The problem might be related to your native screen resolution. The C702TU laptop has a resolution of 1280 x 800. Most projectors do not support this resolution and if you cloned the main display, your projector cannot sync at this resolution. Look for an option to output a second display )instead of cloning) within your display settings. If your projector is plugged into your VGA port and turned on, Windows usually detects the second display automatically. Change the resolution on the second screen to something like 1024x768 or 800x600. These resolutions are supported almost universally across projectors.

How do i connect compaq presario x1000 to external monitor


Hi Judy,

The Compaq Presario x1000 notebook offers connections for external displays at the rear below the screen hinge as show in the picture below:

steve_con_5.gif

Identifying the back from left to right: Ventilation slots, External VGA Port, S-Video Port, USB Port, USB Port, RJ-45 Network Jack, RJ-11 Telephone Jack, Parallel Printer Port, USB Port and 1394 (a.k.a. "Firewire") Port.

You can connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port (blue colored jack) very easily. Any analog VGA monitor should readily connect to it. Additionally, the x1000 can output its display to TV or other monitor that accepts "S-Video" signals. An "S-Video" cable will be needed to connect between the "S-Video" jacks on the notebook (next to the VGA Port) and one on the TV. It is important to note that not all TVs support both or either "S-Video" or VGA inputs. When ever the there is a choice of using S-Video or VGA on a TV or monitor, the VGA will provide the best looking picture, and should be used.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

I have an Acer One netbook and tried to connect it to a projector but the normal looking lead from the projector did not seem to fit. The lead has those two wee screws at the side, and no place for them...


The Acer One netbook has a mini-VGA port on its left side. Page 10 of Acer's QuickGuide shows the port as item 3 External display (VGA) port. But unfortunately, the description shown for it is incorrect.
From your description, your projector's lead likely has a mini-VGA connector on the end as pictured. The connector can simply be plugged into the mini-VGA port but there are no holes beside the port for screws so it would just be a friction fit which should be sufficiently secure for most puposes. The connector and port are mini-DB 15 male and female respectively and can only fit one-way. The port has the wide side of the D on top so you would have to turn the pictured connector over to be able to plug it into the port. Windows XP should be able to detect the projector via plug-and-play installing any display drivers if required. Page 8 of Acer's UserGuide describes Hotkey + Display toggle which switches display output between the display screen, external monitor (if connected) and both. Pressing + with the projector plugged in will bring up a window in the middle of the screen allowing the selection of internal display, external display, both, or a 800x600 VGA projector. If the display is on the projector, unplugging the cable should automatically revert display back to the internal screen. For VGA see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector splines.jpg

I cannot switch to my projector with this notebook. I held down the Fn key and then I pressed F5. What else am I suppose to do


what kind of projector are you using? what color are the ends of the cable you are connecting your projector to the laptop with? if your using the Blue ends, be sure your projector is on, and is running on the VGA input. Most projectors do not auto detect input and must be set manually prior to the FN + F5 key combination. White connector ends are called DVI or Digital input on the projector.

I con't connect with lcd projector, xp windows


The video output will automatically switch to the data projector first when you power up the data projector first and then boot up the laptop.
When you power up the laptop first you can toggle the Windows image between the LCD screen and the video port/data projector by pressing the Fn key plus the F4 key. Pressing these keys each time will switch the display from LCD screen to video port only, to both LCD screen and video port, and back to LCD screen only.

You might have not enabled your computers second display.

This is actually a very nice feature, because you could run your powerpoint slide on the monitor while still running your normal applications on the laptop screen.

Go into control panel, display properties and then click on the "second" monitor (you could click on "Identify" to see which is which) and then select the "expand my desktop onto this screen.

The LCD display will be just a normal background, but you can drag windows from your laptop screen onto the LCD and back.

Hope this helps
