4. Getting the most from your BenQ monitor
To gain the most benefit from your new BenQ color LCD flat screen monitor, you should install
the custom BenQ LCD Monitor driver software as provided on the BenQ LCD Monitor CD-ROM.
The circumstances under which you connect and install your BenQ LCD Monitor will determine
which process you need to follow to successfully install the BenQ LCD Monitor driver software.
These circumstances relate to which version of Microsoft Windows you are using, and whether
you are connecting the monitor and installing the software onto a new computer (without existing
monitor driver software), or whether you are upgrading an existing installation (which already has
existing monitor driver software) with a newer monitor.
In either case however, the very next time you turn on your computer (after connecting the
monitor to your computer), Windows will automatically recognise the new (or different)
hardware, and will launch its Found New Hardware wizard.
Follow the wizard instructions until it asks you to select a monitor model. At that point, click the
Have Disk button, insert the BenQ LCD Monitor CD-ROM and select the appropriate monitor
model. Further details and step-by-step instructions for both an automatic (new) or upgrade
(existing) installation follow. See:
• To install the monitor on a new computer on page 14.
• To upgrade the monitor on an existing computer on page 15
If you require a User Name and Password to login to your Windows computer, you must be logged on as
an Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group in order to install the monitor driver software.
Furthermore, if your computer is connected to a network which has security access requirements, network
policy settings may prevent you from installing software on your computer.

To install the monitor on a new computer
This instruction details the procedure for selecting and installing the BenQ LCD Monitor driver
software on a new computer which has never had a monitor driver installed before. This
instruction is only suitable for a computer which has never been used before, and for which the
BenQ LCD Monitor is the first ever monitor to be connected to it.
If you are adding the BenQ LCD Monitor to an existing computer that has already had another monitor
connected to it (and has monitor driver software installed), you should not be following these instructions.
You should instead be following the instructions for To upgrade the monitor on an existing computer
on page 15.
1. Follow the instructions in How to assemble your monitor hardware on page 7.
When Windows starts, it will automatically detect the new monitor and launch the Found New Hardware Wizard. Follow the prompts until it displays the option to Install Hardware Device drivers.
2. Insert the BenQ LCD Monitor CD-ROM into a CD drive on the computer.
3. Check Search for a suitable driver for my device option, and click Next.
4. Check the option for CD-ROM drives (uncheck all others) and click Next.
5. Look to confirm that the wizard has selected the correct name of your monitor as “BenQ
FP222Wa” and click Next.
6. Click Finish.
7. Restart the computer.

To upgrade the monitor on an existing computer
This instruction details the procedure for manually updating the existing monitor driver software
on your Microsoft Windows computer. It is currently tested as compatible (and recommended
only) for Windows XP and Windows Vista Operating System (OS).
The BenQ LCD Monitor driver for your model may well function perfectly with other versions of
Windows, however, as at the time of writing, BenQ has done no testing of this driver on other versions of
Windows and cannot guarantee its operation on those systems.
Installing monitor driver software involves selecting an appropriate information file (.inf) on the
BenQ LCD Monitor CD-ROM for the particular model monitor you have connected, and letting
Windows install the corresponding driver files from the CD. You need only steer it in the right
direction. Windows has an Upgrade Device Driver Wizard to automate the task and guide you
through the file selection and installation process.

5. How to adjust the screen resolution
Due to the nature of liquid crystal display (LCD) technology, the picture resolution is always fixed.
The best possible picture for your FP222W a is achieved with a resolution of 1680 x 1050. This is
called “Native Resolution” or maximal resolution – that is, the clearest picture. Lower resolutions
are displayed on a full screen through an interpolation circuit. Image blurring across pixel
boundaries can occur with the interpolated resolution depending upon the image type and its
initial resolution.
To take full advantage of LCD technology you should select the native resolution setting of 1680 x 1050
on your PC screen resolution setting as described below. Be aware that not all PC video cards provide
this resolution value. If your doesn't, check with the video card manufacturer's website for an updated
driver for your particular model PC video card which supports this resolution. Software video drivers are
often updated and available for new hardware video resolutions. If necessary, you may need to replace
and update the PC video card hardware to be able to support the native resolution of the monitor.
1. Open Display Properties and select the Settings tab.
You can open Display Properties by right-clicking on the Windows desktop and selecting Properties
from the pop-up menu.
2. Use the slider in the ‘Screen area’ section to adjust the screen resolution.
Select the recommended resolution of 1680 x 1050 then click Apply.
If you select some other resolution, be aware that this other resolution is interpolated and may not
accurately display the screen image as well as it could do at the native resolution setting.
3. Click OK then Yes.
4. Close the Display Properties window.

6. How to adjust the screen refresh rate
You don’t have to choose the highest possible refresh rate on an LCD display, because it is not
technically possible for an LCD display to flicker. The best results are obtained by using the factory
modes already set in your computer. There is a table with the factory modes in the specification
section of this Users Manual: Supported PC Timings on page 34
You can choose 60 Hertz for the native resolution of 1680 x 1050.
1. Double click the Display icon in Control Panel.
2. From the Display Properties window, select the Settings tab and click the Advanced button.
3. Select the Adapter tab, and select an appropriate refresh rate to match one of the applicable
factory modes as listed in the specification table.
4. Click Change, OK, then Yes.
5. Close the Display Properties window.

7. Picture optimization
The easiest way to obtain an optimal display from an analog (D-Sub) input is to use the i key
function. Press the i key to optimize the currently displayed image to the screen.
Please ensure that the connected graphic card on your computer is set to the native resolution of the
monitor (1680 x 1050) when you use the i key function.
If you wish, you can always adjust the screen geometric settings manually using geometry menu
items. To assist you in this endeavour, BenQ has provided a screen test image utility which you can
use to check for screen color, grayscale and line gradient display.
1. Run the test program auto.exe from CD-ROM. You could also use any other image, such as
the desktop of your operating system. However, we recommend that you use auto.exe. As you
run auto.exe, a test pattern displays.
2. Press the i key on the monitor.
3. Press the MENU key to access the monitor On-Screen Display (OSD) menu.
4. Use the t or u keys to select DISPLAY and press the ENTER key to enter the menu.
5. If you notice a vertical noise (like a curtain effect-shimmering of vertical lines), press the t
or u keys to select Pixel Clock and press the ENTER key. Then press the t or u keys to
adjust the monitor until the noise disappears.
6. If you notice a horizontal noise, press the t or u keys to select Phase and press the ENTER
key. Then press the t or u keys adjust the monitor until the noise disappears.

working through the instructions in the How to adjust the screen refresh rate on page 19 section It
is normal for blurring to occur due to conduction losses in extension cables. You can minimize
these losses by using an extension cable with better conduction quality or with a built-in booster.

• Image disruption may occur as a result of signal frequency differences from graphic cards which
do not correspond with the usual standard. This is not, however, an error. You may improve this
situation by altering an automatic setting or by manually changing the phase setting and the pixel
frequency from the “Display” menu.
• To extend the service life of the product, we recommend that you use your computer's power
management function.
