    A small fly (fruit fly?) has not only managed to get into my tft monitor but has died virtually in the middle of the screen :mad:

    Is there any way to get rid of the thing as copious shaking and even judicious use of a vacuum cleaner haven't made it move an inch.

    Any suggestions to remove it will be greatfully accepted but please no comments on 1) sending it to be debugged or 2) put a spider in there. Not because they aren't amusing, its just that they won't be amusing if I have to read them for a fourth time!

    Many thanks...

    A can of compressed air might work. I got a couple in one of my screens last summer but they just fell out after a few days.

    Leave it alone for a bit, they dry and shrink after awhile.
