Question about HP f2105 21" LCD Monitor
By allycoo, posted on Mar 17, 2008
Hi all, I'm a newbie. Like others I'm having a problem with the power button. It didn't start until I used one of the buttons in the bezel because my monitor sound went out (the computer earphones work though). I pressed the monitor sound button (for the first time) thinking for some reason it was just a fluke. Anyway when I pressed the button, some sort of "indicator pop-up" came up to show how much I was raising the sound. It's a rectangle about 4" x 6" inches and stays on all the time (may flash on and off every once in a while) which makes the computer almost unuseable because it's right in the middle of the screen and it stays on top and I have to guess where any download or favorites pop-up comes up because the the cursor is lost behind it. There is no X or minimize box, to turn it off - just a plain black pop-up with a white border.
The other bezel buttons don't work either - then about a week later the power button started flashing between amber and blue. Now I can't turn it off (except by turning off computer and pulling AC plug) My screensaver works most of the time but the box is even on top of that-!!! Of course I can't use Media Center either (seems like all the action is in the middle of the screen.)
I called HP (India) but they were no help. I would take it back to Circuit City but my warranty expired a month before all of this happened. I called a couple of shops and the minimum (just to open it) was $150 which with only social security I can't afford.
I didn't know about this website or I would have asked earlier!!! Thanks for any help anyone can offer. I'm at my wits end.
I hope this is not too long but I wanted to give as many details as possible. In summary:
1.) No bezel buttons work
2:) Volume pop-up stays on.
