Well, this may sound stupid and low-tech, but what I did last time
was to Google the monitor make and model.  I got the online manual
for the monitor from that.

When a religion is good, I conceive it will support itself; and when
it does not support itself, and God does not take care to support it
so that its professors are obliged to call for help of the civil
power, 'tis a sign, I apprehend, of its being a bad one.
