This setup has a cart with a VGA switch box. The switch box has either a knob or two buttons which the user will use to change the inputs. Option A is the Room PC input and Option B is the Laptop input.


Common Issues:

  1. There is a blank screen being projected:

    • Confirm the PC is powered on and that the correct input is selected.

  2. The sound is not working

    • There should be a set of speakers on the smartcart. Make sure those are powered on and connected to the PC. If you are using a laptop the speakers will need to be connected to the laptop for audio.
