Display of image between laptop and projector

The image on my laptop is not showing unless I move the window to the extreme right (off screen) - then it shows on the projector. I am desperate - I am training tomorrow and I won't be able to use my presentation. HELP!

We can't seem to get the picture from the laptop to the projector


For Windows 7 and Vista- Close or minimise all windows, right click on the desktop and select "Screen Resolution". Press the "Detect" button and if another display comes up, on the dropdown menu labelled "Multiple displays" select either:
"Duplicate these Displays" to show the same image on both screens

or

"Extend these displays" to have 2 separate displays (the position of the second display can be changed by dragging the box labelled "2"

For Windows XP - Close or minimise all windows, right click on the desktop and select "Properties" and then the "settings" tab. Click on the greyed out box labelled "2" and Tick the box labelled "Extend my desktop onto this display". click apply.

Not showing entire image on screen


It's possible that your projector doesn't natively support your display resolution, but to know more it would be best if you could provide the following details:

Projector Model
PC Model
Windows Version
Windows Resolution/Refresh Rate
Display type (if laptop) cloned/extended, etc

Thanks!

I can see my background but cannot see anything else


Hi,

The Fn+F8 in some laptops or Fn+ KEYS WHICH HAS MONITOR ICON OVER FUNCTION KEY) command tyically runs through 3 modes: Extend desktop, Laptop only, Projector only.

Mirroring displays (meaning you see the exact same thing on both screens) is not always on option on a PC; the ability to do that is dependent on the graphics card and drivers in the laptop.
Not seeing the exact same thing on both screens is often the preferred way, but when you don't see all your desktop icons it can be a bit confusing.

The trick here is that when you want something to show on the projector, you grab the window you're working with and drag it over to the other monitor. Why this is preferred is because you can be showing a powerpoint presentation on the projector, while you have a script or notes open in Word on your laptop display to read from. You see, you don't see anything but the desktop background on the projector because you haven't moved anything over there yet.

Your laptop is in extended mode, try changing to Laptop mode, should solve your problem or try dragging the required file to that monitor as said above

LCD projector not displaying image of the laptop


On that Dell, you have to tell the laptop to display the image on an external unit--look on either F4 or F8--you will find a small TV screen symbol. You have to press and hold "alt" and press the key. The options are, 1-show image on just the laptop, 2-show the image on the laptop *and* something else, (like a projector), or 3-show an image on JUST an external display. NOTE: Sometimes, you have to turn on the projector FIRST, then immediately turn on the laptop so they boot together--just one of those strange things...(remember, **for example** first press of "alt" F4 will get you laptop and projector, second press of "alt F4 will get you JUST the projector, third press of the keys will bring you back to just the laptop)---Rick

I just purchased an Acer X1160 Projector and obviously am not savvy enough to understand what to do to make it work. When connected to my HP Laptop I get the image of my screen saver, but cannot get...


Your computer is probably using the projector as a second screen instead of displaying a copy of the laptop screen.
The quickest way to confirm is to try moving your cursor (mouse) off the right-hand side of the screen. Does it then show up on the projector? If so, then you can grab and move windows back and forth between the two screens.


If that solves it for you, please be sure to click the thumbs-up.
If not, add a comment and I'll try to explain

PC connected to projector shows only in Blue


Are you saying that the projection is solid blue? Is it similar to, say, the desktop on the laptop screen? Try moving your mouse off to the right side of the laptop. Did it show up on projector? Exciting! Try dragging stuff over. Damn, this is sweet.

Screen adjustment


Adjust the screen area of the computer’s display settings to match the projector’s native resolution. Refer to your projector documentation for the optimum or native-resolution setting for your projector model. If you can't find this information or are uncertain, most projectors support a maximum of 800 x 600 pixels.
• With certain laptops, you might need to disable the laptop display to obtain the best image, especially when the native resolution of the laptop exceeds the native resolution of the projector.
• Font smoothing will automatically generate a cleaner font outline, both on your laptop and on the projector. To apply font smoothing, do the following:
1.
In Control Panel, open Display.
2.
On the Appearance tab, click the Effects button.
3.
In the Effects dialog box, select the Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts check box, and then select Standard or ClearType in the list.


If the projected image is dimmer than it was on the laptop, check your projector documentation for information regarding lamp timers. If the lamp life has expired, replace the lamp for maximum brightness.
If the projected image is not rectangular, try one or both of the following:
• Make sure that the projector is perpendicular to the viewing screen.
• Raise or lower the projector.
If the projected image displays vertical lines, "bleeding," or spots, try one or more of the following:
• Adjust the brightness of the image.
• Check the projector lens to see whether it needs cleaning.
• Adjust the sync and tracking on the projector.

How fast will you get this question?


Hi,

Assuming no probs on the projector, PC and cables -
Try lowering down the screen display resolution of your PC before pressing the FN + F7. Once displayed on the projector, you can increase to desired/workable settings. (Right click on a clear space of your desktop, click on Properties, click on Settings tab, in Screen resolution, move slider towards the extreme left).

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things went or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.
