I was cleaning the bottom of the screen and hit the color. Now it is blue and very hard to look at. I am at work, so I need this fixed

There should be a button that pulls up a menu to adjust color/contrast/ bright, etc. Press it and go through the menu options by either repeatedly pressing the menu button, or by using up-down-right left arrows. Adjust your colors using these options, or if available, try "auto" adjust.
I don't know this particular monitor, and am no "expert", but these options should be available on virtually any LCD monitor. A final option, if adjusting these does not help, look at all the menu - settings. If you see "recall" or "restore" or "default" anywhere, try selecting that option.

Good luck

Need to get screen size to show all . cant see

Things to check: Are your display settings set to "native resolution" of your screen. The native resolution is the actual dimensions (in pixels) of your flat-panel screen.
Looks like the Dell E153FP 15" has a native resolution of 1024x768. In windows, go to your control panel, in display settings, and ensure the resolution is set to 1024x768.
If that does not work, you can try the "auto adjust" feature on the monitor. On many Dell monitors, you can get this by pressing and holding the + button (on the monitor). You'll see the words "auto-adjust" appear on the screen if this works. If that doesn't work, you may be able to find auto adjust by navigating the menues in your monitor's menu, which you can get to by pressing the "menu" button on your monitor (sometimes this looks like a little rectangle icon). If it's an alignment problem, this should fix it right away.
If neither of the above work, it's probably your video card. Make sure your video card drivers are the correct ones for your card and OS, and up to date. You can also mess with display options under Control Panel > Display, under the "settings" tab, and at the bottom click the "Advanced" button, and it will bring up the advanced settings for your videocard.
Good luck!

Depends of what seems to be a problem.
If you want to get rid of that message box, appearing by itself, then probably you need to take front panel PCB with buttons and replace "Auto" one, 'cause it's stuck.
If you want to unlock an Auto Adjustment and other functions in your monitor, then press and hold 'Enter' button for 5 seconds.

Auto Adjustment won't work on Samsung 2253BW 22" LCD monitor

I looked up your monitor and that resolution is not supported. Which means auto adjustment will not work.
The video card will compensates for that, and resizes the picture for a display resolution that shows the picture anyway, (if it can) but isn't what you wanted. Your best bet is to use resolutions that are compatible, or get a (different) monitor.

Auto adjastment locked

Samsung implements protection into their monitors, which allows to block all settings except brightness and contrast. This "Locked" mode turns on by pressing and holding 'Menu' button for 5 seconds, and turns off by pressing and holding 'Enter' button for 5 sec.
