Compaq FP5315 and FP7317 Flat Panel Monitors - Setting Up Your Monitor

Connecting the Monitor
  1. Place the monitor in a convenient, well-ventilated location near your computer.
  2. Connect the video connector on the real panel of the computer.
  3. Connect one end of the power cable to the back of the monitor, and the other end to an electrical wall outlet.
  4. If your monitor is a multimedia model, connect one end of the audio cable to the back of the monitor, and the other end to the audio connector on the back of the computer.
  5. Adjust the monitor as needed for your comfort using the monitor's tilt adjustment capability.
Installing the Information Files
The CD-ROM included with these monitors contains two information files to be installed on your computer; an .INF and a .ICM file.
  • The .INF file defines monitor resources and provides specifications used by most operating systems to install support software for certain hardware devices. The .INF file ensures monitor compatibility and optimization with your conputer graphics adapter. The .INF files are also downloadable from the Internet.
  • The .ICM files provides color matching consistency from nomitor screen to printer and is activated from within graphics programs that have this feature.
To install these files on your computer, insert the Software and Reference Library CD in your conmputer CD or DVD drive. When the CD menu opens, select Install INF and ICM Files and follow the on-screen instructions.
Tips and recommendations
  • Unplug your monitor from the wall outlet before cleaning. Clean the monitor plastics with a clean cloth dampened with water. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Clean the monitor screen with an antistatic screen cleaner.
  • Do not open your monitor cabinet or try to service this product yourself. Adjust only those controls that are covered in the operating instructions. If your monitor is not operating correctly, 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 or back plate of the monitor.
  • Never disconnect the monitor by pulling the cord.
  • 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 the screen for a prolonged time. To avoid burn-in image damage on your monitor, always start a screen saver or turn off the monitor when it is not in use for a prolonged period.
