Odd. The manual doesn't mention anything about that. It almost sounds like one or more control buttons is partially shorted or leaky. That can happen if a foreign substance got in it or it was stored in an unheated garage or shed for a long time, etc.

How do i get rid of a black rectangular box at the top right hand corner of my monitor?


if it does not go away on its own, try pressing the menu button one more time, or scrolling down to exit. if you're in a submenu, hit back until you're at the main menu then wait. if it doesn't go away, scroll and select exit. if it's a plain black box, try removing the power cable from the back for 10 seconds, and plugging it back in again.

I have a w1907 HP monitor. It keeps displaying a small box in the middle of the screen that says osd lockout. I am still able to get online and use my computer normally except for this box in the middle of...


This message occurs when the Menu button on the front panel is pressed for more than 10 seconds. OSD lockout prevents the OSD menu from opening on the screen when a button is accidentally pressed.
NOTE: The button may be different and the procedure might vary on some monitors. Please check your monitor User Guide to find the exact procedure if this procedure does not work. To remove the OSD Lockout message, release the Menu button (if something was pressing against it), and press and hold the Menu button again for about 10 seconds - until the message goes away. If the OSD Lockout message does not go away, the button may be stuck or the hardware behind the button might have become defective.

Ibm thinkpad t30 how to get it to enter safe mode


Turn the computer off Turn the computer on Immediately hit F8 several times a second until a black and white menu appears, if you get the windows splash, you missed it. Start over Select which way you want windows to start in safe mode You will get a lot of white messages on a black screen You will then get a message that says proceed to safe mode or do a system restore to recover Proceed to safe mode.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs up as I do this for fun.

Monitor comes on for seconds and then goes black


This may be because the resolution that is set in your user profile when you log on has been changed to a resolution not supported by the monitor. The best way to fix this is by going into Safe Mode (press F8 as the computer starts to load Windows) and change it to a lower resolution once you get logged in. 1024X768 is a pretty safe resolution to start with. Then restart and see if that fixes the issue.

Laptop monitor goes black


If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

I hope this helps.
