Contrast/menu/screen resolution box wont stop flashing on screen.
The "menu," accessed on bottom of emachine computer monitor will not stop flashing on screen, even though it is not manually turned on. The "exit," button will not always turn it off. Sometimes it will remain on for seconds/minutes at a time, sometimes it will repeatedly flash on and off the screen. I do not believe the buttons to turn on are stuck, as they dont appear that way and sometimes I can work for half an hour on my computer without seeing it flash. This has been an ongoing problem with my computer for the past two weeks or so. Anyone that can offer any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

My E19T6W 19" LCD monitor has a menu that keeps popping up on the bottom right corner of my screen. Has been doing this continually since I got it. Changes from the eMachine monitor tour to resolution and contrast menus. I keep turning it off and within seconds it'll be right back. For the most part I just ignore it, but recently it has been driving me insane during movies.
Sorry, I have no solution, just thought you might like to know that I am having the exact same problem. The only thing I can add is that it appeared after a night that my computer was set to do a weekly upload of Microsoft, anti-virus and anti-spyware updates. Also, that night we had some electrical storms. The menu pops up in the bottom right corner at very erratic intervals and sometimes just flashes, while other times stays on for minutes. It is driving me crazy! I have tried updating the monitor driver and the video card using the "Device Manager" icon found in the "Control Panel". No luck. I have also ran anti-virus and anti-spyware scans and also used AVG to scan and fix registry errors. No luck. I am open to suggestions. Thanks
if nothing works and you cannot access your monitor settings via the menu button on the monitor then you have no way of correcting it. as far as i am aware the only thing you can change with the monitor from within your operating system are its resolution, refresh rate. so i think you need a knew monitor.
hi im josh in cebu phils. Maureen may i help you? If it happened yesterday that the contrast box keep on coming. there's a problem in your monitor.so try to check the buttons if covered with dust cleaning may solved the problem.Maureen if you have the manual use it in adjusting the resolution and if you dont have try to press the button mark + or increase just press both of the to the brightnest as posible so that you may be able to proceed another action. thats all for now.hope i helped you.good luck.
hit the menu button on the side, then select to de-activate the resolution reminder.....also you can look up what is the best resolution for your screen, especially if you are playing video's and video games.......you can change the resolution in your control panal, then hit "auto adjust" and it should fix that
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...
I'm had the exact same problem. Try to go to DISPALY PROPERTIES in XP and change the screen resolution to 1024X1280, the screen will reset itself and the square box will disappear. try to do it more then one time if it's doesnt help at first time. after awhile u can try and bring it back to the original resolution.
