This guide tells you how to install the Silicon Graphics 1600SW flat panel monitor adapter board in the O2 workstation. There are two classes of O2 workstations, the R5000, and the R10000. The 1600SW flat panel monitor adapter can be installed in either class of O2 workstation.
The guide is organized as follows:
Chapter 1 describes how to install the adapter board in your O2 workstation.
Chapter 2 describes how to adjust the flat panel timing tables and how to calibrate color for the 1600SW flat panel monitor.
Chapter 3 provides troubleshooting information, technical specifications, and regulatory statements.
The glossary defines many of the terms used in the manual.
The 1600SW flat panel monitor adapter board is installed in the digital display adapter socket on your O2 workstation's system board. This is the same socket that is used for the Presenter 1280 flat panel display.

The Silicon Graphics 1600SW flat panel monitor can be used with any O2 workstation running IRIX 6.5.2 and later. Systems running IRIX 6.5 and 6.5.1 must be upgraded to IRIX 6.5.2. Upgrades and patches are provided on the CD-ROMs included with the adapter board kit.
The 1600SW flat panel monitor ships with additional documentation, the Silicon Graphics 1600SW Flat Panel Monitor Owner's Guide. This guide describes how to use features of the flat panel monitor and provides technical specifications for the device.
The O2 Workstation Hardware Reference Guide is located on your O2 workstation's hard disk in the IRIS InSight library (unless it has been removed). In this case, you can reinstall it from the IRIX CDs that shipped with your O2 workstation. Locate the online book on your O2 workstation as follows. From the Toolchest on your desktop, choose Help > Online Books > SGI End User > O2 Workstation Hardware Reference Guide.
The O2 Workstation Hardware Reference Guide is also available in the Silicon Graphics Technical Publications Library. See the next section, “Technical Publications Library.”
