Just An Idea

Recommended Posts

Well, when my mom got a new computer, we put the old one in my room. The monitor is one of the old Windows '98 monitors, thick and white. Well, i was reading all these mods, and i was wondering, would it be possible to put some LED's in my Minitor in the back, so that the light wil shine out of the little cracks at the top?

Yes, you would just have to find an appropriate wire to pull power from and use the correct resistor

Be careful with the monitor open - shock hazard!

I am assuming you have a CRT monitor. If that is the case, these 2 articles from TwistedMods.com should help you. Remember, there is the risk of shocking yourself badly on the insides of a monitor. Procede with caution.

Looks pretty dangerous for just some simple lights - I knew a guy who got shocked by 240 Volts - knocked him temporarily and left some nasty burns
