Q:
How can a computer monitor be run simultaneously with the projector?
A:
If you're using a PC laptop, hold down the Fn key and press the function key that lets you display on an external monitor. It may have an icon labeled CRT/LCD. Allow a few seconds for the projector to sync up after pressing it. Check your laptop's manual or online help for details. On most systems, the CRT/LCD key lets you toggle between the LCD screen and the projector, or display on both at the same time. Depending on your computer's video card, you might need to use the Display utility in the Control Panel to make sure that both the LCD screen and external monitor port are enabled. See your computer's documentation or online help for details. If you're using a Macintosh laptop with OS 9.x, you may need to set up your system to display on the projector screen as well as the LCD screen. Follow these steps:

2. Click the Arrange icon.
3. Drag one monitor icon on top of the other. If the Arrange option isn't available, you may need to select one of the Simulscan resolution settings:
