 all you should have to do to unlock the controls is press and hold the Menu button for about 10-15 seconds. That should unlock all of the controls.

    What is the menu button????

  • binoblaine05 Jul 21, 2011

    There are 5 buttons on the side. At the very bottom is the power button. The menu button is right above the power button.

    Actually..one is a monitor and the other is a computer supposedly, so if you threw it in the bin, you would still be without a monitor. Throw the mac in a bin and get a computer that will actually run some software.

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.
