Random color flashes

Dont ask me how i got it started in the first place. i think i pressed two of the buttons on the monitor at once, but since then the monitor will flash in different colors (red, then blue, then black, etc) and that is all. ive unplugged it, and tried pressing button combinations with no luck. anyone have any suggestions?

If the CD drive door won't open, odds are that at least you know the drive is without power. Have you had the case opened up at all? With what you've described here your computer needs the tender, loving care of a technician.

Stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing DELLe152fp

That is the OSD (On Screen Display) system built-in to your computer monitor. Check that when you hit the ON/OFF button on your monitor, that you do *NOT* hit the 'OSD ON/OFF' button.

Most of the time, the OSD will disappear after 10 seconds of "non-use".

Acer LCD AL1711 Monitor Flashes Colors

Main power supply, and or the backplane power supply, and or the backplane lamps usually cause this.

The fix is to try new modules using the process of illimination. Once the defective modules are determined, the new ones must stay in the monitor.

That is the process used to service this monitor.

Monitor flashes primary colors

Your monitor has disco fever and will have to be shot in a midnight ritual in Palm Springs. Or, you will have to replace a diac circuit linking the display, power control, and power supply grounds (or possibly an overvolt protector of some sort in the power supply.) I don't know why for this kind of error the designer couldn't just put a message on the OSD in some random human language.
