It seems that nowadays, as fast as you can say, “I just bought a new laptop”, computer technology has changed again. New computers are faster, smarter, and smaller than ever, but often the devices we use them with are not as current. One of the main struggles with the newer laptop is that it does not have a VGA plug (see below). If you want to use your laptop for a presentation, but need an adapter to use the projector, you can visit the Safety Services Business Office and check out a VGA to HDMI adapter.
VGA is an older standard that carries only a video signal. HDMI is the new cable standard and can carry both digital video and audio signals. Our new laptops do not have a VGA connector.
If you need to give a presentation and the projector uses the VGA cable for connection visit the Safety Services Business Office and check out a VGA to HDMI adapter.
With this adapter, you will attach the (blue) VGA cable from the projector to the adapter. Next. plug the adapter into your laptop in the HDMI port.
