A strange thing just happened with one of my monitors today. I was using it when suddenly I noticed that the screen had somehow been burnt. What I mean by that is a "ghost" or embossed image of one of the applications I had open has been burnt into the monitor screen. Interestingly, the desktop icons on my desktop was also burnt into the screen as well. This is similar to what you might see with old monitors years ago after they sit for very long periods of time with text on the screen. A "ghost" image of the text would eventually burn into the screen. I guess that could happen to new monitors, too, but I was doing stuff when it this happened. Some of what I was doing did involve taking screen captures (using Print Screen and Alt + Print Screen). What could've caused this to happen suddenly on a newer LCD monitor? Is the monitor just going bad? I've only had the monitor a couple of years, and I bought it brand new. It's a Sceptre 19'' LCD monitor running at 60Hz scan and 1280x1024 resolution.
