Connecting USB cables

Your monitor has a built-in, four-port USB 2.0 hub that lets you conveniently connect USB devices. Because your computer case may be under your desk or inside a cabinet, these monitor-mounted USB ports can be much easier to access. To use the monitor’s USB ports, you must first connect the monitor to a USB port on your computer. Because the USB hub uses power from the monitor, it does not require its own power connection.

To connect USB cables:

Important

The built-in USB 2.0 hub provides only low-speed connections if its USB in port is connected to a USB 1.1 port on your computer or on a USB hub.

Tip

Use the USB 2.0 ports on the back of the monitor for connecting USB devices you want to keep connected most of the time, such as a keyboard, a mouse, or a printer. Use the USB 2.0 ports on the side of the monitor for connecting USB devices that are frequently disconnected, such as cameras, flash drives, and USB hard drives.

1Connect the included USB cable to the USB in (“B” type) port on the back of your monitor, then connect the other end of the cable to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.

Connecting power

To connect power:

1Position your monitor so you can reach the back, then connect the power cord to the power connector under the back of the monitor.

2Plug the power cord into a correctly grounded power outlet. We recommend using a surge protector to protect your monitor from voltage spikes.

3To make sure that the monitor’s power is correctly connected, check the power button on the front button panel. The power icon on the power button should be glowing purple. If the power icon is not visible, power is not connected.

Connecting a security cable

You can secure your monitor to your computer desk (or to another heavy object) with a cable lock. To connect a cable lock, follow the cable lock’s instructions to connect it to the Kensington lock slot on the back of your monitor (cable lock not included).

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. With EzTune software installed on your computer, a sensor inside your monitor detects the rotation mode (portrait or landscape) your monitor is in, and rotates the screen image accordingly.

When the stand is connected to your computer’s USB port, you can connect up to four USB devices to the USB 2.0 ports on the stand. Including the ports on your monitor, you could have a total of eight easy-to-access USB ports on your monitor and stand together.

To attach the adjustable stand:

1Make sure that the monitor is turned off.

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

3Remove the two screws from the neck hinge, then remove the neck from the LCD panel. Do not discard the screws.

4Place the hinge cover over the hinge, then attach the hinge cover using the screws you removed from the original neck hinge. The hinge cover came with your monitor.

5Remove the four small screws from the back of the LCD panel. Do not discard the four screws.
