Be sure that you connect the VGA cable for the LCD screen to your video card or motherboard. You may need a VGA to DVI converter, like I did, to connect the cable to your video card. When you first power on the case, the LCD screen shows the BIOS and POST screens, but the touch screen feature doesn't work. Once you get into your operating system, the screen will go black until you install the included software. Pop in the disc to your optical drive and follow the on-screen instructions to correctly install the software. You'll also have to setup the remote control with the infrared so that the case will read the request when a button is pushed on the remote.
Upon reboot, you'll have to go into your monitor properties and configure the LCD screen. You have to set the 7" LCD screen as an extension to your desktop (essentially running two monitors as one). The 7" touch screen and the remote control now work. The LCD screen has extremely accurate colors and looks amazing. The recommended screen resolution is 800 x 600 but you can run up to 1024 x 768 which is what I'm going to run it at. The LCD screen is very colorful, bright, and almost reminds me of the T.V. screen on an airplane in the back of the seat in front of yours except more clear.
The LCD screen is now fully functional, so let's go ahead and check out the specifications and features of this unit before we test it.
