Auto Config Issue

About a year ago, tea was spilt on the bottom right corner of my monitor screen, affecting the monitor menu buttons. Among those buttons is an auto config button. Off and on throughout the months it will have these episodes of auto configging, where it interrupts what I am doing. I cannot see the bottom corner and middle of my screen while it does that. I know of no way to turn off auto config or mend this issue. Hopefully you can give me some assistance. In addition, could you recommend the idea of taking my monitor apart and viewing the surrounding area. If so, how do you take off the screen. Thanks for any assistance.

SOURCE: Auto Config????

Auto Config should (in theory) reposition the viewing area of the screen dependant on the resolution. So it fires up when the resolution your monitor is working at is different than the native one (1280x1024), if it's working in windows - set the resolution to 1280x1024 and it should work ok. right click on desktop>properties>settings p.s. also set the refresh rate to 60 hertz.

SOURCE: Auto Config Please Wait message

Each monitor has a menu option. Find out with your manual how to access your menu options for your specific model and in there is an option to display messages or warnings. You can turn it off there.

SOURCE: I keep getting an ''Auto Config Please Wait'' sign

once you are online, go to the website for the monitor, and download the latest drivers. if that doesn't help, go to computer makers site, and do same thing. Seems the driver you need is absent from operating system.

The PCB present in the front side of monitor is gone... open the screws from behind, and remove the front panel... Take the pcb along with the switch present in it... check for any physical damages.... if no then clean it with thinner or petrol using a old tooth brush... plug it back and connect all necessary wires... Now check by turning on.... still same problem then you need to replace that part alone with a new one... no other go....
You can also remove that entire unit and work with the computer,but you wont be able to adjust the settings in the monitor....

you monitor has an Auto Config button, push it. Or go into the screen menu (buttons on monitor) and find the auto setting there. If that doesn't work, check your display properties and make sure you desktop is set to the same size as you computer screen.

Display on laptop screen


You may have inadvertently pressed the correct hot keys to change the display around. In the bottom right hand corner of the screen you may have an icon for your graphics. If you click, or right click you can get the properties up. You should be looking for something which refers to screen orientation ie from landscape to portrait or vice versa.

A lot of line on the screen & black cycle appear under left corner of the screen.But, we can use Excel and other application .


This happens if you have any strong magnetic field near by the monitor like speakers etc.

I suggest you to keep that a bit far from the monitor as the magnetic field of it will affect the monitor screen.

And press menu button in monitor and search for the degauss option (Most of the monitors have this option), press degauss option, this must fix your discoloration issue.

Monitor's display is shifted up and right so that there is just black space to the left and all along the bottom whereby cutting off the display. cannot see bottom menu bar.


One of the buttons on the front of you monitor (bottom right hand corner of the bezel) is a menu button. Press that then using the the arrows up and down buttons go the the horizontal and vertical positioning option. Once chosen move the display as desired.

You could also press the Auto (config) button, that may do the same for you.

If you can put up with the sticky keys and they still work then it is OK.
Otherwise you need to replace the keyboard.
