monitor menu popping up

November 11, 2010 at 19:29:37
Specs: Windows XP Media Center, Pentium (R) D 2.80Ghz/1.00 GB Ram

Monitor Menu pops up on its own, and runs through all of the selections. It cannot be controlled nor stopped. Eventually, it will select BRIGHTNESS and turn it all the way up. My Monitor is HP V75 17 inch CRT MONITOR. I've already download the definition updates and constantly reinstall the device driver without success. I don't know if there is a connection between Windows Malicious Software Updates and this problem. I received an update 24 hours ago and the popup has not returned yet. Norton does not indicate malicious software problems. Perhaps, the problem will go away if I purchase the flat screen monitor that was listed for my desktop PC. HP Support cannot resolve the problem.

Sounds like a button stuck or going bad.

Thanks! Your reply and Norton does not indicate malicious software...which was my major concern. Those LG monitors look good. However, my goal is to switch to MAC (No Viruses) when Microsoft trash Windows XP and my desktop pc. I'm tired of the new OS upgrades, migrations, viruses, and identity threats.

"Sounds like a button stuck.."

As in - make sure the buttons on the monitor for the monitor settings are not stuck such that they're all the way inwards.

I removed front panel; applied compressed air. Buttons are not stuck. Not interested in having it repaired, nor attempting to repair it myself. Thanks

I've had the same problem, it has nothing to do with your cpu, programs, software update, etc. It is your monitor. I opened the case of my monitor, and I gained access to the buttons on the print circuit board. I sprayed it with contact cleaner and it worked for a while. After a month, the same problem occured. I got fed up and removed all the switches on the pcb by using a soldering iron. Now the problem is gone! Saved my at least $100. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Sounds daunting. I have'nt had any training with circuit boards, and I never got past basic electricity. I would definitely need a descriptive diagram to ldentify the parts. And, the problem has improved 99% after using compressed air inside the monitor. I'm satisfied with it...for now.
