151 How to adjust the screen resolution

Due to the nature of liquid crystal display (LCD) technology, the picture resolution is always fixed. The best possible picture for your FP2091/FP2092 is achieved with a resolution of 1600x1200. This is called “Native Resolution” or maximal resolution – that is, the clearest picture. Lower resolutions are displayed on a full screen through an interpolation circuit. However flaws do occur with the interpolated resolution.

To take full advantage of LCD technology you should select the native resolution setting of 1600x1200.

1. Open Display Properties and select the Settings tab.

You can open Display Properties by right-clickingon the Windows desktop and selecting Properties from thepop-upmenu.

2. Use the slider in the ‘Screen area’ section to adjust the screen resolution.

Select the recommended resolution of 1600x1200 then click Apply.

If you select some other resolution, be aware that this other resolution is interpolated and may not accurately display the screen image as well as it could do at the native resolution setting.

3.Click OK then Yes.

4.Close the Display Properties window.

161 How to adjust the screen refresh rate

You don’t have to choose the highest possible refresh rate on an LCD display, because it is not technically possible for an LCD display to flicker. The best results are obtained by using the factory modes already set in your computer. There is a table with the factory modes in the specification section of this User’s Manual.

You can choose 60 Hertz for the native resolution of 1600x1200.

1.Double click the Display icon in Control Panel.

2.From the Display Properties window, select the Settings tab and click the Advanced button.

3.Select the Adapter tab, and select an appropriate refresh rate to match one of the applicable factory modes as listed in the specification table.

4.Click Change, OK, then Yes.

5.Close the Display Properties window.

171 How to set the picture optimization

The easiest way to obtain an optimal display is to use the i key function. Press thei key to optimize and adjust the screen settings automatically for you. Refer toHow to adjust your Monitor for button locations and functionality.

If you wish to, you can always adjust the screen settings manually using the buttons on the monitor panel. To assist you in this endeavour, BenQ has provided a screen test image utility which you can use to check for screen color, grayscale and line gradient display.

1.Run the test program auto.exe from CD-ROM.You could also use any other image, such as the desktop of your operating system. However, we recommend that you use auto.exe. As you run auto.exe, a test pattern displays.

2.Press the Enter key to access the monitor On-ScreenDisplay (OSD) menu.

3.If you notice a vertical noise, press the tor ukeys to select Geometry and press the Enter key. Then press thetor ukeys to select Pixel Clock and press the Enter key again. Then, press thetor ukey to adjust the monitor until the noise disappears.

4.If you notice a horizontal noise, press thetor ukeys to select Geometry and press the Enter key. Then press thetor ukeys to select Phase and press the Enter key again. Then, presstor ukeys to adjust the monitor until the noise disappears.

To make sure the i key function performs well, you have to select one of the supported modes. If thei key does not work properly and the NON PRESET MODE message is on the OSD, it means you are not using one of the supported modes. Please set your monitor to use one of the supported modes as listed at the end of this manual.
