Default Dell Ultrasharp 2407WFP monitor button not responding

Hi everyone,
I have a Dell Ultrasharp 2407WFP monitor. The middle button that opens the Menu doesn't work. When I press it, nothing pops up - and in addition, I am not able to push the power off button after I press the menu button.

I have to pull the plug on the back to shut it off, and then I can put the power cord back in, and the power button works again. However, if I try to push the menu button again, nothing shows, and the power button is again nonoperational after this.

Any ideas why this may be happening? Thanks.

RMA it. There is something wrong with it.

Bah, I bought it from a person on Craigslist a month ago... can't RMA. *sigh*

call up dell and see if there's anything they can do for you.
