Changing Windows screen settings

Adjusting the color depth and screen area are two of the most basic display settings you may need to change. You can also adjust settings such as the screen background and screen saver.

Changing color depth and screen resolution

Color depth is the number of colors your computer uses to display images on your monitor. Most images look best displayed with the maximum number of colors available. If the color in your images seems “false” or “jumpy,” especially after you have played a game or run avideo-intensiveprogram, check the color depth setting and return it to the highest color setting, if necessary.

Screen resolution is the number of pixels (individual colored dots) your computer uses to display images on your monitor. The higher the resolution, the more information and screen components (such as icons and menu bars) can be displayed on your monitor.

Help

For more information about adjusting the screen, click Start, then clickHelp and

Support. Typeadjusting monitor settings in theSearch Help box, then press ENTER.

To change the color depth or screen resolution in Windows Vista:

2To change the color depth, click the Colors list, then click the color depth you want.

Low (8-bit)= 256 colors

Medium (16-bit)= 65,500 colors

Highest (24-bit) = 16,700,000 colors

3To change the screen resolution, drag the Resolution slider to the size you prefer.

4Click Apply. If the new settings do not look right, clickNo. If the new settings make the screen illegible and you cannot clickNo, the settings return to their previous values after several seconds.

Power management

Energy declaration

When connected to a computer that supports the VESA Display Power Management Signaling (DPMS) Protocol, your monitor can conserve significant energy by reducing power consumption during periods of non-use.When your computer goes into the energy saving mode, your monitor will then enter the Active Off mode (sleep). In the Active Off mode the Power LED will still show orange.

Use these conventions and the power can be reduced to the following levels:

VESA State

LED Indicator

Power Consumption

 

 

 

On

Blue

<20 W

 

 

 

Standby

Orange

<2 W

No picture

Make sure that the power cord is connected correctly to both the back of your monitor and the power outlet. For more information about connecting the power cord, see “Connecting power” on page 4.

Make sure that the video cable is connected securely to the back of your monitor and computer. For more information about connecting the video cable, see “Connecting video inputs” on page 3.

Make sure that your monitor is turned on.

If you have the monitor connected to your notebook’s video port, you have two options:

If your notebook supports dual displays, you can use both your notebook’s display and this monitor in extended desktop multi-monitormode. See Windows Help to learn how to enable multiple monitors.

You can also use this monitor as your primary monitor and not use the notebook’s screen. Notebook computers typically have an FN key combination that lets you toggle between your notebook’s display, an externally attached display, and both at the same time. See your notebook’s user guide for more information.

If the power LED is orange:

Make sure that your computer is turned on.

Move the mouse or press any key on the keyboard to bring your monitor out of sleep mode.

Restart your computer with your monitor turned on.

Make sure that the video cable is not damaged.

Check the end of the video cable for any pins that might be bent or pushed in.

Turn off your monitor and unplug the video cable from the back of your computer. Turn your monitor back on and wait for ten seconds. If your monitor is functioning correctly, a “No Signal” message appears. For more information about connecting the video cable, see “Connecting video inputs” on page 3.

Use the position controls to adjust the image. For instructions on how to adjust the display image position, see “Adjusting monitor settings” on page 6.

If the image looks stretched or fuzzy, you must adjust the operating system’s display settings to match the monitor’s optimal (native) 1440 × 900 setting. For information on adjusting settings, see“Changing Windows screen settings” on page 9.

If you are trying to select 1440 × 900 but it is not available in the Windows display control panel:

Make sure that your video card can display at 1440 × 900 resolution.

This may be caused by older video drivers on your computer. See the Gateway support Web site (www.gateway.com) for updated video drivers for your computer. You can also go directly to your video card’s support Web site for the mostup-to-datevideo drivers. The Web sites for the major video card manufacturers are:

ATI®: www.ati.com Intel®: www.intel.com Nvidia®: www.nvidia.com

If your games do not have support for widescreen displays:

Newer games are adding support for widescreen displays as the widescreen format becomes more popular. Check the game’s Web site for updates. You can also consult the following Web site for specific settings and options to configure older games to support widescreen: www.widescreengamingforum.com.

Some adjustments may require you to make changes to the Windows System Registry. We recommend making a complete system backup before changing the System Registry.

Your monitor has pixels that are always dark or too bright

This condition is normal and inherent in the TFT technology used in active-matrixLCD screens. Gateway’s inspection standards keep these to a minimum. If you feel these pixels are unacceptably numerous or dense on your display, contact Gateway Customer Care to identify whether a repair or replacement is justified based on the number of pixels affected.

Connecting a game console

If you want to connect your game console to this monitor, use optional video cables (available at www.gateway.com if ordering from the United States). To determine the type of cable you need, see your gaming console’s documentation.

The product you have purchased contains extracted natural resources that have been used in the manufacturing process. This product may contain substances known to be hazardous to the environment or to human health.

To prevent releases of harmful substances into the environment and to maximize the use of our natural resources, Gateway provides the following information on how you can responsibly recycle or reuse most of the materials in your “end of life” product.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (commonly known as WEEE) should never be disposed of in the municipal waste stream (residential garbage collection). The “Crossed-OutWaste Bin” label affixed to this product is your reminder to dispose of your “end of life” product properly.

Substances such as glass, plastics, and certain chemical compounds are highly recoverable, recyclable, and reusable. You can do your part for the environment by following these simple steps:

When your electrical or electronic equipment is no longer useful to you, “take it back” to your local or regional waste collection administration for recycling.

In some cases, your “end of life” product may be “traded in” for credit towards the purchase of new Gateway equipment. Call Gateway to see if this program is available in your area.

If you need further assistance in recycling, reusing, or trading in your “end of life” product, you may contact us at the Customer Care number listed in your product’s user guide and we will be glad to help you with your effort.

Finally, we suggest that you practice other environmentally friendly actions by understanding and using the energy-savingfeatures of this product (where applicable), recycling the inner and outer packaging (including shipping containers) this product was delivered in, and by disposing of or recycling used batteries properly.

With your help, we can reduce the amount of natural resources needed to produce electrical and electronic equipment, minimize the use of landfills for the disposal of “end of life” products, and generally improve our quality of life by ensuring that potentially hazardous substances are not released into the environment and are disposed of properly.
