Your laptop will generally have one of the function keys dedicated to switching the video output modes - typically it's changing between three settings: LCD Only / External Output Only / Mirror LCD to External.
Your particular laptop will implement this in a manufacturer-specific fashion, but most laptops I have seen will have a little icon on the appropriate function key that either looks like two LDC screens, or perhaps a monitor icon, or sometimes even just the word ';LCD';.
Once the projector is hooked up, start hitting that function key, often you'll need to hold down another key (like ';fn'; or a blue box down along the lower row of your keyboard) to make the ';alternate'; function of the function key operate. Clear as mud? :-)
Don't worry - give it a try - you're not going to hurt anything and sometimes it's just trial and error to get the right combination of output modes and video settings.
