Question about Dell E171FPb 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I'm not sure of the exact cause of this issue but I've heard of similar problems being caused by your desktop resolution being out of sync with the resolution of your monitor.
I've read elsewhere that the problem has been fixed by Right clicking on your desktop, going to Properties & adjusting your screen resolution to something different, clicking apply...then adjusting it back to whatever you'd like.
Failing that, I'd suggest giving Dell customer support a call. They have access to a lot more diagnostic material including button combinations that may clear the error out.
You can log a ticket online with them, or call them directly. The number can be found on www.dell.com

The monitor has been locked with a password
This would have been done via WINDOWS and is almost impossible to bypass (special software)
So find out who locked you out it does n''t happen by itself!
Please rate my help++++Thanks for using WINDOWS

When the icon is in the unlock position, hold down the Menu key (the far left button in the lower righht hand corner) on your monitor. This should bring up the menu. From there, you can reset the factory settings.
