how can you tell if a ceramic fuse is blown??(cardboard is covering glass)

i have a fuse that might be blown causing one of my monitors to be non-funtioning.

i took the monitor apart and didnt see anything out of order so i then looked for the fuse. the fuse's glass part is covered by a cardboard type paper, how can i tell if it's blown???

For an intct fuse: with the circuit powered up you should have a voltage drop of zero across the fuse.

I'm now confused... is it the monitor or the computer with the problem?

BTW: Monitors can have enough stored power to kill you even when unplugged!
