    Yes, the same thing has begun to happen with my monitor (Viewsonic VM series flat LCD). The monitor is only a few months old. It just started popping the menu up for no reason (sometimes flashing it on the screen, and other times remaining there for 2 minutes or more). I've cleaned the monitor with canned air, inspected the connections and everything. Since it also occurs while the system is booting up (even before Windows loads), I suspect some kind of hardware problem, or internal monitor software problem. It has happened to me in the past with a different monitor, but I can't remember what I did to fix it. Frankly, I'm a bit 'stumped' as to what to do to fix it.

The buttons in front of your monitor is a toggle switch. This kind of switch is that when ' they get older they produces resistance and works with their own way, without pressing them. if you can do open your monitor you can do replace it.

1. prepare the following:
* screw driver/soldering iron/soldering lead/paint brush to remove melted leads.
2. remove all the toggle switch, replace all of it if possible, don't worry its really not expensive, it just cost about 12-15 pesos each.
3. then put in the new switches and try to put in the way it was before.
4. close back the monitor. this is 99.95% sure.

note: before doing these, unplug the wire from the outlet to avoid electric shock.
