Connecting an InFocus projector to a Toshiba laptop gives you big-screen viewing combined with portability. The InFocus is useful in everywhere from classrooms to business to home theatre environments, offering display sizes of up to 20 feet diagonally. Combined with the media playing versatility of a laptop PC, anything from text to videos to games can be displayed at a size that's viewable by large audiences. The InFocus connects to your Toshiba's external VGA video port, and operates like a secondary monitor mirroring the laptop's display or working as an extended display. The total set-up times is just minutes.

  1. 1

    Plug the 15-pin VGA connector located on the projector data transfer cable into the VGA connector port of the Toshiba laptop.

  2. 2

    Plug the USB connector on the projector data transfer cable into the USB port of your Toshiba laptop in order to control the laptop mouse, or Microsoft PowerPoint with the InFocus remote.

  3. 3

    Plug the M1 connector at the other end of the data transfer cable to the M1 port on the rear connection panel of your InFocus projector.

  4. 4

    Press the power button on the InFocus projector and then turn on the Toshiba laptop.

  5. 5

    Wait through the Toshiba's boot-up process for it to automatically detect the projector with the installed operating system. The system will either install the drivers to run the project itself, or prompt you to supply a driver location. Insert the InFocus driver CD or download the drivers from the InFocus website and then follow the driver installation directions as provided by the operating system to install your InFocus projector display drivers so that the system will recognise the projector. Once installed, the projector should project your laptop desktop.
