Hold the menu button down long enough and it should unlock, if it unlocks and then immediately locks back up then you have a main board problem

My monitor(view sonic e70fb ) is osd lock, n how how can get unlock


Hi Mandalavijay,

To unlock your monitor you need to hold two keys simultaneously for about 5 seconds.

In this case for your model you need to press the 1 key and the down arrow key and a message will appear which reads ' OSD Unlock'

Hope this helps...:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

· The OSD Lock Out Message

Power your computer completely off and then remove the monitor cable from the port on the back side of the computer case. Reattach the cable and make sure the pins are correctly screwed in all of the way. Power the computer back on and check to see if the OSD lock out message is still being displayed.

· 2

Check the manual that came with your computer or monitor and locate the troubleshooting section if you are still receiving the OSD lock out message. Find the OSD lock out heading and read the method that your particular model of monitor uses to remove the lock out. Follow the instructions to remove the lock out.

· 3

Attempt generic lock out removal procedures if you no longer have the manual that came with your monitor. Press and hold the "Menu" button located at the bottom end of your monitor for 15 seconds and wait to see if the OSD lock out message disappears.

· 4

Press the "Menu" button again if the lock out message remains on the screen. Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the main menu options. Highlight the "Settings" or "OSD Menu" option and then hit the Menu key again to access the new list of settings.

The OSD Settings Menu
Scroll down to the "OSD Lock" heading. Use the arrow keys to change the setting to "No." Hit the Menu key again to return to the main menu. Scroll over to the "Exit" setting and then hit the Menu key a final time to exit the menu setting and remove the OSD lock out

Key Lock?


Try this! Copied right from the Princeton Graphics support pages. (bless their hearts....'course it wasn't "real" easy to find; it was posted for a different monitor for a different problem... but it seems to work for different monitors... Mine's an LCD19D ... and no, it wasn't posted for my monitor either.)

1) Power off the LCD
2) Unplug your VGA cable
3) Press the up arrow at the same time you power on the LCD monitor.

Princeton CD770MCN 17 driver and or setup program


My only suggestion: responsibly recycle that 17-inch CRT, and buy a used 17-inch LCD; around here, the local "government surplus" store is selling 3-year-old 17-inch LCDs for $50, plus taxes.

If it was a "plug-and-play" monitor, then there was _NO_ need for any "drivers" at all, because the monitor would identify which combinations of horizontal/vertical pixels and refresh-rates that it would support.

Have you disabled your onboard video in the BIOS? Boot your machine with the vga cord to the motherboard. You need to get into the BIOS. Depending on the make of your machine you need you will need to hit the del key, f2, or even f1. Go to the periphrial setup and disable your onboard video. Save the BIOS turnoff the computer and plug the monitor into you vga card. That should do it. To change it back to your motherboards vga just reverse the instructions. Let me know what happens.
