trouble hooking up projector to windows 7

Hey guys i got an aaxa m2 projector and im not sure how to hook it up to my computer with windows 7. In xp i know how change the settings to i can have an extended desktop, or duplicate desktop which the projector then acts as a 2nd monitor but in windows 7 im not sure.. Is there some hotkey combination that lets me toggle through the settings?

btw projector is pretty nifty! all the more reason i need to figure out how to get it to work on my laptop not just my desktop.

To toggle: Windows Key + P

You might have to lower resolution on desktop for projector to work.

Thanks that solved my problem. The toggle command is nice. i changed my desktop resolution, hooked it up, then change my desktop resolution back to normal and fiddled with what resolutions would use. Was pretty easy after i tried the windows key +p Thanks

Also another thing to watch out for is the screen refresh rate. A friend of mine couldn't get his to work, kept getting a "Not Support" message. After calling their techsupport person, we found out the refresh hz should be 60hz only. Hope this helps.
