Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Hello! For the past week or so, when my computer is on, no matter what I am working on, the contrast box (one that allows brightness ect.) continues to pop up. This happens without me touching anything, and the "exit," button usually wont make it disappear. Sometimes it flashes on and off a hundred times in a minute. HELP! It is making me crazy and if someone can't help me with this issue, I will have no choice but to contact a Catholic Priest and have an exocism done on my emachine computer! I am going bonkers! If anyone can help this go away, I would be forever in debt! Note, I do not think the button located on the monitor is stuck. It comes and goes, sometimes not flashing for minutes, sometimes it wont go off at all! And it is pops up in the center of the screen, making working on my pc impossible. Thanks!
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...
