Can I view the image on my laptop or computer at the same time it is displayed on my product screen?
Your laptop may support this feature. Try the following.
If you're using a PC notebook:
- On most systems, there's a function key that lets you toggle between the LCD screen and the projector, or display on both at the same time. It may be labeled CRT/LCD or have an icon such as . You may have to hold down the Fn key while pressing it. Allow a few seconds for the projector to sync up after changing the setting.
- If the function key doesn't permit you to display simultaneously on both screens, you should check your monitor settings to make sure both the LCD screen and the external monitor port are enabled. From the Control Panel, open the Display utility, select the Settings option, then select the Advanced option (in Windows Vista, right-click on the desktop, select Personalize, select Display Settings, then select Advanced Settings). The method for adjusting the settings varies by brand; you may need to click a Monitor tab, then make sure the external Monitor port is set as your primary display and/or enabled. See your computer's documentation or online help for details.
- Make sure the projector is connected to your Macintosh.
- Select System Preferences from the Apple menu and click Displays.
- Click Detect Displays.
- Do one of the following: Mac OS X 10.6.x users: Click Show displays in menu bar.
Other Mac OS X users: Make sure the VGA Display or Color LCD dialog box is selected, click the Arrangement or Arrange tab, then make sure the Mirror Displays checkbox is selected.
