Before using a powerbook in one of the smart classrooms, you may need to rescan the displays so it can be used. To do this, you should connect the powerbook to the VGA cord on the smart panel. Next, you should go into Displays in System Properties, or if the display icon is in the menu bar, you can click on that. Finally, you should choose rescan. When the computer is done, you should be able to use the F5 or F7 key to switch display modes (laptop only, laptop and projector, or projector only).
