The D40x works as SLRs have worked for half a century. You view and compose through the optical viewfinder. Nikon introduced the LiveView capability into their DSLRs with the D300 and D3, introduced well after the D40x. On the D40x, the monitor is for menus, settings, and review of previously taken photos. It cannot be used for shooting as on more recent cameras.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.
to turn this setting off just press the down arrow button when reviewing your photos. you will scroll through a number of ways to view tho photo including histogram, and one of the settings is just the picture.
