If your netbook has an external VGA port (blue 9-pin connector) you may use the integrated dual display/extended/or external features of your netbook using the necVT460 VGA port. The resolution max supported is 800x600, so make sure you setup ur display at this resolution before attempting to extend the video signal.
The quickest way to change the display output settings is to use the
display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order
(the last two options are available if an external monitor is
? Built-in display only
? Built-in display and external monitor (simultaneously)
? External monitor only
? Built-in display and TV (or other external video device)
? TV (or other external video device)
? External monitor and TV
? Built-in display and external monitor (extended mode)
? Built-in display and TV (extended mode)
? External monitor and TV (extended mode)
? Swap-Switch primary display between internal display
and external monitor when using extended desktop
If you see something coming from your PC on your TV, you're almost there!
When you hook up a monitor to your laptop, there's two ways it can work. It can show the same image on both displays, or can "Extend" the desktop on to both screens. In the extend mode, you can have different things on each screen.
Here's what you do to see which mode its in: - On an empty spot on the desktop, right-click. - In the menu that comes up, choose Display Properties, or Screen resolution. - This will bring up the Display properties.
Here's where you need to look to get it configured properly.
You most likely will see two boxes in one area. One will have a number one, the other a number two. If number two is one the right of number one, this means that your display is being extended to the right of the number one monitor. You can verify this by moving your mouse PAST the right edge of the screen. When it goes past, it should show up on the other screen.
Ok.I got your point.Actually you're in extended mode.
Once you connect you can have 2 types of output to your projector.
1.Clone mode--> make everthing look the same
2.Extended mode--> have another new space for you to use.
** in extended mode you'll have a background of your desktop.you can drag any running program to that space.
How to setup clone and extended mode
1.Click start-->Settings-->Conteol Panel-->Display
2.Under Display Properties window click the last tab name settings
3.Under display select you 2nd monitor
3.Below Screen Resolution you should be able to see a checkbox "extended my windows destop on to this monitor"
please check this box for extended mode or uncheck it incase you won't to use clone mode.
