Question about Compaq FP 7317 17" LCD Monitor
The monitor's display menu comes up without the menu button being pressed. The menu will sometimes seem to operate itself, then the small white window will come up saying "OSD Lockout". I can't turn the monitor off and unplugging and replugging doesn't work. It's a little creepy. What's going on?
Switches 1 & 2. Hold down untill it says "OSD unlocked" or similar, then let go.

Check the buttons on your monitor for possible shorts. Sometimes pressing a sequence of buttons while turning the monitor on will lock the OSD.

If resetting the OSD doesn't work, then you probably have a physical problem with your Menu button. Sometimes, particularly on older machines, the connections to the circuit board are dirty or failing. Because you have to actually get into the monitor itself, you will probably void any remaining warranty by attempting this fix. If your monitor is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer to see if there is a local repair shop that can help you.
If you want to tackle this issue yourself, grab a screwdriver and take the plunge. Remove the casing on the monitor itself and locate the contact switch for the menu button on the circuit board. Sometimes, just working it with your fingers or a screwdriver is enough to unstick it - you can try to clean off any dust or grime that has accumulated around it to see if that is the cause.
