On screen display on L2251p wide



I have a T410 in a MiniDock3 connected to a L2251p wide via DisplayPort.

The problem i have is that everytime when there is a sound event, it will display the on screen Volume bar on the LCD.

Even if I set it to 0, or mute it all together, the Volume bar is always visible.

This is really anoying, as it will be in the foreground for a few secs, and you are not able to see what is below.

Everytime i have to wait the few secs to continue working.


There is no option to disable this behaviour on the LCD.

At the moment i would rate this as a FW bug, and would like to receive a FW update for my LCD to have this options available, or at least have the feature removed.


Thanks for looking,

Hi Chris,

Are you running Win 7? If so, then try this, right click on desktop -> Screen resolution -> Advanced settings -> On-Screen display -> uncheck "Enable On-Screen display" -> OK.

Let us know if this helps.

Excellent Smiley Wink


This fixed the "problem".

I wasn't aware that you are able to control it via the driver.
