Re: [crt/lcd] Possibly Scratched LCD Monitor

That looks more like a "burn" or a "hole" in the screen (assuming you're referring to the white portion). If so, your USB cable did not damage it. See this thread for what the likely cause is (see what Aranarth See Profile said):

his warranty is voided since he did abuse it by hitting it with the USB cable

Well, does your car at least turn into something else? Sometimes I turn it into a trashcan. Hmm...

Hitting an LCD with a USB cable would not cause the problem I referenced -- what it looks like is the TFT array or colour film wearing away (possibly as a result of misaligned lighting inside of the monitor, i.e. it's being gradually burnt through). Please see how common TFT LCDs are layered: »www.plasma.com/classroom/what_is_tft_lcd.htm -- also worth watching:

What I'm saying: I strongly doubt his USB cable mishap would have damaged the monitor in the fashion demonstrated via the photo. Otherwise, he should take a more accurate photo to depict the problem. :P
