Argiris Papadopoulos says:

If you connect a drive and it doesn’t show up, while another does show up, does it mean the former HDD is busted? Im asking because thats the situation im facing right now. An old IBM 2.1 GB HDD works fine while 80gb WD800 doesnt.

I recently bought a led/lcd flat 24 inch Acer monitor. When I installed my monitor at home; I realised that I bought unnecessary size of monitor. Now I started to feel that I bought a quite bigger monitor.
I noticed that I have a HDMI and DVI port – now my question is –  can I use my flat monitor as TV? If you have already discussed on this can you provide a link to your video.
Do you know I have a adapter which I don’t find in my office flat monitor – Why?
