Could be,but,check the operating buttons on the monitor and make sure non is 'pressed in/stuck'.
Try another monitor on the same desktop and see what happens.

The monitor always display contrast...

If you have tried to connect and reconnect the cable of your monitor, kindly try to disconnect the cable of your CRT monitor then check if there are any bent pins. Usually this happens if there is any pin that is bent.

I get a pop window saying CONTRAST 100 .This comes every time . what should i do to stop this pop up window ? is this due to virus?

This problem is probably related to dust/moisture or a stucked sticky control key on your monitor. Perhaps the contrast button is stucked - press the button a few times to try and release it or use a hair dryer/dry compress air to blow the keys if it is due to moisture. (Happens during raining seasons).

Hope it helps.

The contrast is to red and there is no green in the colour when ever i tried to change the contrast

try the RGB settings. contrast has nothing to do with colors, just intensity of light to dark.

Contrast window pops up and dims the screen.

You are not alone. I have a Viewsonic monitor that does exactly the same thing. Wasn't sure if it was the monitor or a "bug".

Adi microscan monitor 17 green screen

this is a loose cable from the monitor vga. please make sure the cable is secure from THE monitor side

It is a connection somewhere. It can be the cable, monitor, or video card. If you another input on the monitor i.e. DVI try that with a different cable. If there is another output on video card try that. Mix them to test. trial and error.

Odds are there are some smashed pins.

Display menu virus? :(

try disconnecting your network cable and adjust the settings again, if you cant, enter safe mode by pressing f8 in the startup and select safemode then adjust the contrast there.

Or is this in the CRT monitor? inside the monitor? there are no viruses ever made for monitors. So its most likely a hardware fault in the crt. Maybe its time to buy a new one. LCD preferably easyer on your eyes.

Menu keeps popping up

Never a good idea to clean with any spray cleaner. The cleaner does get down in the button bar and cause corrosion and shorting along ribbon cable. Use screen wipes for computer monitors only on TV's and any type of monitors. You can remove the back of the case. And remove the button board and clean with a cue tip and alcohol along ribbon cable.
