Hi guys, recently I acquired a monitor from my school, which the IT guy said he had no use for. I plugged it in and all seemed well, but after about 15-30 minutes of use I began to smell something strange coming from it. It's not what I would call a burning smell, but I am slightly concerned nonetheless. Other than that though, the monitor is working, and I am typing this now using it. I have since had the monitor running for 2 hours or so after I first noticed the smell, and it has been consistent, not getting either less noticeable or stronger.
The best way I could describe the smell is what I experienced from my new case, but this monitor is not in any way new, and I would estimate that they would have had a good 2-3 years of use.
In case you were wondering, the monitor is an ASUS vw202tr.
Thanks in advance, Walkingepidemic

Could be dust burning off at it has been moved, if it stays after a day or two, I would get it checked out as it could be a circuit burning and may be a fire hazard.
