Connecting a computer
Connect the projector to a computer with a VGA cable.
Many laptops do not turn on their external video ports when connected to a projector. Usually a key

labeled CRT/LCD or a function key with a monitor symbol on the laptop. Press Fn and the labeled
function key simultaneously. Refer to your laptop's documentation to discover your laptop's key
