Step 1: Attaching the base
Use the following instructions to attach the base to the monitor:
  caution:
The screen is fragile. Avoid touching or applying pressure to the LCD screen; doing so can cause damage.
  1. Place the monitor screen down on a flat, soft, protected surface with the support column hanging over the edge.
  2. Align the column with the monitor support column and push forward until the column locks in place. Then align the stand with the column and push the stand towards the bottom of the monitor.

  3. Lift the monitor to an upright position and place on a flat, stable surface.
  4. To adjust the monitor, face the front of the monitor and hold the base with one hand.
  5. Adjust the tilt by moving the monitor top edge toward or away from you, without touching the screen. You can adjust the display's viewing angle from -5° to 20°.

Mounting the monitor on the wall
  1. Check the stability of the wall-mounting fixture.
      warning:
    To reduce the risk of personal injury or of damage to the equipment, check that the wall-mounting fixture is adequately installed and secured before attaching the monitor. Refer to the instructions supplied with the wall-mounting fixture and check that it is capable of supporting the monitor.
  2. Disconnect the power cable and any other cables from the monitor.
  3. Place the monitor face down on a flat, protected surface.
  4. Press the release button on the monitor base toward the center, and then remove the base.

  7. Attach a swing arm or other mounting fixture following the instructions included with the mounting fixture to ensure that the monitor is safely attached.
Step 2: Connecting the monitor to the computer
  warning:
To reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to your equipment:
  • Do not disable the power cord grounding plug. The grounding plug is an important safety feature. Plug the power cord into a grounded electrical outlet.
  • Be sure the grounded power outlet you plug the power cord into is easily accessible to the operator and located as close to the equipment as possible. Route the power code to prevent objects being placed on it or someone walking on it.
  • Do not place anything on power cords or cables. Arrange them so that no one accidentally steps on or trips over them. Do not pull on a cord or cable.
  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. To attach a VGA cable, connect one end of the 15-pin D-Sub VGA cable to the back of the monitor and connect the other end to the computer VGA port.

  3. To attach a DVI cable, connect one end of the 24-pin DVI cable to the back of the monitor and connect the other end to the computer DVI port.
      note:
    You can use this cable only if your computer has a DVI compliant graphics card installed.

  4. Connect one end of the audio cable to the built-in monitor speakers and the other end to the Audio Out connector (S1931a, S2031a, S2321a, and S2331a only).

    Connecting the speakers
      note:
    When using a VGA or DVI signal, you must connect your audio separately because a VGA or DVI signal converts only video data, not audio data.
  5. Connect one end of the power cord into the AC power connector on the back of the display, and the other end to an electrical outlet.

  6. Turn on your monitor and computer.
Step 3: Selecting the video input source
You can attach a VGA cable or a DVI-D cable, or both to the monitor. To use DVI, your computer must have a DVI-compliant graphics card. To change the input selection, use the Input option in the OSD menu.
  1. Press the OK/AUTO button on the front of the monitor for five seconds until the Input Source menu displays.
  2. Use the Plus or Minus buttons on the monitor to choose Auto, VGA, or DVI.
  3. When finished, press OK/AUTO to exit from the OSD screen.
Step 4: Installing drivers
Install the monitor-driver INF and ICM files from the CD, or download them from the Internet as follows:
Installing drivers from the CD
To install the monitor driver from the CD:
  1. Insert the CD in your computer CD drive.
    The CD menu appears.
  2. Select the language.
  3. Click Install Monitor Driver Software.
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions.
  5. Restart the computer.
  6. Check that the proper resolutions and refresh rates appear in the Display Properties window in the Control Panel.

  1. Select your country/region.
  2. Select Download Drivers and Software.
  3. Enter the model number of your monitor: S2031a.
    The software downloads information for your monitor.
  4. Ensure your system meets the requirements given.
  5. Download and install the driver and software files by following the steps on the screen.
Tips and recommendations
  • Unplug your monitor from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning. If the screen requires additional cleaning, use an antistatic screen cleaner.
  • Do not open your monitor or attempt to service this product yourself. Adjust only those controls that are covered in the operating instructions. If your monitor is not operating properly, or has been dropped or damaged, contact your HP authorized dealer, reseller, or service provider.
  • Use only a power source and connection appropriate for this monitor, as indicated on the label/back plate of the monitor.
  • Never disconnect the monitor by pulling the cord. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet by grasping the plug firmly.
  • Turn your monitor off when not in use. You can substantially increase the life expectancy of your monitor by using a screen saver program and turning off the monitor when not in use.
  • When removing the monitor base, place the monitor face down on a soft flat area to prevent it from getting scratched, defaced, or broken.
  • Burn-in image damage might occur on monitors that display the same static image on screen for a prolonged period of time. To avoid burn-in image damage on your monitor screen, always activate a screen saver application or turn off the monitor when it is not in use for a prolonged period of time.
