This is a "feature" they include to prevent accidental changes to the screen setup. You should be able to unlock the OSD by pushing the Menu button and the right arrow button together for about three seconds. The message "controls unlocked" should appear. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate the posting.

An OSD message appears in a box that covers much of the monitor screen. The mouse pointer disappears behind the box whenever I try to sweep into it. The box will not go away (except intermittantly)...


OSD means On Screen Display. To unlock the OSD hold the power button of the monitor until you get a message similar to "OSD unlocked".

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

My computer screen has a blue box that pops up and say "Controls locked". I am assuming that the buttons on the bottom right hand corner of my moniter is what it is talking about because when I hit the...


This is from the user manual for the monitor. You can download a copy from hp here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=324216&os=228&lang=en&

Click on the "monitor user's guide" link to download.

There are four adjustable options on the OSD settings screen: Lock OSD settings, Timeout, H Position, and V Position.
To change OSD settings:
1 Open the OSD setting screen under the Advanced menu. See
“Using the On Screen Display” on page 25.
2 Press the Browse buttons to select the option you want to adjust.
3 Press the Select button to check the option.
To change OSD lock setting:
1 Press the Browse button to select yes (lock) or no (unlock). The
setting is automatically saved when you change the value.
2 Choose Exit sub-menu and press the Select button to return to
the OSD Main Menu or press the Menu button to exit OSD.
NOTE: Once OSD is locked, all OSD functions including the
shortcut buttons are disabled. If OSD is locked, pressing
any button on the monitor directly opens the Lock OSD
settings window so that you can unlock OSD.
