- Connect the VGA cable (attached to Notebook Access Panel) to the VGA port of your computer. Turn on the computer, press the Projector On button on the Notebook Access Panel (If the Projector ON button begins blinking it is indicating that the projector is warming up), and press the Computer button. If you have audio in your presentation you will also need to connect a PC audio cable (PC Audio and Ethernet cables are available for checkout from Media Support.)
- Turn on your 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 PDF chart.
