Adjusting Monitor Settings

The computer might ask you if it can adjust the settings of your monitor. If it does, you’ll have only an “OK” box to select (Figure 146). Then, another screen will test whether or not the screen is readable with the new settings (Figure 147). If the screen isn’t readable, don’t worry. The settings should revert to the previous settings. We discuss the importance of having the correct monitor identified and how to install video drivers later.


Figure 146: When “OK” is your only choice...hit OK

 



Figure 147: Adjusting display settings

After adjusting your display settings, you’re asked to hit OK to confirm that you can read the display. If the display is unreadable, the settings should revert.
