On your laptop keyboard, see if there is a function key on the button-left of the keyboard, plus one F something with a logo that looks like a computer screen. For example, on mine which is a HP Pavilion, it is the key Function + F4.

    See if the resolution of the screen fits with the projector's: try another resolution (for example 800X600, 1024X768, or else).

"Frequency is out of range"

Most likely your PC or laptop is currently set to a display resolution that is too high for the projector or is one that it cannot handle. Try setting your computer display to 640 x 480 or 800 x 600 and see if you can get the projector to work. If it does, then you can figure out the maximum display resolution you can use. Also consult your projector documentation for supported resolution modes.
