3. Assembling your monitor hardware

If the computer is turned on you must turn it off before continuing.

Do not plug-in or turn-on the power to the monitor until instructed to do so.

1. Attach the monitor base.

Please be careful to prevent damage to the monitor. Placing the screen surface on an object like a stapler or a mouse will crack the glass or damage the LCD substrate voiding your warranty. Sliding or scraping the monitor around on your desk will scratch or damage the monitor surround and controls.

Protect the monitor and screen by clearing a flat open area on your desk and placing a soft item like the monitor packaging bag on the desk for padding.

Gently lay the screen face down on a flat clean padded surface.

While holding the monitor firmly against the desk, pull the monitor stand arm upwards clear of the monitor.

Orient and align the stand base socket with the end of the stand arm, then push them together until they click and lock into place.

Gently attempt to pull them back apart to check that they have properly engaged.

Carefully lift the monitor, turn it over and place it upright on its stand on a flat even surface.

You should position the monitor and angle the screen to minimize unwanted reflections from other light sources.

2. Connect the PC video cable.

Do not use both DVI-D cable and D-Sub cable on the same PC. The only case in which both cables can be used is if they are connected to two different PCs with appropriate video systems. (Not available for analog-only models)

Connect one end of the DVI-D cable to the monitor DVI-D socket and the other end to the DVI-D port on your computer. (optional, not available for analog-only models)

The DVI-D format is used for direct digital connection between source video and digital LCD monitors or projectors. The digital video signals produce a superior quality picture than analog video signals.

Connect the plug of the D-Sub cable (at the end without the ferrite filter) to the monitor D-Sub socket. Connect the other plug of the D-Sub cable (at the end with the ferrite filter) to the computer video D-Sub socket.

Tighten all finger screws to prevent the plugs from accidently falling out during use.

3. Connect the audio cable. (optional)

Connect the audio cable between the socket on the rear of the monitor and your computer audio outlet.

If you wish, you may connect an earphone into the earphone socket located on the side panel of the monitor.

4. Connect the power cable to the monitor.

Plug one end of the power cord into the socket labelled ‘POWER IN’ on the rear of the monitor. Do not connect the other end to a power outlet just yet.

5. Route the cables via the cable clip.

Release the cable retaining clip by squeezing the clip inwards as illustrated. Position the cables together and reinsert the clip over them to retain the cables neatly in place behind the monitor stand.

6. Connect-to and turn-on the power.

Plug the other end of the power cord into a power outlet and turn it on.

Picture may differ from product supplied for your region.

Sliding or scraping the monitor around on your desk will scratch or damage the monitor surround and controls.

Protect the monitor and screen by clearing a flat open area on your desk and placing a soft item like a towel on the desk for padding, before laying the screen face down on a flat clean padded surface.

2.Press the locking clips to detach the monitor base from the monitor stand arm.

4. Getting the most from your BenQ monitor

To gain the most benefit from your new BenQ color LCD flat screen monitor, you should install the custom BenQ LCD Monitor driver software as provided on the BenQ LCD Monitor CD-ROM.

The circumstances under which you connect and install your BenQ LCD Monitor will determine which process you need to follow to successfully install the BenQ LCD Monitor driver software. These circumstances relate to which version of Microsoft Windows you are using, and whether you are connecting the monitor and installing the software onto a new computer (without existing monitor driver software), or whether you are upgrading an existing installation (which already has existing monitor driver software) with a newer monitor.

In either case however, the very next time you turn on your computer (after connecting the monitor to your computer), Windows will automatically recognise the new (or different) hardware, and will launch its Found New Hardware wizard.

Follow the wizard instructions until it asks you to select a monitor model. At that point, click the Have Disk button, insert the BenQ LCD Monitor CD-ROM and select the appropriate monitor model. Further details and step-by-step instructions for both an automatic (new) or upgrade (existing) installation follow. See:

How to install the monitor on a new computer on page 12.

How to upgrade the monitor on an existing computer on page 13

If you require a User Name and Password to login to your Windows computer, you must be logged on as an Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group in order to install the monitor driver software. Furthermore, if your computer is connected to a network which has security access requirements, network policy settings may prevent you from installing software on your computer.
