Using laptops in Study Booths and Project Rooms

Read this general user guide for more detailed instructions on how to connect your laptop to the display in a library project room.

We cannot guarantee that your laptop will work straight away when connecting it to a display in a library.

If you are having difficulties, we recommend that you consult this chart which lists the video activation commands for common laptop manufacturers. Most laptop computers require a function key or software command to activate/deactivate the laptop video output signal - the actual function key varies according to manufacturer and/or model.

If you need further assistance, please visit the Student IT service desk on the Ground Floor.
