1.2 Installing the Diamond Fire GL1 Graphics Accelerator
-------------------------------------------------------
 
  Your computer is shipped with the first/primary Diamond Fire GL1
  Graphics Accelerator and its drivers factory-installed. 
  Refer to the following directions and information only if you plan to
  install additional Fire GL1 cards, for example, for a multi-monitor
  configuration. 

  Refer to the User's Guide of your computer to install the Diamond
  Fire GL1 Graphics Accelerator in your system. 
  NOTE: If you want to install the Fire GL1 card to replace your
  existing graphics solution it may be helpful to set your display driver
  to standard VGA before you shut down your PC and remove a previously
  installed card.
         
  If you plan to set up a multi-monitor system: 
  With the drivers provided you can operate a maximum of four Fire GL1
  Graphics Accelerators. The drivers are designed exclusively to
  support Fire GL1 Graphics Accelerators with the Windows NT 4.0
  operating system. The drivers DO NOT SUPPORT any other type or brand of
  graphics card or operating system.
           
  NOTE: If they are not factory-installed you must install the primary
  display adapter and the drivers first, before installing a second,
  third, etc graphics card.

         

2. INSTALLING THE DIAMOND Fire GL1 VIDEO DRIVER
----------------------------------------------

  Your computer system shipped with the graphics software drivers for the
  Fire GL1 card pre-installed. 

  You need the information in this section on re-installation of the basic
  driver software for Windows NT only if you are re-installing the
  operating system.

  For your convenience the following procedures describe how to install
  the graphics driver software.

  The Unattended Video Driver Installation as described in 2.2 allows to
  install (uninstall - see 4.2) the drivers and configure your monitor
  settings by command line editing. You can also set parameters for a
  'silent' installation (no messages displayed during the installation). 

  NOTE: Before installing the Diamond Fire GL1 video driver, please
        close all open application programs and disable any anti-virus
        software that is running on your computer until the driver
        installation is complete!


2.1 Menu-controlled Video Driver Installation
-------------------------------------------------

  1. Click the 'Start' button in the task bar, click 'Run' and then
     select 'Install.exe' from the \DIAMOND\INSTALL subdirectory of your
     IBM INSTALLATION CD.  The 'Diamond  Install' dialog appears.
 
     NOTES:

     You can find  the factory-installed 'Diamond Install' dialog on your
     hard drive via Start > Programs > Diamond. 
     Then click 'DIAMOND Install/Uninstall Utility.'

     The Diamond installation dialog displays in English if the
     language of your operationg system is not supported.


  2. Enter the path to which you want to install the driver software
     and click 'Next.'

  3. When the 'INSTALLATION COMPLETE' message appears click 'Next' again. 
     This will restart your computer.

  4. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display > Settings, or
     right-click on the Windows desktop, and select 'Properties' and
     'Settings'. Set the resolution, color depth, and refresh rate that
     best suit your requirements and your monitor's performance.

  5. Click OK.


  NOTES:

  If you have added Fire GL1 cards to your system for a multi-monitor
  configuration you do not need to install the software drivers again
  for each card. Go to MultiScreen (see 3.3) in the 'Display
  Properties' menu to enable and set up your multi-monitor configuration.
  
  You can select the refresh rates individually for each monitor
  in the Monitor dialog - see 3.2. However, you can set the refresh rate 
  for the monitor on your first/primary display adapter only 
  in the 'Settings' dialog.


2.2 Unattended Video Driver Installation
------------------------------------
  If you prefer to configure your system by command line editing you may
  install the video drivers and set the monitor configuration of your
  primary display as follows:

  1. Insert your IBM INSTALLATION CD into your CD-ROM drive.

  2. Click the 'Start' button in the task bar, click 'Run' and then enter
     or browse to the subdirectory \DIAMOND\INSTALL\

  3. Enter the following command:

     INSTALL -0[x] -1[y] -2[z] -s[e] -r

    These are the command line options:

    -0[x] Resolution (horizontal)

    -1[y] Color Depth (in bit)

    -2[z] Refresh rate (in Hz)
                                
    -s[e] Silent Installation - no installation messages displayed during
                                installation
                                [e] no error messages displayed

    -r   Restart system after installation
         Note: If you do not set the commmand line option -r, the system
         does not restart after the installation is complete.
  

    Valid Resolution/Color/Refresh combinations for the command line option are
                                         
                                   [y] -Color                     
     Resolution  [x] -Resolution      Depth (bpp)    [z] -Refresh Rates (Hz)
     ----------  ---------------   --------------    -----------------------
     640x480      640                   32           60, 72, 75, 85, DDC
     800x600      800                   32           60, 72, 75, 85, DDC
     1024x768     1024                  32           60, 70, 75, 85, DDC
     1280x1024    1280                  32           60, 75, 85, DDC
     1600x1200    1600                  32           60, 65, 70, 75, 85, DDC
     1792x1344    1792                  32           60, DDC
     1920x1200    1920                  32           60, 75, DDC
     

     NOTES:
      1)  For the DDC parameter, the highest possible refresh rate for the
          monitor is used if a PnP/DDC monitor is connected and detected. 
          Otherwise,60 Hz will be used if no PnP/DDC monitor is connected or 
          none is detected.

      2)  If a specific refresh rate is used for the [z] parameter, the
          refresh rate chosen will override any refresh rates decoded from
          a DDC monitor.

      3)  If an invalid entry is made for any of the above parameters, the
          operating system will boot up at 640x480x32bpp the first time after
          the driver is installed.  The driver will also attempt to detect a
          DDC monitor.  See note 1 above.

   
 
  Example: For a silent installation of the Fire GL1 video drivers,
  configuring your monitor for 1280x1024 at 75 Hz, TrueColor, and restart
  the system after installation, the command looks like this:

   INSTALL -01280 -132 -275 -se -r

  Warning!
  Selecting a resolution or refresh rate that your monitor does not
  support can permanently damage the monitor.
  Check the documentation of your monitor and make sure that the
  monitor supports the selected resolution and refresh rate.


  Note: To enable and set up a multi-monitor configuration use the
        MultiScreen dialog as described in 3.3

  A. Click the tab for the card where the monitor you want to adjust 
     is attached to.
     NOTE: You can adjust 'Monitor Tuning' and 'Gamma Correction' only for
     those monitors that are currently assigned to your working desktop. 
     For example, you cannot adjust your second monitor's display while your
     desktop is set for single monitor operation.


  
  B. Monitor Tuning

     With the buttons in the 'Move' and 'Size' sections you can tune the
     position and size of the monitor's display for the indicated resolution
     and refresh rate.
     NOTE: Use the hardware setting controls on your monitor, if available,
     to adjust your display size or position - instead of the software
     controls in 'Adjustment - Monitor Tuning.'  Check the documentation of
     your monitor for information on your monitor's hardware controls.
     NOTE: Resizing the display slightly changes the actual refresh rate.
     If you operate a fixed-frequency monitor check the documentation of your
     monitor for information on refresh rate tolerances. 
     
     Sync Polarity: If you do not get a satisfactory display with the default
     sync polarity setting for the current resolution, you may try and change
     the settings.

     Undo: Click this button to undo the last change you made (i.e. when you
     clicked 'Apply').
     
     Default: Click this button to set the 'Monitor Tuning' to the
     manufacturer's default settings.  
     
    
     NOTES:

     Press the ESC key on your keyboard to undo the changes if your monitor
     has lost synchronization.
     
     If you change the resolution (in 'Settings') and/or the refresh
     rate (in 'Monitor'), you may need to re-adjust the monitor's display.
     
       
       
  C. 'Gamma Correction': Adjust the montior's gamma correction for optimal
     brightness with the red, green and blue slider bars.
     NOTE: You cannot adjust 'Gamma Correction' for 256-color modes.

     When these sliders are changed the gamma correction table modifies each
     pixel's color value. The brightness produced at the face of the display
     is proportional to the input voltage raised to the power gamma. This
     nonlinearity must be compensated to achieve correct reproduction of the
     image's brightness. The effect of display gamma is to darken the 
     midtones relative to the dark and light regions. The gamma correction
     adjustment affects the entire screen display. The possible setting
     range is 0.3 - 4.0. The default setting is 1.0.

     With 'Link sliders' selected, the three sliders move together as
     you drag any individual slider. With the check box unchecked, you can 
     adjust colors individually by dragging the applicable slider.
     Click the '>1<' button - for each color - to set the gamma correction
     to the default value of 1.0.
      
 
 
  D. Click the 'Apply' or 'OK' button to enable your adjustment settings.


  E. Repeat steps A through D for each monitor you want to set up.



        
3.4  Setting Multiple Monitor Configuration
-------------------------------------------

   Select the 'MultiScreen' dialog in the 'Display Properties' window.
   You can find more information on setting up your MultiScreen
   configuration in the context online help.    

  A. Select your monitor combination in the 'Define Desktop' drop-down
     list. Click the 'Apply' or 'OK' button to enable your multi-monitor
     setting.

    Notes:
    Click on a monitor icon in the 'MultiScreen' dialog
    to identify the corresponding monitor. Example: If you click
    on the monitor icon '2' in the 'MultiScreen' dialog, your second
    monitor will display a '2.'
    With drag-and-drop you can swap the logical positions of your 
    monitors in respect to the graphics accelerator card(s) without 
    physically reconnecting the monitors.


  B. Select the 'Window Placement' Settings
     
     Fullscreen
     Select if you want a full screen window displayed 'On all' monitors,
     or only on the 'Current monitor' - that is the monitor where your
     mouse cursor currently is.
     
     Windows
     Select how you want to display sizeable windows that normally
     appear in the center of the screen:
     'Unchanged', or 
     'Move'd fully to that monitor where the top left corner of the
     window is.

     Reports
     Select a monitor where you want to display Windows messages that
     normally display in the center of the screen. This keeps the screen 
     area of the other monitor(s) free for your work.
     You may alternatively opt for displaying the reports 'Unchanged.'


  C. Click the 'Apply' or 'OK' button to enable your MultiScreen settings.

     according to your requirements:

     Overlay Planes

     4-Bit double-buffered
     Use 4 bit double-buffered overlay planes in the depth buffers. The
     driver exports pixelformats with 4-bit double-buffered overlay
     planes for OpenGL applications.

     8-Bit single-buffered
     Use 8 bits of each 32-bit frame buffer pixel as single-buffered
     overlay planes.


     Force copy swap
     Force blit copy from back to front buffer. 

     
     Wait for vertical retrace
     Buffer swap 'synched' to vertical retrace. This improves the
     picture quality but reduces the view performance in, for example,
     benchmark testing.
 
      

  4. Click the 'Apply' or 'OK' button to enable your Configuration
     settings.

8.  SUPPORTED RESOLUTIONS, COLOR DEPTHS, AND REFRESH RATES
----------------------------------------------------------

  The resolutions and refresh rates supported by the Fire GL1 are
  dependent on the monitor that is selected.  To display the resolution
  that are supported and the maximum vertical refresh rate for each of your
  monitors, refer to the 'Monitor' dialog in the 'Display Properties' 
  window. You can display the 'Monitor' dialog by right-clicking 
  the Windows desktop and selecting 'Properties' and then
  selecting the 'Monitor' tab.
