Having problems with your HP vs15 15"LCD Flat Panel Monitor ?

OSD Lockout I have a HPw22 22" monitor and the OSD Lockout message has been appearing randomly. I have tried to hold down the menu button for 10 seconds, hooking it up to a different computer  and neither one of these seems to fix the problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Answers :

Hold the menu/ok button for ten seconds, to unlock the OSD.
\015\012If this doesn't solve the problem, then it's probably the button that got stuck.
\015\012
\015\012There are two things you can do to repair it, but both require that you\015\012dismantle the casing, which voids any warranty.. so, if the monitor's\015\012still covered by the warranty, or if money is not an issue, have it\015\012repaired by professionals on an accredited brand shop (check your\015\012warranty details for more information on this subject).
\015\012
\015\012If not, remove the casing, locate the menu button's contact switch on\015\012the circuit board, and try to release it using something thin like a\015\012screwdriver, x-acto knife, or set of plyers.
\015\012If this doesn't work, chances are the menu button is stuck on a loop,\015\012sending a continuous signal to the board (which keeps locking/unlocking\015\012the OSD).
\015\012
\015\012If so, your only solution (other than take it to a repair shop) is to\015\012remove it, by prying it off with a screwdriver or set of plyers.
\015\012Of course, you'll lose access to the OSD features, but I guess this is\015\012better than to have a message stuck on front of your screen all the\015\012time..
\015\012
\015\012This is a tried and working solution, since I had this problem myself\015\012(with a Philips 190B monitor), and solved it successfully, with this\015\012method.
I've been getting a OSD Lockout message and cant fix it. Can you explain to me what it is the problem.
\015\012Thanks

I am having graphics problems with my IBM Intellistation Z Pro desktop. The graphics card is a NVIDIA Quadro4 980 XGL. Every time I try to open a game, or even Google Earth, I get white and yellow specks flashing all over the screen, the computer freezes up, and I have to reboot it. I have reinstalled the drivers, and cleaned the dust out of the computer, but neither seemed to fix the problem. My operating system is XP. Any suggestions you can give me would be appreciated. Thanks


These yellow specs are called artifacts, and they appear because the graphics card gets too hot. If cleaning out the dust didn't help, I guess there is something wrong with the cooling on the card. Maybe try booting with the case opened, to see if th ... IBM NVIDIA Quadro4 980XGL (128 MB) Graphic Card
