Video input select

Use the Input Select button to choose between two different video signals that may be connected to your monitor.

If both VGA and DVI cables are connected to one PC, the monitor displays an image automatically as long as a video
signal is present in either the VGA or DVI outputs. When connecting one display to two PCs, if using screen savers,
best to set both to the exact times. Whichever mouse is moved first will activate that video input first.

sense a video signal. Using the input select button, select the desired input to be tested either Analog Input
or Digital Input. Disconnect the video cable from the video card and the Dell Self-test Feature Check dialogue
box will appear if the display is operating correctly.
