Re: how to run monitor and projector same time
You need to hold down the FN key (located in the bottom left of your keyboard) and press the F4 key (I believe)
This will toggle between your LCD screen, your projector, and then both at the same time. Be patient, sometimes it takes a while for the picture to show up.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Uploader comment; "HP Pavilion DV6000 Blank screen fix BGA rework video problem This BGA rework fix also works on the HP DV2000, DV6000 and DV9000 there are a couple more HP's with this BGA video issue. This is a design flaw that we solved with our upgraded copper heat sink and thermal compound. Also effected by this issue are a couple Compaq models. The Comaq Presario V3000 V6000 and a couple of the Pavilion models."
Not showing for advertising of repair. Showing for adding extra copper sheeting material, to the graphics chipset. A BGA Rework Station is the best method.
The problem, is inadequate cooling for the graphics chipset. Bad design by HP.
As you can see in the above information, the bottom of the graphics chipset has Solder Balls. These Solder Balls match up with Copper Pads on the motherboard. (The Copper Pads are also gold plated)
The graphics chipset is set into place on the motherboard, with the Solder Balls lining up on the Copper Pads. Heat is then applied at a specific temperature, and length of time.
This action melts the Solder Balls, and solders the graphics chipset TO the Copper Pads. Which in turn of course, solders the graphics chipset TO the motherboard.
The solder connections made are called Solder Joints. When the graphics chipset repeatedly overheats, the solder connections partially melt again. Then the laptop is turned off, and the graphics chipset cools down.
This causes Cold Solder Joints, and a bad contact of graphics chipset TO motherboard.
If this is a problem with your laptop state back in a Comment. Going on............
IF, the display shows on the external VGA monitor, and is good; the problem is the Video Cable, or inside the Display Assembly. (screen Inverter or LCD screen)
Let me know after your diagnosis what the outcome is. 1) NO display on external VGA monitor. 2) Display on external VGA monitor.
This problem was also faced by me some time ago, i just change the data cable (vga cable) and then it will recognized by system,
i suggest to change the vga cable and try to find the DVI cable if possible to connect the projector to system end.
Hope this helps.
This happened to me once, it turned out to be the visual settings of the graphics card. In my case it was an Nvidia card and the softare allows you to have a different setting per monitor. All of the contrast, brightness, and well, all the settings were all the way down, but only for the Benq. I turned them all up and saved, now it works great. It was just like you described, a very, very faint image was visible. I suspect my graphics driver was updated, and the projector settings were somehow set to zero.
I assume you mean video card instead of video drive. The nvidia GPU ( Graphics Processing Unit ) is built into your m/board. The only way to upgrade from say 256mb to 512mb is a m/board replacement. If you have a GPU failure ie failed graphics out put forstly test to see if the output to external monitor works - do that by pluging and external monitor into the vga port located on the l/h side up near the power on button - if there is no putput or it has coloured vertical lines your graphics chip is failing. the only rectification is m/board replacement. Hp has just recently trashed a huge number of defective m/boards in the pavilion dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 & presario v3000 v6000 range and had them remanufactured to correct this GPU failure
Try pressing your fn key and f4.Also right click on desktop, click nvidia control panel, make sure all external monitor or projector is hooked up,click on multiple displays,you should see a drop down menue telling you to select wich display to use. Hope this helps.
Your card certainly will support two monitors. It has two connectors and they are accessed by the nVidia software, available from the manufacturer's website. The link to find the latest version is below. You need to select '7 Series' in the second pull-down menu, and in the third you'll have to select your operating system. The software is a bit confusing, but I have the same video card in my computer, so if you need further help, please post your question / results by reply to this conversation.
