After setting the timing mode, use the OSD (On-screen Display) controls to adjust the screen image. For optimal picture quality, please use the recommended timing mode specific to your display listed on the “Specification” page.
- Setting the resolution: Access “Appearance and Personalization” from Control Panel via the Start Menu, and set the resolution.
- Setting the refresh rate: See your graphic card’s user guide for instructions.
