Connecting the monitor
To connect the monitor:
1 Position your computer and the monitor so you can reach the back of each.
2 Connect the power cord to the power connector under the back of the
monitor.
3 Connect the blue VGA video cable to the blue video connector under the
back of the monitor.
- OR If your computer has a digital video connector (DVI), connect a DVI video
cable (not included) to the white connector under the back of the monitor.
You can buy a DVI video cable from www.gateway.com.

Connecting the monitor
4 Make sure that your computer is turned off, then connect the other end
of the video cable to the matching video port on the back of your
computer.
5 Plug the power cord into a correctly grounded electrical outlet.
Warning
Because lifting your monitor off the
desktop surface takes weight off from the
stand, the stand will extend suddenly,
possibly causing damage to equipment
or injury to yourself.
To avoid injury, always lift the monitor so
that the stand adjusts to its full height
before moving the monitor or turning it
around.

Adjusting the stand
Rotating the screen image
Depending on the graphics card or device driver on your computer, you may
be able to rotate the on-screen image.
To rotate the screen image:
■
On Gateway computers, you can rotate the image by pressing
CTRL+ALT+[LEFT ARROW], and return it to normal by pressing
Ctrl+Alt+[UP ARROW].
For more information, click Start, Control Panel, Appearance and
Themes (if necessary), Display, the Settings tab, Advanced, then click the
graphics card-specific tab.
Adjusting monitor height tension
The stand is factory adjusted to maintain the adjusted height for Gateway
17-inch and 19-inch flat-panel monitors. If you use this stand with a lighter
monitor without adjusting the weight setting of the stand, the stand will raise
your monitor, and if you use a heavier monitor, the stand will lower your
monitor.
To test and adjust your monitor’s height tension:
1 Move your monitor up and down through its entire vertical range. If it does
not stay in place when you let go, you need to change the adjustable
stand’s height tension. You also need to adjust the stand if the amounts
of force required to raise and lower the monitor are not equal.
2 Adjust the height tension screw so the monitor stays in place when you
let go. If the monitor lowers by itself when you let go, turn the screw
clockwise several complete turns. If the monitor rises when you let go, turn
the screw counter-clockwise several complete turns. You may need to turn
the screw several times before the tension is correct for your monitor.

3 Adjust the height tension screw so raising and lowering forces are equal.
After the forces are equalized, turn the tension screw clockwise 2 to 4 turns
to slightly decrease the lifting tension.
4 For optimum viewing, adjust the height so the top of monitor is about
1 inch below eye level.
Adjusting tilt (vertical viewing angle) tension
To test and adjust tilt tension:
1 Tilt the monitor back and forth through its entire tilt range. If it does not
stay in place or if movement in one direction is stiff, the tilt tension needs
adjustment.
2 Pull the black rubber cover away from the top of the stand, then hold it
back with one hand.
Increase tilt tension (clockwise)
Decrease tilt tension
(counter-clockwise)
3 To increase tilt tension, turn the screw clockwise with a Phillips
screwdriver. To decrease tilt tension, turn the screw counter-clockwise.
Adjust until the monitor stays in place and the up and down tilting
tensions are equal.

Adjusting the stand
Ergonomic guidelines
The recommended mounting heights, the range of adjustability required to
provide comfortable use by a range of users, and the forces required for making
adjustments to the monitor are based upon the following guildelines. These
guidelines are based on available scientific literature and published standards.
Screen height
The recommended screen height for monitors (except in special circumstances,
such as for bifocal use) is that the top of the monitor should be set at or slightly
below (about 1 inch, or 25 mm) the user’s eye level while the user is sitting in
a comfortable working posture. This guideline places the center of the screen
at an ideal 15° to 20° viewing angle for most desktop monitors. If the monitor
has multiple users, the screen height should be easily adjustable to
accommodate each user’s height and preference.
Screen tilt
The screen should be tilted so the user’s line of sight is perpendicular to the
screen. This angle creates the most consistent viewing distance when scanning
from the top of the screen to the bottom. You may need to adjust lighting to
avoid screen glare when the screen is tilted upward.
Screen distance from user
The monitor screen should first be placed at arms length from the user, then
adjusted back and forth to suit individual preference. Vertical adjustments
should not result in a change in viewing distance.
Stand adjustment forces
The force required to make any adjustment to the stand (height, tilt, pan, or
portrait/landscape orientation) should not exceed 5.1 lbs. (2.32 kg).

Color depth, screen resolution, and screen fonts are three of the most basic
monitor settings you may need to change.
Adjusting the color depth
Color depth is the number of colors your video card uses. Most images look best
displayed with the maximum number of colors available.
Windows lets you choose from several color depth settings for the monitor. We
recommend that you use the 32-bit True Color setting or the highest setting
available at all times.
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 32-bit True Color, if necessary.

Power management
ENERGY STAR
As an ENERGY STAR® Partner, Gateway has determined that this product meets
the ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy efficiency.
This monitor complies with the EPA’s International ENERGY STAR Program,
which is a program designed to encourage manufacturers of computer
equipment to build circuitry into their products to reduce energy consumption
during time of non-use.
Energy declaration
When connected to a computer that supports the VESA Display Power
Management Signaling (DPMS) Protocol, the monitor can conserve significant
energy by reducing power consumption during periods of non-use. When your
computer goes into the energy saving mode, the 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
17-inch: 37 W
19-inch: 37 W
Active Off
Orange
2W
To “wake” the monitor when it is in Active Off mode, move the mouse or press
any keyboard key.
Access the power management options in the Control Panel to change the
period of time after which the monitor enters these low power states.

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 monitor, contact Gateway Customer Care to identify whether a
repair or replacement is justified based on the number of pixels affected.

■
Read and follow all instructions marked on the product and in the documentation before you operate your system. Retain all safety and
operating instructions for future use.
Do not use this product near water or a heat source such as a radiator.
Set up the system on a stable work surface.
The product should only be operated from the type of power source indicated on the rating label.
If your product has a voltage selector switch, make sure that the switch is in the proper position for your area. The voltage selector switch
is set at the factory to the correct voltage.
Openings in the monitor case are provided for ventilation. Do not block or cover these openings. Make sure you provide adequate space,
at least 6 inches (15 cm), around the system for ventilation when you set up your work area. Never insert objects of any kind into the
monitor ventilation openings.
Some products are equipped with a three-wire power cord to make sure that the product is properly grounded when in use. The plug on
this cord will only fit into a grounding-type outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into an outlet, contact an
electrician to install the appropriate outlet.
If you use an extension cord with this system, make sure that the total ampere rating on the products plugged into the extension cord
does not exceed the extension cord ampere rating.
If your system is fitted with a TV Tuner, cable, or satellite receiver card, make sure that the antenna or cable system is electrically
grounded to provide some protection against voltage surges and buildup of static charges.

Recycling
Mercury Warning Hg
Lamp(s) inside this product contain
mercury and must be recycled or
disposed of according to local, state, or
federal laws.
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-Out Waste 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-saving features 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.
