I have a crazy monitor problem. The contrast on the monitor keeps going down on it's own. Like there is a ghost pushing the button. I have to fight with it a lot and push it back up. The buttons are never pushed so I don't see how they could get messed up. Is there a way to fix this? Even as I am typing this I have had to fight with it a few times. The button is not jammed in or anything why would it be doing this? :thumbsup:

The monitor is a Dell - model #:E171fpb.

Hi overeignTalon, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Would you please post the make and model of your computer. If this is a desk top, please post the make and model of the monitor.

:thumbsup: Okay just through it would save space and be easier to just add it at the bottom of the post I already made, but whatever.

The monitor is a Dell - model #:E171fpb.

Did you try different monitor?
Does the same issue happen in Safe Mode?

Once again... In order to further assist you we need to know the make and model of your computer. If it is a custom build, please post the make and model of the internal components.

I know it's the monitor that is the problem. I have had this problem with this monitor on 2 different computers. I know it's not anything like the screen it self or the lights in the screen. suddenly out of no where I see the little window appear on the screen that says contrast and the number just starts going down, little someone is pushing the button. The whole screen gets dark but the little window that shows what level the contrast is at does not get darker. No one ever pushes the buttons on it so I don't see how the button could be jammed. I have tried to jiggle the button to see if I can get it to stop, but that does nothing. It starts pushing the contrast down when ever it wants for as long as it wants. It attacks at random, and seems to be attacking more and more each day. I try pushing the + contrast button to make it go back up, but in the end the ghost always wins. :thumbsup:

I'd say, it's time for a new monitor then...
