There should be a series of buttons on the front of the monitor that enable you to assess the settings. Try adjusting these. Some monitors (for example my Samsung) have a selection in the menu to "recall" the previous settings so you don't have to repeat the process. Maybe yours does too. Check your manual. If you don't have a manual for the monitor, try going to hp/compaq web support and download one.
