Make sure the plug going from the projector into the monitor plug on the back of your PC is connected firmly. Also, make sure it is in the right plug to begin with.

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

Can I connect a projector (for presentations powerpoint etc )to my HP Compac desktop? Works with my laptop but need to use the Desktop also.


You should be able to. It will somewhat depend on what video connections your PC has and what the projector will allow. If your desktop does not have the correct connections you can get a video card that should have what you need. Here is a link to video cards from a reputable dealer.

On a laptop you have to activate the VGA output with a key combination, usually Fn & F3. The appropriate F-key will have a symbol of a monitor on it.

You may also need to change the screen resolution to a smaller size to suit the projector.

Connect projector to HP desktop


If you are attempting to connect an LCD projector to a laptop,you connect a monitor cable to your video card and the other end to the monitor input connector. You may have to use an adapter, I know on my LCD projector I had to use a DVI to VGA connector.
Can't say much more not knowing if you are having a problem with a particular brand of projector

Sometimes you have to hold down the function key (usually labeled FN) and then press one of the F keys to get the laptop to send the signal to the projector. On my laptop its FN + F8. The key should have a picture of a monitor or say something like CRT/LCD.
