had the same, an ant got in between the lcd and plastic (protective I guess) cover.
figured it would find it's way out, next day still there, 2 days later sigh, still there
... so I figured try nudging it out: big mistake, dead ant stuck in not quite middle of the screen.
ok, crack open the screen (and of course left burrs in the edge/crack where I pried off the front bezel).
luckily plans to replace were already in place.
anyway - moral of the story: if there's a bug in your screen don't poke at it.
I seldom comment but this might be the reason they make that spray air
Shut the monitor off and douse the air openings with a liberal application of air
that gets cold I had a small spider that decided to keep warm inside my ProArt 27 inch
a little air and it decided to depart
We once had a customer that reported sporadic freezes and reboots. There did not seem to be any pattern to them and I was finally sent onsite to diagnose the problem. When I got there, I found a mouse nest inside the computer. One of those plates that cover the unused card slots on the back of the computer was missing and the critter was using that to get in and out. What makes this more amazing is that it was in a medical lab in a hospital!
It's a hard life, but somebody's got to live it if only to act as an inspiration to others.
