How to Install a Viewsonic Monitor
Installing a ViewSonic monitor can enhance the multimedia experience of a computer owner. These monitors are easy and quick to install. Regardless of whether your ViewSonic monitor is 15 or 30 inches, installation only takes a few minutes.
Determine which video data connection type you want to use: D-sub, DVI or HDMI.
Connect the appropriate data cable type to the back of the monitor. Only one end of the data cable will fit into the monitor output connector.
Connect the other end of the data cable to your computer's graphics output connector. If there is more than one video output on your graphics solution, use the top left-most connector.
Connect your ViewSonic's electrical cord to the back of the monitor. This connector is also keyed and only fits one end of the power cable.
Plug in the alternate end of the ViewSonic's electrical cable to an appropriately rated electrical outlet--preferably an outlet in a surge protector to protect your monitor from power surges.
Power on your PC and monitor to ensure that the connections are in fact secure and the monitor is working correctly.
Tips & Warnings
- Install your computer monitor on a separate outlet from the computer itself, as monitors use a lot of electrical power.
- Do not plug in your monitor's electrical cable first, as it is unwise to plug in electrified components to your PC.
