Auto adjust in progress

1. Push the menu button at the front side of your Dell monitor. The icon looks look like a miniature version of your monitor.

2. Push the menu button again. This will exit the monitor menu and launch the OSD (On-Screen Display) menu.

3. Use the down arrow button on your monitor to select "Factory Reset."

4. Push the menu button.

5. Use the down arrow button to select "All Settings." Press the menu button to save changes.

6. Push the menu button twice to exit from the menu. Your Dell monitor will go back to its factory settings default, and its auto-detect feature will be disabled.

Black screen on computer monitor

Here is the link for the E151FPb monitor manual.
Since you email your question you have access to get this manual and print it. The manual shows the Auto set button, the contrast control button and a monitor reset feature.

Unfortunately you have to do each of these blind. Follow the instruction given, push buttons smartly, wait a few seconds for any action to take place, then follow the next instruction.

Good luck.

Optiquest Q19wb - I accidentally hit the "auto" button and the display is completely off center to one side. If I turn it off/on, it goes the other way. The OSD controls do not allow me to completely...

1 use the install disk that came with the monitor.
If this does not work then you may have an issue with the electronics.
2. take unit to a certified technician to check the circuitry.
3. this could be a inverter gone bad.

There are buttons on the front of the monitor. Why

The first button is the E-power button for the Auto preset function.With it you can select presets like text, standard, graphics etc. depending on your use.
When you select any button the options are displayed at the bottom of the window. These tell you what button to press to select the next option.
For example press --menu-- > -- > -- menu , to adjust the horizontal and vertical position.

To turn off the monitor you must press and hold the --circle with the line -- button for a couple of seconds.
