INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR APPLE MULTIPLE SCAN DISPLAY SOFTWARE
-------------------------------------------------------------------

This document contains some important reminders and some information that is not in the user¹s guide.   
     € To print this file, choose Print from the File menu.
     € To leave this file, choose Quit from the File menu.


WHAT THIS SOFTWARE DOES
As described in the user¹s guide, you can use the software on this disk to change the resolution of your monitor, adjust the number of colors it can display, and control your monitor¹s energy-saving features.

For more information about these and other features of your display, see your user¹s guide.


SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Though your monitor works with both Macintosh computers and PC-compatible computers, the software on this disk works only with Macintosh computers. You must have system software version 7.1 or later to use this Macintosh software.


INSTALLING YOUR MULTIPLE SCAN DISPLAY SOFTWARE
Follow the instructions in the user¹s guide to install this software on this disk. If you upgrade your system software, you must reinstall the Multiple Scan Display software. 

It is not necessary to install the contents of this disk on your Power Macintosh, PowerBook 500, or PowerBook Duo 280.  These Macintoshes were shipped with the required software, and thus the installer does not support them.

TROUBLESHOOTING
This section lists some potential problems and solutions.

€	AFTER CHANGING SCREEN RESOLUTION IN THE MONITORS CONTROL PANEL, I CAN¹T MOVE A WINDOW, OR IT IS HALFWAY OFF THE SCREEN OR ALTOGETHER MISSING. Try one of the following:
     - Close the Monitors control panel before using any other window.
     - Quit the program you¹re running and then open it again.
     - Use the Monitors control panel to revert to the resolution you were using before making the change.
     - If you have problems with one particular program, contact the publisher of that program. Not all programs can take advantage of the Multiple Scan Display¹s new features.

€	THE COLORS DON¹T LOOK RIGHT AFTER I CHANGE THE NUMBER OF COLORS IN THE MONITORS CONTROL PANEL. Try one of the following:
     - Quit the program you¹re running and start it again.
     - Use the Monitors control panel to revert to the number of colors you were using before making the change.

€	THE ICONS ON MY DESKTOP MOVE AFTER I CHANGE SCREEN RESOLUTION IN THE MONITORS CONTROL PANEL. Because changing resolutions affects how much you can fit on your screen, the display software automatically repositions the icons after you change the screen resolution. In most cases, it repositions them as you would expect. You can use the mouse to move the icons where you like. 

€  I CHANGED THE KIND OF MONITOR ATTACHED TO MY COMPUTER, AND THE NEW MONITOR IS BLANK OR SHOWS "GARBAGE" OR "SNOW." Try one of the following:
     - Turn off the computer and detach the new monitor. Start the computer with no monitor attached. Turn off the computer again and reattach the new monitor.

€  I CAN¹T SEE SOME OF THE WINDOWS IN MY PROGRAMS AFTER CHANGING THE SCREEN RESOLUTION IN THE MONITORS CONTROL PANEL. Try one of the following:
			- If your program has a Windows menu, use the commands in the menu to "hide" each invisible window and then to show it again, using the commands in the Windows menu.
     - Use the Monitors control panel to revert to the resolution you were using before making the change.
		- Quit and reopen the application that has the missing window.

€	AFTER USING THE ENERGY SAVER CONTROL PANEL TO TURN ON THE ENERGY-SAVING FEATURES, ONE OR MORE OF MY MONITORS DO NOT DIM. Not all monitors and video cards support this feature. See the user¹s guide for more information.

€  WHEN I TRY TO USE BOTH ENERGY SAVER AND A SCREEN SAVER PROGRAM, THE SCREEN FREEZES.  Turn off either the screen saver program or the Energy Saver control panel.

IMPORTANT: Some programs and video cards do not yet take advantage of the Multiple Scan Display¹s new features.  If you experience problems with your application programs or video cards, contact the publisher or manufacturer.
