Using Your Gateway Flat-Panel Monitor

Connecting your monitor

To set up your monitor, first unpack the box, unwrap the components, then make your cable connections.

Connecting video inputs

To connect video sources to your monitor:

1Position your computer and your monitor so you can reach the back of each.

2If your computer has a digital video connector (DVI), connect a DVI video cable (not included) to the white connector on the display.

- OR -

Connect the blue VGA video cable to the blue VGA video connector on the display.

- OR -

Connect an HDMI cable to the HDMI port on the display, or connect component video cables to the component video ports on the display.

Important

For best audio and video performance, we suggest using HDMI. The digital audio signal is conveyed along the same cable as the digital video cable, and no additional audio connection is required. You may need to set your video source’s audio mode to PCM or ANALOG to hear the audio. See your source device’s user guide for more information.
