This document pertains to HP Notebook PCs with Windows 7.
This document provides important information you should know when attaching monitors, projectors or TVs to your notebook.
Choosing the right location for your monitor
Notice the location of windows in the room when deciding where to place the display. The screen can reflect direct sunlight or bright lights making viewing uncomfortable.
Select a location for the monitor or TV that is near the PC and a power source. Cables can be unsightly and should be hidden from view; such as by routing them behind the back of the desk between a wall.
Set the monitor or TV on a flat level surface. Make sure that the monitor or TV does not rest on any cables.
The height and angle of the monitor or TV should not cause neck or back pain during prolonged viewing. It should be positioned so the eyes of the person using the monitor or TV are at least one meter (three feet) away and only slightly angled down. An adjustable chair can help achieve a comfortable position.
note:Most notebooks are smaller than typical monitors and will need a stand or small platform to raise it to the height and angle described above.
