Dead monitor

One of the LCD monitors that I use for a rolling display of time, temperature and server performance, died.

The Raspberry Pi suffered a kernel panic, and when I rebooted the Pi, there was no display. On investigation, it turned out that the monitor had died.

No biggie.

I remember buying a 12 inch CGA (320 by 200 pixels if you wanted four colours) for £400.
Today on Ebay, I bought a 17 inch 1280 by 1024 pixels, 16 million colours flat panel display for £18, including delivery.

 ... later ...

The monitor arrived. Although the title and description said that it had a DVI interface, it doesn't. I've emailed the vendor to see what can be done.
