INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOOKING UP A LAPTOP/MACBOOK TO LCD LOLLYPOP STAND
 

Summary: INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOOKING UP
A LAPTOP/MACBOOK TO LCD LOLLYPOP STAND
LAPTOP
1) Plug the power cord for the laptop into power outlet of the Computer Center (the black box with
the lid in the front of the center table).
2) Pull the VGA cable from the Computer Center and connect it to your laptop. (This is what allows
the laptop to project on the LCD.)
3) Hit the Fn and F8 (CRT/LCD) keys at the same time to project to the LCD. (This works as a
toggle, so keep hitting the key-combination until the display is correct.)
4) Right-click on the desktop and select Graphic Properties and then Display Settings to change
the resolution. (The native resolution of the LCD is 1366 x 768 but the best setting will be
dependent on the laptop's capabilities. Try different options to find the one that works best.)
