DVI Symbol onScreen

After upgrading to Windows 7 on my Gateway desktop I now have a blue colored rectange with the letters DVI appearing at random intervals. How do I stop this from recurring

Sounds like your display is searching for a connection from the DVI port. How is your computer connected to the display? Is the display set for auto or is it set manually for the type of connection you're using?

DVI Issue

I have two plugs from the monitor; one white and one blue both are plugged into the tower. Not sure where to find the auto vs. manual option?

You shouldn't need both of them plugged in. Leave the white one attached and uplug the other one. See if that helps.

Hi jrg and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

What is the make and model number of your monitor? This sounds like a monitor issue. Check the monitor manual for details on how to disable the OSD popups.

Your OSD menu buttons are on the right side of your monitor, change the input select to DVI (it may be set to auto), the manual is linked below. Can you try the monitor on another computer that allows you to plug it in with the white (DVI) plug?

Turn off onscreen keyboard
Windows 7 told me how to turn on the onscreen keyboard but I cant find where it tells me to turn it off. I'd think the logical place to tell me that would be with the turn on instruction. But nope I gotta go to the source of real information Windows 7 forum. Have a nice day.
