Step 1: Attaching the base

Use the following instructions to attach the base to the monitor:
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.
  2. Align the monitor neck with the base.
  3. Secure the base to the monitor with the locking screw, making sure that the base is securely attached.

  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°.

Step 2: Connecting the monitor to the computer

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. 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.

    2. DVI (24-pin)
    • For analog operation, use the VGA cable. Connect one end of the 15-pin VGA signal cable to the VGA connector on the back of the monitor, and connect the other end to the computer VGA port.
    • For digital operation, use the DVI-D 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.
  5. Connect one end of the USB cable to the USB connector on the display, and the other end of the USB cable to the computer.
    The USB cable is required for touch screen operation.
  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 Menu button on the front of the monitor until the Other menu displays.
  2. Select Input, and use the Left or Right arrow buttons on the monitor to choose Analog (D-sub) or Digital (DVI-D).
  3. When finished, press 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 the Touch Driver (for Windows XP only)

The touch driver is needed only for systems that use the Microsoft Windows XP operating system. You do not need to install the touch driver if your system has Windows Vista or Windows 7.

  1. Insert the CD in the computer CD-ROM drive.
    The CD menu displays.
  2. Click Install Touch Driver for Microsoft Windows XP from the CD menu.
    The Touch Driver Setup Wizard displays.
    Touch drivers are not required for systems running Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7 operating systems.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions in the wizard to install the driver.

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.

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.
