Question about HP Pavilion F1703 17" LCD Monitor
F1703 monitor >> too simple!!! Unclip the front cover that sits around the front screen. >Becareful not to break the clips.>Remove the adjustment 715L1009-1-B (MANNEQUIN KEY BOARD) it has 2 screws and unclips from opposite side of the board. >> Clip back the surrounding cover.
Job done, no more OSD MAIN MENU ON YOUR SCREEN.
And you do not need to replace the board, your monitor will work just fine.

I have a Dell E171FPB monitor that had the
same problem with the Main Menu coming up and I thought I would tell you
what I did to fix the problem.
1. I shut down the PC.
2. I removed the power cable and video cable from the back of the monitor.
3. I removed the four screws that hold the stand for the monitor and slid the stand off.
4. I then removed the 5 screws that hold the back cover on the monitor.
5. I took two flat blade screw drivers and carefully removed the back cover.
At the bottom of the monitor case, there is a small circuit board the holds the 6 switches for controlling the display.
6. I located the button that calls up the Main Menu. It is the second switch from the left as you are looking at the monitor from the rear.
7. I used a small solder iron and heated up the four prongs in sequence while holding the switch with a pair of needle nose pliers. I had to rotate this process from one prong to the other while all the time applying slight pulling pressure on the switch pulling it away from the circuit board.
8. Once the switch was removed, I put the cover back on and tightened up the five screws.
9. Then I slid the base back in the slot it came from and tightened the four screws.
10. I connected the video and power cable and turned on the PC.
With the switch removed the Main Menu never popped up again and I am so very happy.

Pls check 2 items-
1. The battery in the CPU mother board. Replace it if too old.
2. Unplug yr memory card from the slot & plug it back again. It could be loose.

Tips for a great answer:
Press the "Menu" button again if the lockout message remains on the screen.
Use the arrow buttons to navigate through the main menu options.
Highlight the "Settings" or "OSD Menu" option and then hit the Menu key again to access the new list of settings.
Scroll down to the "OSD Lock" heading. Use the arrow keys to change the setting to "No." Hit the Menu key again to return to the main menu. Scroll to the "Exit" setting and then hit the Menu key a final time to exit the menu setting and remove the OSD lockout.
hope this helps
