Did you check all the pins on the VGA cable, the connectors are on tightly?
Does it do the same with another PC?
It stays on and gets normal color after warm up?
Please post back what you find. This is really old monitor.

How to get rid of main menu icon popping up


Anonymous,
Turn off. Disconnect the power cord from the rear/bottom. Press and hold in the power button for 10 seconds. Reconnect the power cord. Power on. If that does not stop it, it is broken and will need to be replaced.
Thank You,

"Shadowing" effect fixed by separating the wires in back. Touching wires cause crosstalk of signals . Immediate fix.

HP vs17 (PK657AA) problem: the image is displayed for 3 seconds


first try entering VGA mode in the startup menu. u can get the startup menu by pressing the F8 key immediately after the POST screen. if the screen stabilizes try changing the resolution to 1024 by 768 which should work in normal mode. if that doesnt work then the monitors internal bulbs may be burnt. an electrician may fix this problem for you.

How do I adjust the 22 in. rectangular screen to prevent images from appearing wider than normal. For example, pictures of persons make them look fat and wide.


You can use any other image viewing software such as Picasa. It will open images at 100% size but you can change the size of images

Brightness/contrast window pops up and scrolls through fast


The up/down button on your flat panel is stuck. Please contact Dell Technical Support to have the monitor replaced if its still within warranty.

Lock/unlock symbol appears in the middle of the screen


5-22-09 Same problem last month. I had the problem a year ago for a month, then it stopped, reappearing this last month. Last week, I finally called support...I was accidentally transferred to a Dell "internal" technical support department...happily a very diligent technician spent a bit of time with me for free...for same problem, even though he confirmed I was over a year past all warranties. He confirmed this was a monitor problem (not virus, malware, etc.). He also confirmed their standard "guidance"/solution for this monitor issue (if under warrantee) is to replace the monitor (i.e. not attempt to fix it). New monitor needed. But problem again gone for last 10 days. So, when fully irritated, buy new monitor.

You will need a new monitor screen. I have had two screens go on me recently and what you describes normally happens
