Question about Toshiba Satellite A15-S127 Notebook

1 Answer

The projector doesn't show what is on my screen

The projector just shows the my desktop picture - so it would appear that there is a communication between the laptop and the projector. However, when I try to use the Fn F5 option - it doesn't appear to work i.e. it doesn't toggle on / off - is it possible to lock this button?

The laptop is an Acer Aspire

    does it show anything? or is the projector saying 'no signal'?

Your projector may be on the 2nd screen or presentation mode of your video card. open an application and drag the application window off your screen (try both sides) and see if it will appear on the projector.

Can't get my notebook screan to show


hello,
Indentify the video output options of the computer and the input options of the projector. Most common are VGA and S-Video. use the appropriate cable to connect the two. Your projector may be able to probe its ports to see what signal it is getting.
On your computer. After you make the hardware connection and your projector is set to receive on the correct port, extend your desktop to show on a TV if S-Video, or on a monitor if VGA. To have the screen of your computer to appear on the external screen, use the FN-Fx key combinations. Examine the laptop`s function keys and look for some icon that shows a computer and a screen. Most probably it is the F5 key.
Assuming F5 to be the right key, you press Fn-F5 and an OSD will appear on your computer. You scroll from an icon to the other by pressing F5 while still pressing down the Fn key.

If that does not work, I suggest you check your computer s manual for the right key combinations.
Hope it helps.

MacBook connected Hitachi CP x301 Icons do not appear


Ok what's happening is that you have it set up as an extension of your desktop, you need to mirror the displays. when your projector is plugged in and it is showing only the desktop background, open "System Preferences," click "Displays," click "Positioning" and check the box that says "Mirror Displays." This should do the trick.
