Question about Computers & Internet
Ensure that the cable to the back of the machine and the bottom of the monitor is properly connected on both ends. If another cable is available, switch it and see if the issue persists.
If you have another monitor, switch it out too. If you are still getting issues with the machine, it may be that the graphics chipset on your motherboard (or your videocard itself, if it is separate), is having issues.. If so, you'll need to contact the manufacturer or take it to a repair shop to see about getting it looked at and the parts you need replaced.

Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the Power button until you get a message saying "OSD Unlocked". If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait 20 seconds and try again.
Turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
Turn off the monitor, press down the Menu button and then turn on the monitor. Wait 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
The Menu button may be stuck in a pressed in position. To get it "unstuck" you'll usually need to open up the monitor. This could be tricky unless you know what you're doing. Unfortunately there are too many models of monitor for me to provide detailed instructions. If you have warranty this is where you want to contact the manufacturer.
