Hi there

Check that your resolution on your PC matches that of your Projector.

i.e : If your Projector is XGA ( 1024x768 ) that should be the resolution of your PC as well.

To change your resolution on your PC simply right click on your desktop and go to properties and then settings. You'll see the resolution bar in the middle.

Sure can be fixed.

1st of all you need to connect the projector with your laptop turned off. One the laptop has finished booting and loading windows. Hit the Fn+f4 or f7 key to switch between the displays then you will get the display.

But if this also does not give display then you can check with the projector with Video INPUTS (Eg. Input 1 / Input 2 etc.,)

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


"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.

When playing Video or movie from my PC, the picture is jerky and slow. I probably don't have the correct device driver loaded on my PC. I am running Windows XP.

How long is your cable run? What type of cable connection are you using? Do you think you need to amplify the signal?

No input

Could be many things. Does it light up at all? Does another input work (video?)?
Any indicator lights lit, flashing, changing color during start-up?

If the unit has a VGA ( PC ) input you can just get a Male / Male RGB / VGA Cable.

If it doesn't have a PC input you can get a VGA / RGB to Component Cable wich is widely availabe from most PC Shops.
