    I am thinking the same thing. May also be that the volume button on the monitor is stuck somehow!

    Page 5 of the manual shows the volume buttons on the bottom of the monitor.

    Did you try adjusting the volume controls on the monitor? If the bar changes, then we know the volume display box is coming from the monitor itself.

    OMG! I thought to myself, "what volume controls on the monitor?" I never knew they were on the bottom of the frame of the screen! Yes this icon is there, & I can change the "100" to "99,98,etc." by using the left/right buttons. Now I left it at 100, & pressed "Exit" (which also says "Auto"). Don't know if that does the trick but I'll read Monitor info. Anything else I should do?

    Yes. Those are the controls we have been talking about. At least, you confirmed that it is the monitor. Like I said, I've only seen that popup with hardware controls.

    Auto = exit. That should be ok. Make sure there isn't anything that could accidentally hit the volume keys. If the problem persists, you may want to get the monitor exchanged under warranty. If it's out of warranty, then you probably want to shop for a new monitor WITHOUT built-in speakers.

    With help for this thread I found the answer (at least to my issue). The first button on the underside of the monitor has a short. If you hold the button in, the sound bar disappears. I disassembled the monitor (snaps apart) then I tied thin fishing line around the button to keep it in the up position. I'm having trouble locating the part to replace but this will work for now. Numbers you will need off the part is 715G3208-1 and it is called a KEPC. Lots of parts come up under that number but not the KEPC board.

    Welcome to Virtualdr. It would be best for you to start a new thread for your problem and describe it in detail so anyone wanting or able to help you won't have to read through 2 pages of someone else's issue, which may or may not be exactly similar to yours, first.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    We also need more information. If the symptoms are EXACTLY like those in post #1 of this thread, then we need the make and model of the monitor you are using.
