Using Your Gateway Flat-PanelMonitor

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 and screen resolution are two of the most basic monitor settings you may need to change to suit your needs.

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.

The image looks stretched or fuzzy when you connect your monitor to your computer.

You must adjust the operating system’s display settings to match your monitor’s optimal (native) 1680 × 1050 setting. For information on adjusting settings in Windows, see“Changing color depth and screen resolution” on page 10.

You do not see 1680 × 1050 available in the Windows display control panel.

Make sure that your video card can display at 1680 × 1050 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

When you run your games, you do not see 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.

When you display video from a component video source, the video looks overly compressed.

See your video device’s user manual to adjust the video or TV format output to 16:9. Setting this option to 4:3 results in compressed video. This is done differently on all brands of video devices, so it is important that you read your video device’s user guide or the help tools within your video device’s software.

You see black bars on left and right of the video.

Touch Menu, Video Adjust, then touch Video Scaling. To fill more of the screen, chooseWide,Zoom,1:1 (normal), orPanoramic modes.

When you try to use Picture in Picture (PIP) component video at 480p, 720p, or 1080i, either no video is displayed or you see corrupted video.

This is a normal operation of your monitor. If you want to view component video in PIP, adjust the video output of your external device to 480i.

You need to know whether you can connect the HDMI output of your external video device to the DVI port of your monitor.

Important

Although the HDMI interface supports audio, no audio is sent to your monitor. You must separately connect the audio output of your video device to an external audio amplifier.

Yes, you can. When using the digital connection, your video content remains completely digital from your external video device (such as a cable box, HD DVR, or DVD player). This results in a superior digital image. Also, in this configuration the PIP can support the input of all HD resolutions.

Gaming

You need to know whether you can connect your game console to this monitor.

Yes, you can, if your game console supports HDMI or component video. Using optional video cables, you can connect your game console directly to your monitor. If your game console supports Component (YPbPr), this results in the best picture quality.

Speaker bar does not work

I installed the speaker bar, but no sound is coming out of the speakers.

Make sure that the speaker bar power cord is plugged into the speaker bar power connector under your monitor.

Check the position of the audio input selection switch on the left side of the speaker bar.

If you are using HDMI as the audio and video source, make sure that the HDMI audio cable is connected to the HDMI audio output on your monitor. Also make sure that your HDMI audio source is set to PCM orAnalog audio.

I checked all the connections, but I still do not get any sound.

Your headphone/speaker jack may have been muted using Windows sound controls. To check your headphone/speaker mute settings, click the speaker icon in the Windows taskbar, or click Start,Control Panel,Sounds and Audio Devices, theVolume tab, then click

Advanced. For optimum volume control using the speaker bar, we recommend that you set the Windows volumemid-waybetween the lowest and highest setting.

I want to plug in my headphones, but there is a headphone jack on both sides of the speaker bar. Which should I use?

You can use either jack or both jacks at the same time.

The sound coming from the speakers sounds distorted.

Turn down the volume until the distortion disappears.

Check the audio output volume of the sound device the speaker bar is connected to. If the audio device’s output volume is set too high, the speaker bar’s sound may always be distorted. To adjust the audio device’s output volume, see the device’s user guide. To adjust the volume in Windows XP, click the speaker icon in the Windows taskbar, or click Start,

Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices, the Volumetab, then click Advanced. For optimum volume control using the speaker bar, we recommend that you set the Windows volume mid-way between the lowest and highest setting.

I plugged my microphone into the speaker bar’s microphone jack, but my computer cannot record any sound.

Make sure that the speaker bar’s pink microphone plug is connected to the microphone jack on your computer.

Your microphone jack may have been muted using Windows sound controls. To check your microphone’s mute settings, click the speaker icon in the Windows taskbar, or click Start,

Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices, the Volumetab, then click Advanced.

HDCP

What is HDCP and how should you troubleshoot it?

High-bandwidthDigital Content Protection (HDCP) is a specification developed by the Intel® Corporation to protect digital entertainment content that uses a digital visual interface (DVI).

HDCP encrypts the transmission of digital content (signal) between the video source (computer, DVD player, or set-topbox) and the digital display (monitor, digital television/DTV, or projector). HDCP is not designed to prevent copying or recording of digital content, but only to protect the integrity of the content as transmitted.

You see “noise” or “trash” on the screen.

When your display’s digital capabilities exceed a digital broadcast signal, the signal is increased (up-converted)to match the display capabilities.Up-convertingcan cause “noise” or “trash.” The signal onDVI-Dis HDCP encoded. Stop and restart the source to allow renegotiation.

How HDCP works.

Implementation of HDCP requires a license obtainable from the Digital Content Protection, LLC, which then issues a set of unique secret device keys to all authorized devices. During authentication, the receiving device only accepts content after it acknowledges the keys. To further prevent stealing of the data or line tapping, the transmitter and receiver generate a shared secret value that is constantly checked throughout the transmission. After authentication is established, the transmitter encrypts the data and sends it to the receiver for decryption.

You lose the signal to the display while watching a movie on a HDCP-equippedcomponent.

The component must be restarted to establish renegotiation.

For example, while watching a movie on a HDCP-enabledDVD player, you change the receiving device (DTV, monitor, or projector) input to watch broadcast TV, then change the input back to watch the DVD movie. However, you are unable to watch the movie. This is because when the input was changed, the receiver lost the HDCP signal. Restart theHDCP-enabledDVD player to allow renegotiation.

A movie starts, but then slowly fades to static.

The receiving device is not HDCP compatible or it is not negotiating correctly. Restart the video source and re-plugall video cables from the source to the TV.

How to determine whether a component is HDCP compliant.

If the video source device does not have a DVI or HDMI connection, it is not HDCP compliant.

DCDi by Faroudja

What is DCDi by Faroudja?

DCDi® by Faroudja is a video mode algorithm that stands for Directional CorrelationDe-Interlacing.It was initially designed forfast-actionvideo-basedmaterial. Its general purpose is to reduce jagged edges along diagonal lines caused by interpolation. Utilizing this algorithm, DCDi does not simply weave together two fields of video that match. DCDi creates new information through interpolation which “smooths” the diagonal edges. DCDi constantly monitors edge transitions and fills in any of the gaps that need smoothing.
