    I found drivers for a Win 7 Laptop that work. The old Dell laptop did not work with windows 8.1 as there are no drivers for that old of a machine yet. I talked to manufacturers of projector and all they could come up with was Vista drivers.

The user's guide says for ceiling mounting,
"Set Front Ceiling in the System Setup: Basic > Projector Position menu after you turn the projector on."

The user's guide is on the CD included with the projector as a pdf file. You can also download the user's guide here:

Double check which menu item you are expecting to find the orientation. It might even be under 'image', 'settings', or its own button not in the menu, Jon.

What's your question? Apparently you broke it so who can possibly say what the damage might be.

Projector connection

Win XP and Vista and Win 7 will have the proper drivers for an external projector. Just plug in the projector BEFORE you start the laptop and the drivers should get installed automatically and video should go to the projector (but not the laptop). You may need to adjust the resolution for best image. Once it's running, you can "toggle" from external to internal screen using one of your function keys. It usually has symbols like small TVs on it.

My hp laptop plays the dvd but the viewsonic does

Try pressing the "Fn" function key, holding it and pressing a key on the laptop in the "F" series that either says CRT/LCD or something similar to get it to show up on the projector. Let me know if you are still having trouble.
