Auto Adjustment in Progress refuses to go away.

Again, if I'm posting this in the wrong forum or anything, please forgive me.

I have a rather irritating problem.

That is, a white box with the words "Auto Adjustment in Progress" keeps popping up. Now, I thought it was spyware and launched a couple of spyware detectors(Spybot and Adaware, plus one more) to go get it. When this didn't work, I concluded that it was probably some kind of system bug.

Now, since this message doesn't have a conventional frame and places itself quite firmly in front of everything else, I reasoned that it was the screen itself causing the problem. Well, I googled it and found a solution for dell computers was to use the OSB button.

I tried. While I keep the OSB menu button down, the message doesn't appear, but neither does the OSB menu. This message pops up once I remove my finger from the button.

I expect I've done some quite basic mistake, but please, I need help. What should I do? My monitor is an HP L1940 desktop. I have temporarily solved the problem by lodging a battery between the keyboard and the OSB button, but I'd really prefer a 'real' solution.

Also, please, if it's not too much of a bother, do use layman's terms...

Sounds to me that it's a direct monitor issue.
Something with synchronization, I'm guessing.
