1.0  Introduction

	PROVIEW'S Plug & Play monitors are designed to work with Windows'95/98
	operating system. PROVIEW monitors comply with VESA DDC (Display  
	Data Channel) Standards and are Plug & Play compatible. With the use
	of a DDC compatible video card, the EDID (Extended Display Identification) 
	can be read from the PROVIEW Monitor by Plug & Play compatible software,
        such as Windows '95/98.  In order for Windows '95/98 to detect the new
        monitor, you must ensure that the following minimum requirements are met:
	(1).A DDC compatible video card is installed.If your video card is not 
	    DDC compatible,then autodetection will not work.	    

	(2).DDC detection is enabled in Windows '95/98.This should be the case
	    if you installed a DDC compatible video card.The *.INF file supplied	     
	    with the video card should enable DDC in Windows '95/98.If this is not
	    the case, then autodetection will fail.	    

	(3).A DDC compatible monitor with its *.INF file installed into Windows '95/98.
