Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.

On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.

Monitor problem

If you restart your computer and either go to the Bios setup menu (usually by pressing DEL or some other noted key, in the first few seconds of power up) does the same "contrast" menu still appear?

If so, then it must be your monitor (likely Monitor, not computer)
Your monitor is mad at you and it is displaying a Warning Message that is part of its OSD (On Screen Display). Some monitors are more sensitive then others so it takes very little to get this type of message. To get rid of it you will need to use the buttons on the monitor to get into the OSD menus. You need to look for something like "OSD Settings" or "Warning Message Settings" which may be found under "Setup Menu" or "Options Menu". This all depends on the make and model of the monitor as they are all slightly different.

Once you find this area you will need to turn off a setting that will be called "Warning Messages" or "Display Notifications", again the wording may be different but the idea is the same. Once you find the setting you should have the choice to set it to "ON", "OFF" or to an amount of time it will display (5 seconds, 15 seconds etc...).

On my Viewsonic the setting is found under "Setup Menu", and then I turn off "Warning Notification".


ps. If the display looks OK then there is most likely nothing wrong. The message appears because the monitor detects a setting that may be in error. If the message goes away after a bit and doesn't bother you, you may choose to ignore it.

Hp m705 display-menu flickering..

Don't worry, and not be taken aback by a virus. It is a problem which I am myself facing, it is a problem seen in rainy season in which the curcuits of the monitor get rust and pads get pressed. Replace it by new components. Heating the monitor ( by bulb being hanged aside ) may solve the problem.

Display menu virus? :(

try disconnecting your network cable and adjust the settings again, if you cant, enter safe mode by pressing f8 in the startup and select safemode then adjust the contrast there.

Or is this in the CRT monitor? inside the monitor? there are no viruses ever made for monitors. So its most likely a hardware fault in the crt. Maybe its time to buy a new one. LCD preferably easyer on your eyes.

E173FP 17" LCD Monitor Problem

I have the same problem. It seems like a virus to me, but my anti-virus doesn't find anything. I went to the main menu on the moniter and changed the display time to five seconds and locked the OSD display. Now all the appears is a smaller box showing a lock which goes out in five seconds. It is still annoying, but less intrusive then before. Hopefully, some one will determine a permanent fix for this problem.
