The marker companies sometimes use different solvents but generally, if any of them is used on a non-porous surface, whisky will take them off. Don't ask me how, I found out that would remove drafting ink from plastic media years ago. Later on I figured out that plain isopropanol will do the same job--leaving the whisky for better purposes.

Isopropanol "should" be safe for plastic display screens, it is in most screen cleaners. Some absorbent scratch-free (Bounty) paper towels really helps. Other brands may scratch, especially the ones with recycled fiber content.

And of course if you have a shiny glass screen--then you're golden, the isoprop and anything soft will get the marker off. Even stronger solvents will be safe if the screen is glass. I think GoofOff specifically says it removed markers, that's the gentler one of the yellow "goo" removers, IIRC.
