Computer Projection

Generic:

  • VGA cable is connected firmly to correct port (blue color, typically)
  • System has powered ON
  • Projector is ON

PC

  • Dell laptops: Press the Function (Fn) key and the F8 key together (Fn+F8), then wait a few seconds
    • This toggles the display mode so the laptop is using its LCD, as well as the VGA connection
  • Other PC laptops may have a similar keyboard combination, usually indicated by the symbolic representation of a computer screen
  • If your laptop's LCD is showing your Desktop, but the LCD is only projecting your desktop background:
    • Right-click on a blank spot on the Desktop:
    • Vista: select "Personalize"
    • XP: select "Display Properties"
