Mrsrobins849, if monitor manufacturing date (on rear of unit) is anywhere close to 2003-2004 then trade unit for new wide screen only if problem of flashing "menu" goes away when you connect a borrowed substitute monitor to your pc. Will your monitor "act" same when connected to "known-good" "fully-booted" pc that will display the WIN-desktop?? Most problems with "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" "back-lit" lcd monitors can be attributed to their internal or external "switch-mode-power-supply" DC voltages degrading over time with use.

I keep getting the OSD LOCKED that keeps popping up on my screen and it flashes on top of my page and is driving me nuts how do i get it to stop


Are you holding the menu button down when the monitor is off or on? Are you keeping the menu button held down when you push the power button to turn it on?

Im trying to take a photo of a black top but it keeps coming out grey, there is also a white blur round the edge of the top


Might be the wrong camera to take a professional shot with. The white balance is being read from the surrounding envionment so tends to lighten the intensity of the contrast. You may be able to alter the intensity on the PC in a pohotoshop program.. SATURATION, HUE, COLOR BALANCE option. You cannot generally get an intense black on screen of cheap camera in daylight or even using flash. The camera is designed to give an average overall metering through the lens.

Higher quality cameras let you alter the Kelvins ( temperature) of the shot to improve on contrast etc. They also have spot metering, which is a series of boxes seen through the viewfinder that can be programed to allow for depth of field focus and contrast metering.

So if you dont have a better camera then use a photo manipulating program to change the picture to your liking

Menu screen keeps popping on and off during usage


Check the menu button on your monitor. Chances are it is stuck in the depressed position. (Sometimes an edge of the button will get caught beneath the frame.)

Brightness/contrast window pops up and scrolls through fast


The up/down button on your flat panel is stuck. Please contact Dell Technical Support to have the monitor replaced if its still within warranty.

Display fails after a couple of seconds


Connecting a different computer that works to it doesn't fix the problem(what does that mean, its not CLEAR at all)
my guess is you meant the new PC fails on this bad monitor , too.


ok the monitor fails on PC #2, sure....
so the monitor is bad, why ask for help, buy a new monitor.
why spend $100 to fix it when new is %50
why>?

your not going to fix any monitor, here, on fixya,
but there is one thing to check the very old monitors from compaq
ive answered this 4 times here now.
has menu botton
see that? push that now on the monitor
see that menu..
? one menu selection , has silly horrible, power saver timer on it
and a RTC clock that keeps time of day, (pc can be OFF)
if the power saver is on , get it off now, and if paranoid set the clock.
id set it. so its double safe, see?
this happened back in 2002.
i read you users guide for you its a 2001. oops, its got the above BS.

read page 18 and all related pages to this. clock and saver.
page 18 there, page 16 real.
if it one , the INANE thing will go to saver at odd times.
later this was removed for VESA , update, remote sleep rules. and time.

Dell flat screen goes white and colored block appears and floats


Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.
