Computer supported by CVMBS Computing Resources Group at 297-HELP(4357). CVMBS Computer Support Policy with details available at http://www.cvmbs.colostate.edu/netserv/CVMBS_Comp_Support_Policy-FY06-0.docIncluded in the policy are details on specialized software in Teaching Computer Labs. "Additional software designated by instructors will be installed, if (a) CRG has 4 weeks to install/test it before it is needed for teaching (b) The software can run as a normal (not-privileged) user and presents no network security issues."
* Network Drives can be accessed via the "Login-Logout" desktop icon. Always remember to log out using the same desktop icon. This unmounts your private drives, otherwise your personal files are available for others to see.
** S drive not available? To mount just the public drives (S,X), go to Start > Log Off and the computer will refresh with the public drives only.
***Memory Stick issues? If you can't read your memory stick on the
podium computers, in most cases this is because the user used proprietary
software (included with their memory stick) to protect (encrypt or read-protect)
the data. They will need to undo this protection - CRG is unable to accommodate
all the varieties of software and permissions/privileges required to
unlock memory sticks that have been protected in this way.
The existing Podium PC is recommended for use, but users may opt to bring their own laptop or check out a laptop from Instructional Technology. A VGA and an audio cable to connect your laptop to the podium port for display and sound is provided. Please note that the AMX remote control's Power Point advance slide feature is not available on personal laptops.
The display is on the screen only and not showing on the laptop (or vice versa). Press the function keys on the laptop that let you display an external monitor. Hold down the function key (Fn) usually located on the bottom right of your keyboard and then press the function key along the top of your laptop keyboard labeled CRT/LCD.
It's usually F8. Remember that this key may be different on each brand of laptop. You may need to repeat this procedure until your image displays on your laptop as well as on the screen. Each time your press the key, it may take a few seconds to kick in. There are three display choices: both, computer only, and projector only.
If you hook up a laptop that is already running, you may need to reboot in order for the projector to be properly recognized.
Change your display setting to 1024 x768 pixels.
