Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

My monitor has started cycling through the main menu & OSD lockout. The menu doesn't work, so it just cycles about twice a minute. I have powered off the monitor as well as pulled the plug for better than an hour, but the issue returns. Note: Behind the menu / OSD Lockout displays everything looks fine (except for the covered area of course). Thanks

Im deeply disappointed with this HP7540 crt monitor. This settings menu that is only supposed to come up when pressing the button on the monitor, just keeps flickering and its continuously in my way. In the past it would disappear after about half an hour. No disppearing anymore now. One expensive thing I have noticed is that it doesnt matter how great a computer is, it meens nothing if the monitor isnt working properly. I have now, tried EVERYTHING. Is the driver installed? yes it is. I have no
