Factory Settings on HP monitor

I played with the settings without knowing what I was doing.  I'd just like the reset the monitor back to factory settings and I cannot find anything that lists them.  (HP w2338h).  I tried disconnecting from both power and computer over night in the hopes that they would reset--nope.  Anyone have any ideas?

A google search for w2338h factory settings turns up the HP page for the w1858 and w2338h monitors, which says that there is a Factory Reset in the menu.

Re: Factory Settings on HP monitor

blargg, thank you--you're fabulous.  I'm embarrassed as I did a google search, but I probably went right past that one.  I was looking for how to change the setting in Windows back to factory settings as that's where I was messing with them.  I'd never paid attention to the buttons on the bottom of my monitor.  :-)
