CBA 5.304 Mod Lab West
To reserve this lab please visit Lab Reservations.
Connect a VGA cable to the desk's VGA port (located next to the VHS deck along with the other auxiliary inputs), and to the VGA port of your laptop computer. When a laptop is plugged into the desk the LCD projector will automatically switch to that input and disable the projection of the desk's computer. If your laptop's screen appears on the room's screen you are ready to go, if not, you may need to mirror your laptop's screen onto the projector. To do this on a Dell computer, hit the FN and F8 keys at the same time until you see your laptop content on the screen. Hitting FN-F8 successively will scroll through the available viewing choices. The command to mirror your laptop's screen may be different on other manufacturer's computers, if you have any questions please consult this Laptop Activation Chart. The desk also has Computer audio and Ethernet ports (PC Audio and Ethernet cables are available for checkout from Media Support), as well as one AC outlets.
3M Ideaboard IB3000 Instructions
The electronic whiteboard allows you to accurately save and share meeting ideas. As fast as your team can generate ideas, the 3M Ideaboard IB3000 captures them for everyone to see. Ideas jotted on the board are automatically to the desk's PC.
To begin, first make sure that the 3M Ideaboard is connected to the desk's PC (via serial cable) and that it is powered on.
The illustration on the right displays the necessary 3M dry-erase markers and eraser next to the Ideakeys on the whiteboard. Only these 3M markers and eraser will be digitally recognized by both the Ideaboard and computer.
