Hi, this is Double Agent Arce with the Geek Squad. I'm here to show you how to connect your laptop to a projector. Now, the first step is to physically connect the VGA cable. So what you want to do is take the blue cable here, plug one end into your laptop just like that, and the other end into the back of the projector. Now, once you've got it connected and you get the projector powered on and the computer's in Windows, you then want to go ahead and go into the Windows desktop. You want to right-click on the desktop and either go to personalize or properties, depending on whether you have Vista of XP. From there, you click on display settings, and in display settings, you'll see number two. That number two is for the projector. So you want to go and adjust the resolution to match your projector. You can find the resolution for your projector on the box or in the manual. If you're not sure how to get it connected or looking to get a better picture, just give us a call at 800-Geek-Squad. We can help you get connected.
