  1. I am using a Pentium, with windows xp service pack2, direct x9.

    My graphics card is geforce fx5500, forceware version: 81.98

    My dell monitor is Dell E152FP

    I want to ask why my brightness/contrast screen of the monitor keeps popping up?

    Is it due to viruses or malware? (which I dun think so as my virus, spyware are up to date)

    Is it due to my monitor malfunctioning or graphics card?

    Is it because I never install upgrades of geforce?

    Please help.

    Virus's /spyware can't affect your monitor's OSD from popping up. That is controlled purely by the monitor. Probably, wither the OSD button is stuck pressed and comes up every once in a while, or there is some dirt in the button, producing the same effect.

    I think the problem still exists after I open the monitor and do the required cleaning
