Yes, it does appear as if there is a loose connection somewhere inside, or a faulty IC chip. However, I wouldn't recommend opening it up, as there can be any number of reasons why this can be happening, and if you have no prior experience, there is no point opening it up. I recommend getting it serviced, or purchase a new monitor...whichever works out cheaper for you.

My E173FP Dell monitor keeps popping up a menu box and I can't make it stop. Any suggestions?


There must be somethng shorting out the menu button. To troubleshoot, the monitor needs to be opened and the button board and cable needs to be checked for problems.

Here you go!
From Dell website:
'OSD Lock': Controls user access to adjustments. When 'Yes' (+) is selected, no user adjustments are allowed. All buttons are locked except the menu button.
All buttons can be locked or unlocked when the 'Menu' button is pushed and held for over 15 seconds. See more here:

This could be either down to an internal fuse blown or the main board or the capacitor on the power supply could be faulty.

E173FP 17" LCD Monitor Problem


I have the same problem. It seems like a virus to me, but my anti-virus doesn't find anything. I went to the main menu on the moniter and changed the display time to five seconds and locked the OSD display. Now all the appears is a smaller box showing a lock which goes out in five seconds. It is still annoying, but less intrusive then before. Hopefully, some one will determine a permanent fix for this problem.
