How do I use the split screen on my Dell computer?


The universal way to display a split screen (on laptop screen, and on monitor/projector at the same time) is to hold down the function key (Fn) and press F5. You may have to press F5 a couple times.. by pressing F5 is cycles through a couple different modes (external video only, laptop/external video, and then back to only laptop screen).

Select the monitor 2, click on extend my desktop to this monitor.

Then you can drag windows either out from your main monitor, to up, down, or the sides debends on where you set the 2nd display, you can also change the position of the 2nd screen by draging it around in the middle.

My screen on my laptop is broken. Can i plug a monitor into my laptop?


1) connect your external monitor to the laptop and then switch the monitor on
2) boot up the laptop
3) after it has successfully booted, you need to identify which function key toggles the external monitor on/off
4) you should be able to do this by holding down the Fn key and trying each of the F keys in turn, waiting a few seconds after pressing each one
5) begin by holding down "Fn" + "F3", "Fn" + "F4", "Fn" + "F5" etc.

If this doesn't work, it may be worth examining all the keys and look for a small monitor symbol on one of the keys. If you find this symbol, hold down the Fn key and then hit the corresponding key with the monitor symbol.

On a laptop you have to activate the VGA output with a key combination, usually Fn & F3. The appropriate F-key will have a symbol of a monitor on it.

You may also need to change the screen resolution to a smaller size to suit the projector.

Hi-

Check the ports from the back of your projector, look for an s-video port then check the available ports as well on your computer, so you either use an S-video cable or VGA cable, then when you connect your computer, if its a laptop press fn key then double tap f5 or f7.

keep me posted
