    Does your computer have a DVI, Composite or VGA port on it? These are the standard connections that are used to output video to such a device.

Projectors typically require RCA (yellow - round - single pin) or S-Video (black - round - multipin) connections. Look for a key on your keyboard that has a monitor symbol on it (sometimes 2 symbols - on/off). Once you have connected the projector and turned it on, tap the monitor key and you should see your desktop projected. I've also seen laptops where you need to enable the secondary display thru the 'Display Settings'.

Select the monitor 2, click on extend my desktop to this monitor.

Then you can drag windows either out from your main monitor, to up, down, or the sides debends on where you set the 2nd display, you can also change the position of the 2nd screen by draging it around in the middle.

No signal from computer to projector


That might be because of the weak or bad connection of computer or the projector. Also you should check whether the projector is out of order or not.

How do i switch to external monitor


Virtually all IBM and Lenovo ThinkPad and ThinkCenter laptops allow you to hook up an additional monitor or projector to the computer. When you add an external monitor or projector to your notebook, you can choose to view the display on the computer, on the external device, or on both the laptop and the external monitor or projector at the same time. Toggling between viewing devices is as simple as pressing a couple of keys on the keyboard.

Shut down the laptop. Plug the VGA monitor cable from the external monitor or projector into the blue VGA port on the back of the computer. Turn on the external monitor or projector first, and then the Lenovo laptop. Allow the notebook to boot into Windows normally. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys at the same time to switch the display from the laptop to the external monitor or projector. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys again to enable the display on both the laptop and the external display device. Press the "Fn" and "F7" keys again to display screen contents only on the laptop LCD. choose support you need http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-54305.html http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-4YQHUC.html enable tv out on thinkpad http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-58625

Projector only displays desktop wall paper not laptop images


stop the dual monitor moded and it will project what is on the Desktop screen

for this right click on desktop -> properties -> (on the window) Settings here take away the check box for "Extend my Windows desktop to this monitor" and you can have what ever is displayed on your desktop on the screen

but if you keep the the existing setup then you can just drag the windows to the right or left edges and it will move on to the screen and you can use the projector image as an extended monitor, this will be useful when you want to have your presentation and your background work/ Document seperate from the viewing audience, try it you may like it

cheers

You need to change your computer display settings following your TV user manual.

Here follow the compatible display settings as on page 57-chapter 9 on manual.

I have a new Acer Aspire computer and am not able to project an image through my Sharp KR-32x projector. I have tried both VGA connection and USB connections.


please check the manual for the setup instructions also consult your notebook manual to look for the key stroke to extend the display to the projector.Ensure the little details like input mode and that the lens coveris removed etc.
Also check this video for general instruction on connecting the projector to notebook
