Hi @topcoat,

 

Could you please respond back with the exact model number of your notebook? That way I can look up the specifications and see what ports you have and identify what type of cable you'll need. Once you have the right cable, you'll just plug it in and then press the Windows key + P to bring up the external monitor options:

 

Duplicate: Same thing shows on both monitors

Extend: External monitor provides extra space in extension to the notebook monitor

Projector only: No display on the notebook monitor, only on the external monitor

Disconnect projector: Turns off the external monitor display

 

Press Windows key + P multiple times until the option you want is selected.
