Clone Screen (for video)
When you plug in the VGA cable, most likely
your laptop will detect the projector and
send an identical image of your screen out
the VGA port to the projector.
However it’s possible the projector will not
be detected and you will have to ‘activate’
your VGA output by setting your laptop to
“dual clone display” or “duplicate display” or
“Mirror display”
In most laptops this is done by pressing the
FN key (bottom left) in combination with F4,
F7 or F8. Look for these symbols:
fn
Typically, the “fn” makes your regular keys
perform an alternate function. The “IOI”
symbol is the industry standard for ‘display ’
Squished Image? The image on your laptop may looked stretched
or squished as it has adjusted itself to the projector resolution
(which is either 1024x768 or 1280x800)
*** Mirror Display Fails on TSJr?
Try setting your screen resolution to
or
(projector VGA resolution)
1024 x 768
1280 x 800

Dynamic IP (’Automatic’)

Most operating systems make your IP ‘dynamic’ by default - which is what the
TS (Teaching Station) needs. However if you regularly connect your laptop to a
network with a cable, it may have been set to ‘Static IP’ for that network.
