Dell Ultrasharp 21' monitor

The Brightness/Contrast control will pop up automatically on the screen and can not be shut off. I have turn the machine off, unplugged, etc. but no change. When this pops up, the highlighted areas cycles through exit, brightness, contrast continueolly, then shuts off after you play with the front panel controls.

    sometimes the Brightness / Contrast controls will pop up in the middle of my screen & the only way I can get rid of it is to turn the monitor off & on again. I swear that sometimes it seems prompted by computer activity.

    Same problem---Brightness menu pops up without prompting in the middle of the screen; it is so annoying. Can't these geeks get this stuff right.

Screen too bright, have just got monitor from e-bay and there are no instructions on use.

Check all the buttons near the ON/OFF button.

One of the buttons will activate the OSD (On Screen Display).

The OSD controls everything about the monitor, including BRIGHTNESS and CONTRAST. Use the other buttons to move between menu-items, and to "select" one of the sub-menus, and to raise/lower settings, and to "exit" from a sub-menu to the main-menu.
