Connecting an external monitor in Samsung® R620
Ways and methods of connecting an external monitor to the Samsung R620
Your Samsung R620 laptop has the ability to connect an external display, such as a LCD, flat panel display or projector, and then have the display transfer to that device instead of the laptop screen. In order to connect an external monitor, get the necessary cables and adapters to connect your laptop to the monitor and power both on. Connect one end of the cable to your laptop's video port and the other end to the external monitor. Once everything is connected, your Samsung R620 laptop will automatically switch to the external display. Your laptop will determine that a new hardware has been attached and automatically configures it.
Some things to be kept in mind while connecting an external monitor to the Samsung R620:
- VGA connector
- Sufficient charge
- High capacity processor
