Wendy ohlsen, I know you really like your E173FP, but it is quite "old" in CCFL back-lit lcd display years. It could be 4 to 6 years old. Retrevo .com lists unit as "time to retire" ,, Please reply back with the "date of manufacture" from rear of unit. Tell me if unit has a "lay on floor" power adapter or just a plain old "line cord" that plugs into the wall. When "strange stuff" starts to appear on screen, problem is most likely inside the unit on the power supply board. Let me know if your husband or boyfriend can assist you with an internal visual investigation of unit's power supply board. See YOUTUBE video clips of repairs being done on typical Dell units first. Pay particular attention to BAD CAPACITORS being replaced with new ones!!! 12fixlouie

It means that some kind of parental control feature has locked you out of the On Screen Display menu. You will have to consult your manual (possibly online) to figure out how to reset the password.
Although it is possible some other kind of malfunction could cause you to lose menu control, this is the most likely cause.

This is from the user manual for the monitor. You can download a copy from hp here:

There are four adjustable options on the OSD settings screen: Lock OSD settings, Timeout, H Position, and V Position.
To change OSD settings:
1 Open the OSD setting screen under the Advanced menu. See
“Using the On Screen Display” on page 25.
2 Press the Browse buttons to select the option you want to adjust.
3 Press the Select button to check the option.
To change OSD lock setting:
1 Press the Browse button to select yes (lock) or no (unlock). The
setting is automatically saved when you change the value.
2 Choose Exit sub-menu and press the Select button to return to
the OSD Main Menu or press the Menu button to exit OSD.
NOTE: Once OSD is locked, all OSD functions including the
shortcut buttons are disabled. If OSD is locked, pressing
any button on the monitor directly opens the Lock OSD
settings window so that you can unlock OSD.
