Connecting the monitor
Warning
Because lifting your monitor off the desktop surface takes weight off
from the adjustable 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.

Using Your Gateway Flat Panel Monitor
Connecting USB cables
Your monitor has a built-in, four-port USB 2.0 hub that lets you conveniently connect
USB devices. Because your computer case may be under your desk or inside a cabinet, these
monitor-mounted USB ports can be much easier to access.
To use the monitor’s USB ports, you must first connect the monitor to a USB port on your
computer. Because the USB hub uses power from the monitor, it does not require its own
power connection.
To connect USB cables:
1
Connect the included USB cable to the USB in (“B” type) port on the back of your
monitor, then connect the other end of the cable to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.

Adjusting monitor height tension
The stand is factory adjusted to maintain the adjusted height for your monitor. However,
you can further adjust the tension.
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.
Increase lifting tension
(clockwise)
Decrease lifting tension
(counter-clockwise)
10
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.
www.gateway.com
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 display are based upon the following guildelines. These guidelines are based on
available scientific literature and published standards.
Screen height
The recommended screen height for displays (except in special circumstances, such as for
bifocal use) is that the top of the display 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 displays. If the display 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 display 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).

eliminate the PIP distortion. For more information, see your Y Pb Pr device’s user guide.
Windows controls
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.

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
75 W
Active Off
Orange
≤2W
To “wake” the monitor when it is in Active Off mode, you can:
■
Move the mouse.
■
Press any keyboard key.
■
Press the Input button on the side of the monitor to select a different video source.
To change the period of time the monitor waits before entering these low power states,
access the power management options in the Windows Control Panel.

Environmental information
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
