theres a thing that the computer automatically does called Degaussing which fixes that on a lower scale. but if you go as far as to actually put a magnet up, yeah... youre basically screwed.

pretty colors, tho!

Get a sock and rub it until it's loaded with static electricity then wipe the static off the monitor. There's a very stupid story behind how I know that.

There actually is a tool to fix this. We use it quite often in vending since some games that come in have messed up monitors. I forget what its called, but its like a big, thin doughnut that you plug in. You hold a button down and wave it around the front of the screen. Viola, poblem solved. My teacher uses his personal one to fix peoples tv's at $50 a pop. He says its a great way to make money cause people think its majic :rolleyes:
