monitor 'control menu is locked'

  notrom 18:49 22 Jan 2009

Have just had a new hard drive installed. Only problem (so far) is that there is a black border surrounding the screen image. Tried to adjust image size on old Dell CRT monitor but got message 'control menu is locked'. Have never seen this before and have no idea how to unlock it. Would be very grateful of any suggestions as to how to sort this out. (windows XP).

Fruit Bat, thanks for your help but no luck with it. But I googled the problem and got a result: all you need to do is hold down the menus button for "at least 15 seconds" and, bingo, problem sorted!
