4 Quick steps to turning your Lenovo IdeaCentre AIO Y910 into a second monitor

Step 1:  Find the VGA or HDMI in port on your laptop. (You'll need an HDMI, VGA cable or a combination of the two via an adapter to connect your laptop to the IdeaCentre AIO Y910.

Step 3: Make sure the switch to the front left of the screen on the IdeaCentre AIO Y910 is switched to "monitor only.”

Step 4: Using the display settings on your laptop, adjust the IdeaCentre AIO Y910 according to your display preferences. (In Windows®, you should be able to choose from a variety of settings).
