and here are some of them:

* Easier to carry. Laptops are not as heavy as a desktop computer and they are easier to carry. Still, there is no doubt that compared to a netbook, they are as heavy as a rock.
* Compact, yet large enough. In comparison to a 7” netbook, the screen of a laptop is much more convenient for work and fun.
* More powerful than netbooks. As it was mentioned in the previous article about the advantages and disadvantages of netbooks, netbooks were not designed to be powerful gaming stations or design studios. Still, depending on the tasks a user wants to use the computer for, a netbook might be too weak and in such cases a laptop is definitely better.

The Disadvantages of Laptops

Laptops have disadvantages as well and here are some of them:

* The most expensive choice. All equal, a laptop is more expensive than a desktop/netbook with similar parameters. However, the most expensive netbooks are more expensive than a laptop with similar parameters.
* Less ergonomic than a desktop. Laptops were designed to be portable computers, not marvels of ergonomic design. Neck pain and problems with the wrists/fingers are not unheard of when a laptop is used for 10 or more hours a day. There are special stands and other appliances, which help deal with the ergonomic issues, if they become a big problem, so it is not fair to say that a laptop/netbook leads to serious long-term skeletal injuries.
* Easier to steal. In comparison to desktops, a laptop is easier to steal. This applies to netbooks as well.

The Advantages of Desktops

Since good old desktops are still on the market, they must have some really cool advantages. Yes, this is so and here are some of them:

Carpal Solution Works in 6 Weeks Awarded Top Medical Product- $79.95
Madix Workstations
Durable Technical Furniture That Is Attractive, & Easily Assembled.

* The cheapest alternative (for the same technical characteristics). All equal, when a netbook, a laptop, and a desktop computer are compared, desktops are the cheapest buy. The difference (for similar technical parameters) could be up to 50% or even more. Even barebone Mini PCs, which are generally more expensive, are still cheaper than laptops.
* Large screen. There is hardly a person who plans to use a netbook and even a laptop for desktop publishing, CAD design or any similar activity where monitor size matters. But even if a user doesn't plan to turn his or her computer into a design studio, the larger the monitor, the higher the productivity.
* The monitor, the case, and the keyboard are separate. This advantage is really important because if one piece breaks, this (usually) doesn't affect the others. With netbooks and laptops when the monitor or the keyboard breaks, this usually means that either the whole computer is trashed, or that external devices must be connected (even if this is possible at all, it is a bit clumsy).

The Disadvantages of Desktops

The main disadvantages of desktops are related to their large size and sometimes lack of advanced features:

* Heavy and bulky. The size and weight of a desktop configuration are its major disadvantage. A desktop configuration takes a lot of space and is difficult to transport. Yes, there are mini PCs, which are half or quarter the size of a typical desktop but in terms of price they cost much more than a typical desktop and that is why they are not taken into account.
* Requires a separate monitor. When a user is upgrading his or her old PC, it is quite probable that there is an old monitor, which can be used with the new configuration as well. However, when a user buys his or her first PC, if the decision is to buy a desktop, it is necessary to buy not only the case and the machinery inside it, but also a separate monitor. Though there are great monitors for $300 or less, generally a separate monitor is not cheap and an average monitor could cost as much as a whole netbook.
* Could be without wireless. Even recent desktop motherboards don't always have wireless connectivity. Well, this is hardly a problem because there are many other types of connectivity but if your provider offers nothing but wireless, this could be a (minor) problem. Needless to mention, there are tons of workarounds of the lack of wireless issue.

Similarly to netbooks, laptops and desktops also have their advantages and disadvantages a buyer must consider when choosing what computer to buy.

My ve208t asus monitor blank after 15-30 seconds..power to fix?

The Deal with monitors, PC techs do not repair defective monitors. Best advice to you is to check the warranty. If it's active, most likely the manufacture ASUS will give you a shipping label so they can repair it. I've ran into monitor problems such as the one your are currently facing and I have attempted to repair it myself. The disadvantage on my part, was that the manufacture would not ship the burnt out circuit board which I had identified and I had no choice but to ship it to them. Monitors are pretty much out of our control.

What are the possible disadvantages of computer monitors?

a CRT monitor, those big glass ones , that are as deep as they are wide, those ones i personally think give better picture and seem better when watching movies, because there is less tearing of the picture (when it lags behind the sound)

both LCD and CRT monitors are going to use more power when attached to a laptop than the laptops built in screen.

usually a computer monitor can be a higher resolution (more desktop real estate) than a laptop screen.

beyond that, there arent many downsides to having a monitor attached to your PC. - i guess another disadvantage of a computer monitor is that they don't float in water, they are heavy to carry , and don't fit in your pocket, however, that all also applies to the desktop computer itself.

Resolution is not set to minimum 1024 X 768 pixels

this is not a problem this is a disadvantage of an internal display card of the motherboard .Install an AGP card into an AGP slot then you can see the higher resolution.
