I wish to calibrate my monitor using Huey pro. When i bring up the OSD it only stays on the screen for a few seconds,not long enough to make adjustments. Please tell me how to adjust the length of time the OSD stays on screen. I am working with windows XP

I assume by "adjustment screen" you mean the OSD (On Screen Display). This is the box where the menus for adjusting the screen appear. If I'm correct, that means you have pushed the "menu" button on your LCD and need to push it again to turn the OSD off. If pushing it again does not solve the problem I would say it's time to have the LCD repaired. In many, but not all, that OSD goes off on it's own after a bit.
I have four Dell 2001FP monitors. The unavailable contrast is standard for this monitor when used with digital input (DVI). Make sure your brightness is at 100%.If you want a better result of dynamic range and color, the only effective option is color calibration. I use the inexpensive Huey Pro, available several places, including eBay. Retail is around $100. It something one uses maybe twice a year, takes five minutes to install and use, and the results are notable. I'm a designer, and need excellent color. This is the best solution. Calibrate your laptop as well, and the color should be almost exactly the same between them.
As an alternative, you can use the color settings, select User Preset, and start with something around 40 red 43 green and 37 blue. Adjust proportionately upward until you get what you want.
Another possibility is to use a different connector cable if your laptop has that option, since your monitor an take four different input formats.
-the main problem with your monitor is the OSD buttons
-the OSD buttons could be stuck so you can try checking the OSD buttons one by one to check which one is stuck
-try pressing it if it could remove the stuck buttons or you can try using a toothpick to remove the stuck OSD button
sounds like bad capacitors on the power pack, is this an older monitor ? could use some more info on age and type of monitors and the video card used. OSD is On Screen Display and it is for adjusting screen functions like color brightness etc. different screen resolutions can cause a monitor to shut down.
navigate with the monitor buttons to the OSD (on screen display). menu button brings up the OSD. then use volume buttons to move around. there should be a mute option or indications by symbols how to unmute the sound option. if there is not, i would guess pressing two buttons at the same time might do it.
