I have an LG LCD Flatron Monitor that is connected to my small bro's PC.
Today my brother was playing Far Cry 4 Yetis and got so pissed that he punched the Monitor.
Thankfully It didn't break but I can No longer access the monitor settings.
a message "MEHl0 31b(Left a character)OKOBAHE" pops up on pressing any button.
please help.
thanks in advanced
His specs are same as mine only thing is he uses one monitor and I use three

While outwardly the monitor might not look damaged I would say that internally it is damaged and that's why you can't access the monitor settings.
Googling "MEHl0 31b OKOBAHE" brings up nothing to work with, you can have it looked at by a professional repairer but I would say its cheaper to buy another monitor than going down that route.

You should keep valuable objects away from your little brother as he's clearly got no idea of what his anger moments are going to cost him in the future, if it was my little brother the least it would cost him this time is a smack in the kisser.

You should of made him buy the new monitor so he might learn something
All he may have learned is he broke it and you paid to fix it so it could be an expensive future for you
