               1500FP.INF     Information file used by Windows 95 and
                              Windows 98 to determine the correct timing

               1500FP.ICM     Color mapping file used by Windows 98 to
                              display the correct colors.

STEP 1         Setup the Flat Panel Monitor with the operating system:

               WINDOWS 98 -   In most cases, Windows 98 will auto-detect
                              the new monitor and automatically setup
                              the correct parameters.

                              To manually install or update the driver,
                              click on START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL,
                              DISPLAY, SETTINGS tab, ADVANCED, MONITOR
                              tab, CHANGE. This will start the "Update
                              Device Driver Wizard".  Follow the prompts
                              to install the driver.

                WINDOWS 95 -  Click on START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL,

                              the Dell 1500FP.

                WINDOWS NT4 - Windows NT does not auto-detect "Plug and Play"
                              Monitors and does not use the monitor *.INF
                              file. Therefore no monitor driver installation
                              is required.

STEP 2          Set the display resolution to 1024x768 pixels with maximum

                98, & NT4     press ENTER (or Click OK).  Follow the prompts
                              to install the software.
