Connecting a Laptop to Your Classroom Projector

 If you prefer to use a Laptop Computer rather than the Classroom PC, you may connect one to the system for display on the projection screen. Auxiliary jacks are located on the Control Panel to attach your VGA cable and mini stereo audio cable (for sound, if needed).

After attaching the cables from your laptop to the auxiliary jacks, select ”Laptop Computer“ as the source, and your Laptop should be displayed on the projection screen.

To Connect Your Laptop…

Currently, all classroom systems only accept analog VGA signals (no digital signals). Connect the VGA cable from the Laptop to the VGA port on the Control Panel:

If sound from the Laptop is necessary, connect the mini stereo sound cable from the Laptop to the jack on the Control Panel:

Now that the Laptop is connected, turn on the Projector and select “Laptop” as the source.

If you still have problems, please call our office at ext. 5030 from your classroom phone so we can assist you and get you up and running quickly. And always remember to log-off the PC and turn off the projector at the end of your class.

Anything media/technology related – projectors, flatscreens, video cameras, etc, but NOT computers (we have no computer support function). Several samples on our current webpage.
