Hi, it is possible that your notebook is set to a high resolution that your projector cannot handle. You may want to try to: 1) run your notebook as is (without connecting to the projector); 2) soon as windows booted up, right click on any clear area of your desktop and click on Properties; 3)Go to the Settings tab; 4) Set the Screen resolution to the lowest possible setting, towards left (less) and the Color quality to the lowest possible. Clilck Ok then reboot. Run once to see everything is OK except your icons are bigger now. Youo can try connecting your projector to see if it works. Hope this be of help to you. Cheers.

    Hi again, if this works, you can try setting the resolution and quality higher one increment at a time. Stop when your projector goes "blue" again, press escape to revert to previous setting. Kind regards.

How to disable the Windows XP Splash Screen / logo at startup ?
To disable the Windows XP splash screen (logo) at startup, and to see the list of drivers loading at startup, follow these steps:
Click Start, Run and type MSCONFIG
Click the Boot.ini tab
Under Operating Systems section, select the appropriate entry and then enable the /SOS switch in the Boot Options section below
Click OK and close MSCONFIG utility.
The corresponding entry in the Boot.ini file is automatically added. Example given below:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(5)\WINDOWS="XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
becomes
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(5)\WINDOWS="XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /sos
The /sos parameter displays the names of the drivers as they load during the boot process. Use when startup fails (while loading drivers) to determine which driver is failing to load. See Boot Parameter Reference for more information.
Also see /noguiboot parameter, which can also disable the splash screen.

Logon


Go into your BIOS
Set the 1st Boot device preference to CD
Insert your windows XP disk
Boot from CD
Run XP Repair

You do this at your own risk. I am in no way accountable for damage to your computer.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you tried pressing Fn + F? keys on the notebook to cycle through the choices; notebook display, notebook display + external, external only. The F? key would be one of the function keys with the small monitor icon.

Additionally, you may want to lower not only the screen resolution but likewise with the screen refresh rates.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.

Do you see a startup screen with the Windows Logo? Does the logon screen come up? Does the computer get out of the BIOS startup?
