Power Cord Set Requirements
The monitor power supply is provided with Automatic Line
Switching (ALS). This feature allows the monitor to operate on
input voltages between 100-120V or 200-240V.
The power cord set (flexible cord or wall plug) received with the
monitor meets the requirements for use in the country where you
purchased the equipment.

If you need to obtain a power cord for a different country, you
should purchase a power cord that is approved for use in that
The power cord must be rated for the product and for the voltage
and current marked on the product's electrical ratings label. The
voltage and current rating of the cord should be greater than the
voltage and current rating marked on the product. In addition, the
cross-sectional area of the wire must be a minimum of 0.75 mm²
or 18AWG, and the length of the cord must be between 6 feet
(1.8 m) and 12 feet (3.6 m). If you have questions about the type
of power cord to use, contact your HP authorized service
A power cord should be routed so that it is not likely to be walked
on or pinched by items placed upon it or against it. Particular
attention should be paid to the plug, electrical outlet, and the
point where the cord exits from the product.

The native resolution of a monitor is the resolution level at which
the LCD panel is designed to perform best. The native resolution
is 1024 x 768 for the 15 inch size. In almost all cases, screen
images look best when viewed at their native resolution. You can
lower the resolution setting of a monitor but not increase it.
The native resolution of an LCD is the actual number of pixels
horizontally in the LCD by the number of pixels vertically in the
LCD. LCD resolution is usually represented by the following
symbols: Input Video 15” LCD
640 x 480 (VGA\S) Transforms input format to
800x600 (SVGA) Transforms input format to
1024x768 (XGA) Displays in Native Resolution

As an example, a SVGA resolution LCD panel has 800 pixels
horizontally by 600 pixels vertically. Input video is also
represented by the same terms. XGA input video has a format of
1024 pixels horizontally by 768 pixels vertically. When the input
pixels contained in the video input format match the native
resolution of the panel, there is a one to one correspondence of
mapping of input video pixels to LCD pixels. As an example, the
pixel in column 45 and row 26 of the input video is in column 45
and row 26 of the LCD. For the case when the input video is at a
lower resolution than the native resolution of the LCD, the direct
correspondence between the video pixels and the LCD pixels is
lost. The LCD controller can compute the correspondence
between video pixels and LCD pixels using algorithms contained
on its controller. The accuracy of the algorithms determines the
fidelity of conversion of video pixels to LCD pixels. Poor fidelity
conversion can result in artifacts in the LCD displayed image
such as varying width characters.
