MICROSOFT WINDOWS NT 4.0 INF AND ICM NOTES:
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 does not currently use 
monitor INF files.  Display Resolutions in 
Windows NT are controlled by the computer's 
graphics adapter.  There is no Monitor selection 
unless the graphics adapter includes this option 
with its own proprietary video drivers 
(which do not ship with Windows NT).
The ICM color profile file can be used within 
Windows NT and is activated from within the 
graphics programs that have this feature.


PLUG AND PLAY COMPATIBILITY: 
HP monitors are Microsoft Windows Plug and Play 
compatible.  HP monitors will work correctly without 
their INF file installed.  With the monitor attached, 
and without the INF file installed, Microsoft Windows 
95, 98, ME, 2000 and XP will recognize your HP monitor 
as a "Plug and Play Monitor." The correct resolutions 
will still be available in the Windows Display control 
panel.  Note that monitor Plug and Play compatibility 
is dependent on several items:
 a) The computer's graphics card must be VESA DDC2 
    compliant.
 b) The graphics card driver must be installed and 
    the card recognized by Microsoft Windows.
 c) The monitor must be connected directly to the 
    graphics card.  Plug and Play does not work 
    through the separate BNC type connectors nor 
    through distribution buffers or boxes.
