MONITOR On my monitor, the contrast box continues to automatically "pop up". I don't activate it with the monitor menu, it just automatically "pops up". Sometimes, I can get it to disappear and sometimes it just disappears on it own. HELP!!!!! I have the same problem. I think it's a virus , like Smith Faud or something like that. And also from time to time my system and file protection gets disabled and I have turn it back on. Thank got for the warning notification in program tray.

My hp f2304 monitor buttons don't work. The contrast menu randomly pops up and won't go away for hours.


sounds like the circuit control board is bad. Sorry, but unless you know how to replace IC panels you should consider getting a new monitor.

Sounds like the monitor menu is popping up. If so, it is not your computer but the monitor that is causing the problem. Is the monitor menu button stuck?

Menu/screen resolution/contrast box keeps popping up on screen.


By what your describing, the board in the monitor that allows you to make changes to the display is going bad (sounds like the settings button). If it were a notebook you might be able to get a board replacement (just an example I know notbooks dont have this feature in the lid). Since it seems that your display is for a desktop, I dont think it would be easy or inexpensive to get a replacement board. You will probably have to get a new monitor. If you want to fix it yourself, pull the monitor apart and get the board out. Try an electronics cleaner and put it back together. If it works, great. If it doesnt, take the board back out and take the board to an electronics (tv) repair shop and see if they can solder in a new button. If that doesnt work your back to buying a new monitor. Hope this helps...

Hello,

Unfortunately, it soulds like the monitor may be going bad. You may have to use the manufacturer warranty if its still valid.

Thanks

this may be your monitor settings popping up. i had a monitor and limmitted space and the keyboard kep hitting the menu button on the monitor, it was very annoying with the menu popping up while i was gaming, untill i figured it out.
moving the monitor back a few inches solved the problem

Sounds like the buttons are sticky. Open unit and clean with electronic cleaner. May try spray with unit off.
