The micro switches on the monitor are getting short which is triggering the menu, try to clean it with a switch cleaner or check if the switches can be replaced, do this only if u r an expert in handling things like this or take some proffessional assistance.

The brightness/contrast menu keeps popping up and scrolling through the exit, brightness and contrast options. It is a Dell E173FP monitor. I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting the cables and...

Try pushing the buttons for the brightness if it does the same thing you need to replace it, the buttons might be damaged already by pushing too hard or it got stuck.
If this is just a new LCD monitor about 1 to 2 years old contact tech support of dell so you can get this replaced.

The dell monitors are bad with capacitors going out, check caps in power supply and video board. You can use a can of freeze, it would be easier that way. Just be careful not to touch anything, because these monitors can shock easy.
