Using Your Gateway Flat-panel Monitor

Connecting the monitor

To connect the monitor:

1Place the monitor base on a table top, then slide the monitor neck down onto the base until it clicks into place. You may need to press the two buttons on the base to let the monitor slide on smoothly.

2Position your computer and the monitor so you can reach the back of each.

3Connect the power cord to the power connector under the back of the display.

4Connect the blue right-angle VGA video cable to the blue video connector under the back of the display. Although a standard VGA cable is acceptable, we recommend using the right-angle cable (available in the U.S. at www.gateway.com), especially for use with the optional speaker bar. The right-angle cable’s thumbscrews are easier to tighten, and the cord does not get in the way of the speaker bar.

- OR -

If your computer has a digital video connector (DVI), connect a white DVI video cable (available in the U.S. at www.gateway.com) to the white connector under the back of the display. Although a standard DVI cable is acceptable, we recommend using the right-angle cable (available in the U.S. at www.gateway.com), especially for use with the optional speaker bar. The right-angle cable’s thumbscrews are easier to tighten, and the cord does not get in the way of the speaker bar.

5Make sure that your computer is turned off, then connect the other end of the video cable to the matching video port on the back of your computer.

6Plug the power cord into a correctly grounded electrical outlet.

Setting up the optional stand

Attaching the USB stand

In the United States, you can buy an adjustable USB stand from www.gateway.com. The stand can be adjusted for height, tilt, and screen rotation. When connected to your computer’s USB port, you can connect as many as four USB devices to the USB 2.0 ports on the stand.

To attach the adjustable stand:

1Make sure that the monitor is turned off.

2Place the monitor face-down on a soft, non-marring surface. A non-slip mat on a tabletop is ideal. Let the monitor base hang down over the edge of the table.

3Press the two release buttons on the back of the monitor’s original neck, then slide the monitor base out of the neck.
