OSD Menu pops up suddenly on Monitor

by stew / September 2, 2012 9:19 AM PDT

I'm getting a pop-up of the "OSD Menu" showing the adjustments for the Brightness, Contrast, Auto Adjustment, Advanced Menu, and Exit, on my Monitor screen.

It's the same pop up I get when I push one of the 3 buttons located at the bottom of my screen on my monitor.

I've tried going into Advanced Menu section and clicking the Factory Reset button and it didn't thelp as I still get this pop up about every 2 or 3 minutes.

I've got an HP L1706 17" LCD Monitor & a HP Compaq dx2200 Modum with Windows XP Professional.

How can I make the OSD Menu inactive ?? Thanks !

Checked out ok - need more help.
Also made sure that the buttons were not pushed in and released okay..
Still popping up every minute or so.

I'm afraid the monitor needs repair.

I wonder if that's still done outside warranty. As devices are becoming cheaper there's more replacement and less repair. Look at the usual $60 printer or $90 all-in-one for example. If those fail after warranty you buy a new one, because that's cheaper than repair. Monitors might go the same way.

One more time.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
