I have changed CPU's and it was doing it with both so the issue must be the monitor. I have tried disconnecting the monitor, then reconnecting it . . . restarting my computer . . . pushing the menu buttons . . . HELP . . . How do I stop this??

Padlock icon


Many monitors have an on-screen display lock (the padlock icon) that seems to get stuck.
Various suggestions in the links below - the one that seems to work most often is to hold the monitor's menu button down for 15-20 seconds to get the screen menu, then either try unlocking the OSD (On Screen Display) or do a factory reset on the monitor.

Different monitors have slightly different menus, but if it's a Dell monitor you can find the manual below (under Display):

Press and hold the menu button for 15 seconds or until the locked padlock icon changes to an unlock padlock. When it becomes unlocked, you can adjust your monitor. Hope this helps you.

Stupid padlock/main menu keeps opening and closing DELLe152fp


That is the OSD (On Screen Display) system built-in to your computer monitor. Check that when you hit the ON/OFF button on your monitor, that you do *NOT* hit the 'OSD ON/OFF' button.

Most of the time, the OSD will disappear after 10 seconds of "non-use".

LCD Main MEnu


hi,

It is possible that menu button on the monitor is stuck. I suggest to call your computer manufacturer where you purchased the monitor, check for the warranty and request for a replacement.

Keep me posted.

Thanks

Flashing padlock icon in the middle of the screen


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.
