Having problems with your Dell E172FP 17" LCD Flat Panel Monitor ?
Lock/unlock symbol appears in the middle of the screen
\015 The lock, unlock symbol keep appearing in the middle of the screen. Also, the "Main Menu" for the monitor keeps appearing and disapearing in the middle of the screen. I have tried pushing and holding the menu button on the front of the monitor but cannot get these items to stop flashing on my screen. How do I get these items to stop popping up.\015
5-22-09 Same problem last month. I had the problem a year ago for a month, then it stopped, reappearing this last month. Last week, I finally called support...I was accidentally transferred to a Dell "internal" technical support department...happily a very diligent technician spent a bit of time with me for free...for same problem, even though he confirmed I was over a year past all warranties. He confirmed this was a monitor problem (not virus, malware, etc.). He also confirmed their standard "guidance"/solution for this monitor issue (if under warrantee) is to replace the monitor (i.e. not attempt to fix it). New monitor needed. But problem again gone for last 10 days. So, when fully irritated, buy new monitor.
Hold the menu button between 10 and 20 seconds until the lock changes to unlock

Display problem the adjustment box for colour, brightness and contrast stays fixed on the screen. i tried pressing the exit button.... after a few times it disappears only to reappear within a few minutes. also the auto adjustment option, for which we are supposed to manually press the i button, keeps auto adjusting the screen whenever it feels like it. the box appears right in middle of the screen and is a real nuisance as it blocks out the main portion.

My computer got a virus and I couldn't get rid of it so I ran disk check. It came up with about 600 corrupted files which it then deleted or tried to fix.

I don't have my recovery disks because I am in the middle of a move and they're packed and the instructions for using F8 to access recovery partition don't do anything.
