    Thought i had a bad vga cable to my lcd (colors would go wack if i bumped the cable, would constantly auto adjust, etc) so i got a new one and plugged it in today. Colors now look solid :bowdown: but its still auto-adjusting once in a while. Also, since all this started happening the menu buttons (including power) do not function on the monitor. Reeeeaally annoying, was hoping the new cable would fix it.

    Any other ideas what could be causing this? Next thought is moving the power cable to a different outlet to isolate it from my powerstrip and computer.

    Plugged it directly into the wall and it let me open the menu. Then, 5 seconds later back to teh same old shit, no more menu functions.
