You finally did it ... popped for a 21 inch high end monitor. But once you got it home and plugged it in, something isn't right. The screen looks funny. The display is skewed at the side. There are waves in the view, and it's not a sharp picture. The manual tells you how to adjust your new monitor but it's confusing, and attempts to adjust your screen only make things worse. Relax, you don't need to take it back you just need Nokia Test.

Nokia Test is a freeware utility by Nokia that will guide you through testing and adjusting any monitor for an optimum display. There are test patterns for Geometry, Convergence, Resolution, Moiré, Brightness, Contrast, Focus, Readability, Color and Screen Regulation. You put up the test pattern and then make the adjustments to your monitor.

There is also an excellent help file that explains all the technical terms and procedures necessary to understand how to correctly set up and adjust your monitor. You might also want to check out DisplayMate Technologies. This company writes the software that all the computer magazines use to test and compare monitors. They also write video diagnostic software for professionals. There is a wealth of information on these pages with everything from what to look for when you buy a new monitor, how to care for it, and how you should adjust it. 

Nokia Test runs under all versions of Windows and can be used on any computer display. There is nothing to install. Simply extract the zip file into a directory of your choice and a Nokia Test directory will be created. You can run the program directly from the directory or make a shortcut to Ntest.exe and run it from where ever you wish.

Nokia Test may not be the newest or the most advanced display diagnostic software available but it is easy to use ... and you can't beat the price!
