I have a Dell E171FPB monitor that had the \015\012same problem with the Main Menu coming up and I thought I would tell you \015\012what I did to fix the problem.\015\012
\015\012\015\012
\015\0121. I shut down the PC.\015\012
\015\0122. I removed the power cable and video cable from the back of the monitor.\015\012
\015\0123. I removed the four screws that hold the stand for the monitor and \015\012slid the stand off.\015\012
\015\0124. I then removed the 5 screws that hold the back cover on the monitor.\015\012
\015\0125. I took two flat blade screw drivers and carefully removed the back \015\012cover.\015\012
\015\012\015\012
\015\012 At the bottom of the monitor case, there is a small circuit board the \015\012holds the 6 switches for controlling the display.\015\012
\015\012\015\012
\015\0126. I located the button that calls up the Main Menu. It is the second \015\012switch from the left as you are looking at the monitor from the rear.\015\012
\015\0127. I used a small solder iron and heated up the four prongs in sequence \015\012while holding the switch with a pair of needle nose pliers. I had to \015\012rotate this process from one prong to the other while all the time \015\012applying slight pulling pressure on the switch pulling it away from the \015\012circuit board.\015\012
\015\0128. Once the switch was removed, I put the cover back on and tightened \015\012up the five screws.\015\012
\015\0129. Then I slid the base back in the slot it came from and tightened the \015\012four screws.\015\012
\015\01210. I connected the video and power cable and turned on the PC.\015\012
\015\012\015\012
\015\012With the switch removed the Main Menu never popped up again and I am so \015\012very happy.
On this monitor you can unplug the buttons completely and the default for it is to be on so if it is the button controller the problem should stop. you will however need to switch it off and on at the wall.\015\012\015\012all you simply need to do to get rid of the buttons is take the back off and just unplug them, they are the one serial plug on the opposite side of the unit to the either 2 or 4 smaller plugs which are for the display backlight.
