  caution:
The screen is fragile. Avoid touching or applying pressure to the LCD screen, doing so can cause damage.

  2. Slide the pedestal into the slot on the base until the pedestal clicks into the base.

Connecting the monitor cables
  caution:
Before connecting cables to the monitor, ensure that the computer and monitor are powered off.

Connecting the VGA Video Cable
Connect one end of the DVI-D video cable to the back of the monitor and the other end to the DVI-D video connector on the computer. End-user can use this cable only if the computer has a DVI compliant graphics card that is either integrated or installed. The DVI-D cable is included.

Getting HDMI Sound
If end-user uses the HDMI to connect to a monitor model without speakers, end-user must activate HDMI sound by adjusting the setting in Microsoft Windows. If HDMI is not activated, end-user can not hear any sound. To activate HDMI sound on your computer:
  1. Right-click on the volume icon in the Windows system tray.
  2. Click Playback Devices. The sound window opens
  3. On the Playback tab, click the HDMI output audio device that is listed.
  4. Click Set Default.
  5. Click Apply.
  6. Click OK to close the window
Connecting the power cord
  1. Follow all electrical and power warnings
      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 (earthed) electrical outlet.
    • Be sure that the grounded power outlet that the end-user plugs the power cord into is easily accessible to the operator and located as close to the equipment as possible. A power cord should be routed so that it is not likely to be walked on or pinched by items that are placed on it or against it.
    • Do not place anything on power cords or cables. Arrange them so that no one might accidentally step on or trip over them. Do not pull on a cord or cable.
  2. Connect the round end of the power supply cord to the monitor, and then connect one end of the power cord to the power supply and the other end to a grounded electrical outlet.
      warning:
    To prevent injury from electrical shock, the end-user should do one of the following if a properly grounded electrical outlet is not available:
    1. End-user should use an electrical outlet adapter that provides proper grounding.
    2. End-user should have a properly grounded electrical outlet installed.

Installing the Cable Management Clip
Install the cable management clip over the input cable and power cord to gather them together behind the monitor.

Adjusting The Tilt
For optimal viewing, adjust the screen tilt to your own preference, as follows:
  caution:
To avoid breakage or other damage, avoid applying pressure to the LCD screen while changing the tilt.
  1. Face the front of the monitor and hold the base so that the end-user does not topple the monitor while changing the tilt.
  2. Adjust the tilt by moving the top edge of the monitor either toward or away, without touching the screen.
