    Hmm I checked them and they're allright my computer is working right it has nothing to do with the hard drive it's just the osd on my monitor that pops up on the contrast/brightness setting by itself and there seems to be something wrong with the bottons. I want to clean them but I don't know how!

    is this a laptop or a desktop monitor the leads to your hard drive can affect the monitor and the screen resolution if they are the flat 40 pin IDE replace them
    try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your graphics card dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems
    hope this helps

I purchased my Norcent computer monitor four years ago. Now, the sub-menu Contrast/Brightness selection keeps popping up on my screen. So, I have to either push the #1 button to Exit or the #2 Adjust...


Hi,

It seems to be a hardware issue with the buttons. They are stuck or the rubber cushion under the button has gone bad. That's the reason they are getting pressed automatically. You may take to a local store for a small repair.

My aopen f2925 monitor has a green tint.


The solution: hidden menu within the main menu itself. Hold the Menu button down while pressing Power to power on, and release power button only when the screen comes up, still holding the menu button. The menu will appear and there will now be a hidden selection, "Auto Color", printed in a red-on-black font at the bottom of the menu. Use the +/- buttons to access it, and press Menu. My green/yellow tint went away! Now my picture works great, and the setting lasts through Auto-Adjusts and Resets!

Why is there a small print on my screen


It sounds like the Monitor adjustment button is engaged or hanging is there anything leaning against the buttons say the back of the keyboard or something may have bumped it hard and caused it to sit funny. Esp. since you said you hit the exit. That display is for adjusting the monitor for size of image brightness contrast screen position. You may have the screen size set too large to get to the whole menu. Check the button issue first, someone once had some pop spray the screen and the dried sticky coke cause the button to stay partially down. Please unplug the monitor if you use any liquid to clean the button to avoid a short or shock.

Your first step in troubleshooting this problem is to plug in another monitor to your computer. If you are having the same problem it is related to your computer. If the second monitor works fine then your original monitor is shot.
