bars at the top and bottom. PC input: Stretches the image to fit the entire screen.
Zoom mode crops off a portion of a widescreen image in order to fill the entire
screen with a distortion-free and black bar-free image. PC input: Zooms the
image to fill the screen from top to bottom with black bars on the left and right
sides of the image.
1:1 mode preserves a movie’s original aspect ratio, so a standard broadcast or
full-frame movie appears with black bars on the left and right of the image. PC input:
Preserves the original aspect ratio of the resolution by using black bars on the left

normal and is part of the data embedded in any broadcast video signal. To avoid seeing these anomalies,
turn Overscan on. (Component and HDMI video only)
Noise Reduction—Uses noise reduction filters that adapt to the amount of noise and motion from the
video source.
Film Mode Detection—Film Mode Detection detects frame rates of the source image and adapts the frame
rate of the display for ultimate image quality.
Bad Edit Detection and Correction—corrects incorrectly synchronized video.
Auto Video Enhance—Enables DCDi, Cross Color Reduction, and MADI for optimized video performance.
DCDi by Faroudja—Directional Correlation De-interlacing reduces jagged edge artifacts on diagonal lines.
Cross Color Reduction—Reduces cross-color artifacts, such as unintentional flashing colors or rainbow
patterns, that result from some types of video signals.
MADI—Motion-Adaptive De-Interlacing ensures a more static (flicker-free) display image for image sections
not containing moving elements, and ensures smoother edges for moving elements.

Using Your Gateway Flat-Panel Monitor
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 a video-intensive
program, 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

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
<55 W
Standby
Orange
<2 W
Off
Purple
<1 W
To “wake” your monitor when it is in Standby/Active Off mode, move the mouse or press any
keyboard key.
You can change your monitor’s power management settings using the Windows Control Panel. For

Your monitor has pixels that are always dark or too bright
• This condition is normal and inherent in the TFT technology used in active-matrix LCD
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.
Configuring video settings
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 most up-to-date video drivers. The Web
sites for the major video card manufacturers are:

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,
choose Wide, Zoom, 1:1 (normal), or Panoramic 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 or Analog 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, the Volume tab, 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 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 Volume tab, 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 Volume tab, then click Advanced.

HDCP
What is HDCP and how should you troubleshoot it?
High-bandwidth Digital 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-top box) 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-converting can cause “noise”
or “trash.” The signal on DVI-D is 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-equipped component.
• The component must be restarted to establish renegotiation.
For example, while watching a movie on a HDCP-enabled DVD 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 the
HDCP-enabled DVD 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-plug all 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 Correlation De-Interlacing.
It was initially designed for fast-action video-based material. 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.
