a screen used to display the output of a computer to the user
- A display, aka monitor, is an appliance that displays video signal of still images and moving pictures produced by a computer or similar device.
- Small-Scale Servers (if computer display is present)
- Examples of computer display technologies are the cathode-ray tube (CRT) and liquid crystal display (LCD).
- a central processing unit with a keyboard, mouse and a visual display (personal computer),
- Desktops are not designed for portability and utilise an external computer display, keyboard, and mouse.
- Integrated Desktop Computer A desktop system in which the computer and computer display function as a single unit which receives its AC power through a single cable.
- Small-Scale Servers and Thin Clients shipped without accessories should be configured with a standard mouse, keyboard and external computer display (if server has display output functionality).
- Computer Display A display screen and its associated electronics encased in a single housing, or within the computer housing (e.g., notebook or integrated desktop computer), that is capable of displaying output information from a computer via one or more inputs, such as a VGA, DVI, Display Port, and/or IEEE 1394.
- Desktop systems shipped without accessories should be configured with a standard mouse, keyboard and external computer display.
- For computers with external computer displays (most desktops): use the computer display power management settings to prevent the display from powering down to ensure it stays on for the full length of the Idle test as described below.
- Integrated desktop computers come in one of two possible forms: (1) a system where the computer display and computer are physically combined into a single unit; or (2) a system packaged as a single system where the computer display is separate but is connected to the main chassis by a DC power cord and both the computer and computer display are powered from a single power supply.
- In addition, all power connections from the power supply to the computer components, with the exception of a DC connection to a computer display in an Integrated Desktop Computer, must be internal to the computer casing (i.e., no external cables running from the power supply to the computer or individual components).
- Notebooks must utilise an integrated computer display and be capable of operation off an integrated battery or other portable power source.
- For computers with integrated computer displays (notebooks and integrated systems): use the power management settings to set the display to power down after one minute.
- Notebook Computer A computer designed specifically for portability and to be operated for extended periods of time either with or without a direct connection to an AC power source. Notebooks must utilise an integrated computer display and be capable of operation off an integrated battery or other portable power source.
